Why we invested in Kaiku Health
Debiopharm develops for patients, and this slogan means we go beyond the pill. We see that the future of patient care has to be a holistic experience, from diagnosis to treatment to monitoring and everything in between. Kaiku Health helps patients stay looked after and cared for in their daily lives, not just when they visit the doctor. At the same time, the RWD from patients provides invaluable information about treatment outcomes and quality of life of patients. This helps us become a better drug developer.
