Driving positive change for patients
Our focus on the fields of oncology, rare disease and neuroscience enables us to develop an ever-greater understanding of patients’ needs and experiences. Our objective is to take patient-centricity to the next level by impacting medical care and patient outcomes in our therapeutic areas, notably by building a deep understanding of the patient journey. Patient insights are essential to challenge the status quo, while collaboration with healthcare systems can bring about advancements for patients around the world.
Our action to better support Patients is focused on three areas:
- Delivering a truly patient-centred experience
- Enabling access to good health
- Driving innovation
Patients are at the heart of everything we do at Ipsen. It is their experiences, insights and passion that drives us, and keeps us focused on what matters most: shaping positive change that can help people across the world to live better, longer lives.
How we support patients across the world
At Ipsen we strive to create experiences and build innovation based on what patients value most. Examples of how we live this in practice include:
Since 1983 under the aegis of the Fondation de France, Fondation Ipsen has been dedicated to increasing scientific knowledge and patient research. In 2021, through its relationships with patient organizations, its publishing enterprise, and international scientific collaborators, the Fondation interacted directly with more than 22 million people in 100 countries. The Fondation’s latest strategic focus, “Rare But Not Alone,” was launched in 2020.
Ipsen partners with Access Accelerated, a not-for-profit that works in communities that lack sufficient access to healthcare to address non-communicable diseases.
Keeping language simple
To help patients understand what our clinical studies involve, we develop lay-friendly language summaries

SUPPORTING PATIENT ORGANIZATIONS

Using real-world data for better solutions for patients
Innovation to improve patient outcomes doesn’t always resemble the scenes in the movies where the brilliant scientist makes a breakthrough alone in the lab. Sometimes it takes the form of Artificial Intelligence analyzing enormous quantities of data. Som
