Early diagnosis can make all the difference to the lives of people with heart failure and other forms of cardiovascular disease

Many public health campaigns focus on the importance of identifying and acting on the symptoms of major cardiovascular disease (CVD) events, such as heart attacks and strokes, as quickly as possible.

Addressing new expectations for the future of health

The past few years have seen a seismic shift in the entire healthcare landscape. The COVID-19 crisis required a new level of “always-on” and “right now” innovation to enable care to be delivered to the front lines, to all patients, and across geographies. As COVID-19 evolves from an acute crisis to a chronic issue with unpredictable ebbs and flows, the hyper-focused approach to innovation is more important than ever. The world now knows what we can do, even when conditions are less than optimal. Our focus on helping patients by getting the best evidence, tools, and support to clinicians demonstrated the power of collaboration, imagination and dedication. Moving forward, patients and healthcare partners will accept nothing less than that level of commitment to transform the future of health forever.
