“We are delighted to welcome Celgene to the Health2047 ecosystem,” said Dr. Doug Given, Health2047’s Chief Executive. “Close collaboration among leaders in the technology and healthcare sectors is essential to driving meaningful change. Innovative visionaries like Celgene understand the pressing need to create solutions that are able to address large-scale issues like data liquidity and enable better clinical decisions, improve patient outcomes, and enhance value-based care.“
Given Celgene’s deep history and expertise in developing and commercializing life-changing medicines for cancers and inflammatory diseases, Health2047 is excited about collaborating with Celgene as it builds a new data transfer protocol tuned for healthcare.
