About AbbVie

At AbbVie, we have the expertise of a proven pharmaceutical leader, as well as the focus and passion of an entrepreneurial innovator. The result is something rare in healthcare today—a global biopharmaceutical company that has the ability to discover and advance innovative therapies, while meeting the health needs of people around the globe.

 

Above all, the patient is at the center of everything we do. Our goal is to improve the quality of patients’ lives beyond the realms of medical treatment. To do so, we want to accumulate different ideas, concepts, and approaches on a single creative and innovative platform.

 

As an international and quality-driven pharmaceutical company, we have the capacity to cocreate the future of healthcare solutions. Together with patients, their families and friends, and other healthcare activists, we want to push the boundaries of the research of tomorrow.

What is the forum about and what do we want to achieve?

As a virtual meeting place, this forum helps participants communicate, share, and evaluate new ideas and solutions. AbbVie aspires to create a unique experience for patients, relatives, doctors, and anyone who is interested in improving the patient experience. The goal of each contest running on this platform is to motivate people to develop novel ideas for the healthcare products and services of the future in order to help patients live a better and more comfortable life. We encourage your participation and collaboration, and look forward to seeing your cocreated products and services that can be applied in real world.

 

Who do we need support from?

We hope to accomplish our goals by creating a community of patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, rehabilitation centers, researchers, innovators, and other creative minds. In short, any input from people in this groups—and beyond—is valuable to this initiative. It not only helps broaden the understanding of how may solve these healthcare problems, but may also trigger other community members to further develop their own ideas. This multidisciplinary approach can bring us to our final goal: better treatment for patients.
