Putting Patients First
Our commitment to transform global health has always gone hand in hand with our commitment to advance our mission of helping patients live longer and healthier lives. To that end, we recognize that we must broaden how we define success beyond the development of transformative medicines and vaccines. A standard of success not just predicated on effectively treating and/or preventing disease, but on informing and educating patients, so they can have more empowered conversations with their healthcare providers. That is the essence of our putting patients first philosophy. A philosophy that holistically examines the patient experience, consistently assessing ways we can use innovation to add value, even if it means going beyond the pill and the vial. Pfizer’s definition of success will now and always be focused on helping patients maximize their life’s potential.
As a company, our focus has always been to educate and inform patients so they can play a more active role in the decisions affecting their health. We are deepening that commitment by engaging patients in a true culture of partnership that involves patient-focused insights and integrated decision-making. By actively listening to the voice of the patient and putting their needs and outcomes at the center of how we discover, develop and deliver new medicines and vaccines, we truly believe we have the power to transform global health one patient at a time.
By improving connectivity, information gathering and transparency, we are able to deepen our understanding of the impact that our decisions as a company has on the patient, their families, friends and the wider community. Throughout the entire product development process, we cultivate patient involvement to help empower them to take on a more active role in their care as we build, revise and finalize patient-focused solutions.
At Pfizer, we build environments that enable the brightest and most innovative minds to pursue their passion for improving lives. We make it our priority to discover, develop, and deliver first-in-class medicines, vaccines and over-the-counter products that will provide value to people across the full spectrum of their health needs — from prevention to treatment to wellness.
Our commitment to better understanding patients and their families must involve the organizations and advocacy groups that represent their interests every day. These special perspectives provide invaluable information that will be essential to how we drive the necessary innovation to make a measurable impact in patients’ lives.
For patients, with patients.
