Advancing digital and data-led approaches to population health 

The Novartis Foundation focuses on the world’s most pressing health challenges: cardiovascular disease and health inequity. We take a population health approach, which means widening the lens from a narrow focus on healthcare delivery to a panoramic vision of improving health in the population at large. Our population health approach brings together disconnected data to create insights that help authorities understand the root causes of unequal health outcomes and find the best ways and best partners to remediate those. This empowers governments to re-engineer reactive care systems into proactive, predictive and preventive health systems that keep people healthy.
