We know for a fact that…


Adherence to long-term therapy for chronic illnesses in developed countries averages *


More than 75% of all patients expect to use digital services in the future **

Health and Biomedical Sciences budget is approximately 20% of the overall RIE2020 budget of S$19B ***

How can we address these challenges together?

R&D plays a very important part for innovation support and development.

This new innovation model can be summarised by the 4Ps of the innovative-value based:



With a strong customer centric approach (patient and HCPs).



A great illustration is the development of Augmented Reality as a key promoting technology to empower patients and HCPs. The usage of smart cities and digital data is also part of constant innovation.



Creation of Patient Support Programme including mobile applications to facilitate healthy lifestyle behaviours and disease management. Diagnostic is also essential for preventive aspects.



Through the leverage of social media and mobile applications.


Innovation and R&D are key to all stakeholders including healthcare providers, patients, payers, pharmaceutical industries providing better benefits.

Interview with David Picard, Chief Executive Officer, Moleac

How would you define Innovation?

Innovation is what changes the paradigm for patients. Delivering a solution which will improve patients’ health, by addressing an unmet need or enhancing the standard of care for a given disease.

An example of disruptive innovation in healthcare?


After a Stroke, patients with disabilities have very few treatment options but rehabilitation and certain stimulation techniques. We have identified in traditional Chinese medicine, a route to develop a new pharmaceutical treatment. As such we propose an innovative pharmacological treatment to assist post stroke recovery. This was an unmet therapeutic need until then. Clinical trials data show that after 3-month treatment, patients have an average 50% more chances to achieve independence at 6 month vs the placebo group.

Why is innovation essential to healthcare?


As we live longer, we need new set of diseases and health issue requiring new attentions. Innovation in Healthcare is therefore key to keep improving people’s lives.
