The Dawning of a Well-Care Era

Discover how we’re moving from sick-care to well-care

When did healthcare become about treating sickness rather than maintaining health? Now is the time to ensure we aren’t just making people better, but helping them stay well. At Janssen EMEA, we’re on a mission: to move from an era of sick-care to well-care. We want to see a future of disease prevention rather than intervention, a future where disease is a thing of the past, and ultimately a world where patients are people with their health treated as a whole.

Kris Sterkens

Company Group Chairman Janssen EMEA & Managing Director Janssen Pharmaceutica

An advocate for embracing change, Kris has led the region’s response to the increasing digitalisation of healthcare. Here he talks about the importance of connecting people and seeing healthcare not as a cost but as an investment. The future is unparalleled, he argues, in terms of what benefits it can bring, and if we’re able to keep society healthy by being proactive and managing our health ourselves, we will not only be happier and healthier but also have a new well-care system fit for the 21st Century.

Andreas Gerber

Managing Director Germany, Janssen EMEA

As an advocate for the digitization of healthcare, Andreas understands the enormous potential that health data has to sustainably improve healthcare for all. However, he is also aware that people's health data is a highly personal asset that needs special protection. That is why he has long advocated for transparent and binding rules on how this data is collected and stored and what it can be used for and by whom. Andreas wants to help people understand that they can trust that their data will be appropriately collected, stored and used for their benefit. Andreas understands that, if used properly, data can help advance medical progress and ultimately benefit society.
