Medicine today primarily focuses on treating disease – but in the future, it will increasingly be able to prevent disease. We are shaping a healthcare system that is becoming more personalized, more precise, more preventative, and more supportive. Right now, creative minds around the world are generating outstanding ideas for our future. And together with our partners, we are transforming those ideas into innovations that serve healthcare professionals and make optimal care accessible to everyone.

It’s not just about reinventing technology – it’s also about making it accessible
We don’t have the luxury of just hitting refresh when we have an error. An error could mean redrawing a pediatric blood sample or delaying a critical medical decision in an emergency room. Everyone in the diagnostics business understands that improving the speed and reliability of in vitro diagnostics doesn’t just help improve the profits of labs; it helps save lives.Benjamin Pollack, Technology Leader for Machine Vision at Siemens Healthineers
