Managing disease with diagnostics

From screening and monitoring to diagnosis and prognosis

Published 23 June 2021

Early medical diagnoses were largely based on the presentation of signs and symptoms, but the past few decades have seen significant improvements in medical science.

Diagnostic testing has become indispensable for identifying and monitoring disease, predicting treatment responses, screening and prevention.

To understand the incredible complexity of our bodies and provide the best care possible, healthcare professionals rely on a variety of diagnostic tools to gather critical information and gain personalised insights.

Across all therapeutic areas we work to support the real needs of people, communities, and healthcare systems. By watching over the global health landscape, we identified 4 particularly burdensome disease areas that we believe require extra attention to address the high medical need. Groups of disease that affect more than just the individual, impacting loved ones, employers, healthcare systems, and entire economies.
