Thinking beyond medication

Frontier Business. Providing more holistic care. Scouting new ideas. Enabling novel technologies. Connecting the best scientific minds and collaborators.

We are pioneering new frontiers in healthcare that go beyond medication.

Today, we are surging ahead to achieve that promise. Through joint research and development programs, we are turning ideas and concepts into real solutions and products – with a focus on mental health and active aging – to provide people with more complete support.

Empowering people with more choices

Mental wellbeing is important. It affects our ability to think and feel. Maintaining our mental health is key to active aging and for living a happy life. For people with mental or age-related cognitive disorders, recovering and maintaining mental wellbeing is even more important.

Medication is considered, for the most part, the cornerstone to managing mental health conditions. But pharmacotherapy alone may not be enough in certain instances.

Empowering people with more flexible and convenient choices may create a better solution that allows them to access the right therapy at the right time while reducing lingering stigmas and loneliness.

By developing new technologies and other innovations, we are providing people with broader solutions to achieve better access to care and comprehensive management of their conditions.
