“Today we are using navify digital solutions, such as algorithms, and data science to deliver insights that are actionable in healthcare, building on three decades of software experience with diagnostics in laboratories,” said Moritz Hartmann, Head of Roche Information Solutions. “We are creating open digital ecosystems with labs, hospitals and medtech companies to bring the latest innovations faster to society to better serve patients, and to support clinicians in providing care for patients. These activities support our strategy to deliver insights that drive personalised care.” 

Together, navify brings new ways to:

  • Improve interoperability of digital infrastructure: Today limited abilities to seamlessly connect and share data costs healthcare systems an est. $30 billion in the US alone,1
  • Use advanced analytics to deliver operational excellence, improved workflows, and patient-centric ways of working: A worldwide shortage of up to 15 million healthcare workers is predicted by 2030:2 providers face increasing workloads with less resources – finding additional efficiencies is a priority,
  • Generate advanced medical insights that augment clinical decision support: 2 in 3 physicians are unsure if they are over- or underusing diagnostics, compared to their peers.3

Navify supports Roche’s 125-year commitment to deliver pioneering science that helps healthcare organisations improve patient health by advancing diagnostics, treatments and medical knowledge. It also aligns with Roche’s 10-year ambition to build a leading, profitable insights business.
