Knowledge Partner

We created the Novartis Biome as a bridge to help our partners become an extension of our own teams, working with us as easily and productively as possible to jointly innovate and co-develop digital solutions at scale.

We’re taking on some of the biggest healthcare challenges – something we can’t and don’t want to do on our own. We’re committed to partnering with the best in the ecosystem to combine our deep scientific experience with the expertise of the tech world to develop – and crucially – scale digital solutions that improve and extend patients’ lives.

To do this, we realize we need to make it easier for companies big and small to partner with us. The healthcare industry is notoriously complicated – highly regulated and traditionally behind the curve in terms of digital disruption.
