Whether it’s cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases or other serious health threats, prevention and early detection are key, and these depend on high quality diagnostics. These tools exist to prevent or at least limit the impact of life-threatening health conditions.
Today, diagnostics represents just 2% of all healthcare spending yet influences 70% of medical decision-making. Diagnostics go far beyond simply telling a doctor whether a patient has a certain disease or not.
Today, they are an integral part of decision-making along the entire continuum of a patient’s health or disease, enabling physicians to make full use of IVDs along the healthcare value chain.
Dia:logue on Diagnostics is a public awareness initiative by Roche Pakistan Limited (Diagnostics Division) to spark conversations around various diseases, amplify the true value of diagnostics and enable the best way to ensure equitable access to diagnostics across Pakistan.
Through this web platform, we also hope to leverage the expert opinions of leading voices in the healthcare ecosystem to help provide clarity to patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals and play a role in enabling personalized treatment, as well as optimizing care pathways.
