Why cooperate with patients?

Including patient expertise during the entire product life-cycle is key for truly patient-focused innovative products and services. It is instrumental in a successful business. However, how can this be translated into practice? That’s exactly where admedicum comes in.



We help prepare your organization and shape the patient interactions in a way that creates sustainable value for both patients and your business.

We provide down to earth day-to-day patient-centric business solutions. Together with our clients from the industry, we make patient-industry collaboration happen. We act as advisors, designers, and enablers to build trustworthy and effective relationships between patients and the industry. We help to merge the beneficial impact for patients and value-for-money for the industry.

Ana Mingorance, Chief Development Officer LouLou Foundation, London, UK

The CDKL5 Research & Family conference, which Philipp was instrumental with in shaping the agenda, was an exceptionally great meeting! I had a chance to talk to many of the families and I know they appreciated these days and loved how much opportunity they had to participate and tell their stories and help shape the field and advance it. This was truly the first patient-centric meeting I’ve ever attended, and that was very much thanks to Philipp‘s vision.


Undisclosed pharma participant on the same conference: „You and Carol-Anne organized the best disease-focused family meeting I ever attended.  The interaction and co-collaboration amongst all constituents was extremely beneficial to everyone in attendance.  I especially appreciated hearing directly from the caregivers their needs and wants for clinical trials and new medications.“
