What you should know:

– Sanofi launched its first digital accelerator to better harness data and artificial intelligence to develop solutions that address unmet patient needs.

– The Digital Accelerator team is developing an integrated platform and data solution to improve awareness of atopic dermatitis and available treatment options among patients and healthcare professionals.

Focus on the digital accelerator

The digital accelerator is the next step in Sanofi’s ongoing digital transformation, which has led to the hiring of 300 new employees across the company’s digital, data and cybersecurity teams over the past 18 months. Additionally, Sanofi is partnering with Women in Tech® to close the gender gap in digital health.

The digital accelerator will first focus on the unmet needs of patients with atopic dermatitis in France, Italy and Spain. The team is developing an integrated platform and data solution to better interact with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and improve awareness for them and their patients about the disease and available treatment options.

“Sanofi’s digital transformation is driven by business and cultural change as much as technology. The digital accelerator will help us democratize the use of data, develop an agile mindset across the company, and accelerate innovation for patients and healthcare professionals at high speed and scale. . Our investment in the Digital Accelerator is further demonstration of our commitment to transforming the practice of medicine and delivering better patient outcomes,” said Arnaud Robert, Executive Vice President and Chief Digital Officer at Sanofi.
