The Digital Health Platforms group at Roche/Genentech is part of the R&D Personalized Healthcare (PHC) Center of Excellence building the next generation digital health platform, tools, and products for the future of medicine. We are building a clinically validated, highly scalable and secure software platform with regulatory, quality, and privacy requirements. Our platform and services support advanced analysis of data captured and transmitted from apps, tools, Software as Medical Device (SaMDs), connected medical devices, and combination products.
We are focused on transforming the treatment of disease and improve patient outcomes globally by bringing to bear meaningful data at scale, advanced analytics for drug development, and personalized patient care. We seek insights into patient and disease heterogeneity as well as clinical outcome from analysis of high- dimensionality datasets including longitudinal clinical trial and real-world datasets from large cohorts of patients, with deep characterization of individuals using techniques such as whole genome sequencing, transcriptomics, immune system profiling, anatomic and pathology imaging data, and digital approaches to continuous monitoring. This effort includes building capabilities for data and insight sharing; applying advanced analytics to identify novel targets and biomarkers to increase R&D productivity; identifying new methods for characterizing disease states and quantifying disease activity; generating insights to fundamentally change the drug development paradigm; and shaping the internal and external environment to enable value recognition from these insights.
We partner across the company with other Digital Health groups to advance digital health solutions which include hardware, software, applications, tools, and platforms to enable development of our therapies as well as more personalized care of patients across a range of therapeutic areas. We will also focus on the validation, scaling, and productization of our digital health platform, tools, capabilities, and products; along with late-stage development of novel digital biomarkers and endpoints, including the architecture, design, conduct, and analysis of analytical validation, clinical validation, and clinical utility studies to meet clinical and regulatory requirements, as appropriate.
Deliver the next generation in digital health with a focus on a specific therapeutic area such as Oncology, Ophthalmology or Neuroscience with flexibility to rotate on/off projects as business needs require.
