Our innovation leadership

<p>Our unique combination of strengths set us apart and enable us to actively shape the transformation of healthcare:&nbsp;</p><ul><li><strong>Patient twinning:</strong> We expand precision medicine with utmost personalization of diagnosis, therapy selection, aftercare, and managing health. This helps us understand the patient as completely as possible.&nbsp;</li><li><strong>Precision therapy:&nbsp;</strong>We address the most prevalent diseases with intelligent and image-guided treatment.</li><li><strong>Digital, Data &amp; AI:</strong> We drive digitalization by leveraging digital, data, and artificial intelligence (AI) and advancing providers’ operations with technology-enabled services</li></ul>
<p>We will continue to build on these strengths to help overcome the world’s most threatening diseases: cancer, cardiovascular and neurovascular diseases, improving the quality of outcomes, and enabling access to care.</p>
Around three billion people worldwide don’t have access to care. Many patients still suffer from diseases, which could already be treated successfully, simply because means of diagnoses and therapies are not yet affordable or accessible to them. We believe everyone should have access to high-quality and individualized care.
Our purpose
The reality is healthcare systems worldwide are facing a multitude of challenges: from limited funding, to shortage of qualified staff, to geographical barriers and limitation in local infrastructure, combined with aging population, the raising burden of chronic diseases, and increasing frequency of emergency disruptions accelerated by climate change.
<p>Even the most advanced technology is only as good as the number of people who have access to it. That's why innovation must be followed by scalability. This means solutions that can be tailored to the needs of our customers, the healthcare providers, and the local infrastructures, in which they are integrated.</p><p>What all healthcare systems have in common is their demand for high-value care – providing better outcomes with fewer resources. And while medtech is a global business, healthcare is inherently local.</p>
<p>We are currently present in more than 70 countries around the globe, making sure we are close to our customers. Our products, solutions, and services are customized to meet local market needs, benefiting from an unmatched global expertise.</p>
World map
<p>Built on a history of innovation we are a global player with a strong engineering heritage. Just one year after X-rays were discovered by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in 1895, we created our company’s first medical X-ray device.</p>
Our innovation legacy
<p><a class="cp-fab-text-highlight" href="Our%20archives">Our archives</a> still hold a letter from Roentgen dating back to 1896 praising the quality of tubes provided by Siemens.</p>

“Your tubes are really very good,” was the simple but significant praise penned on what is probably the most pleasing postcard in the company’s history.

We've been pushing the boundaries in medical technology for more than 125 years. Combined with the pioneering history of Varian our breakthroughs now span imaging, diagnostics, and cancer therapy. Here's a selection of them:
<p>Today, our engineers and researchers worldwide continue to build upon our legacy of innovation. Backed by an annual research and development investment of €1.5 billion and about 24,000 technical intellectual property rights, including more than 15,000 granted patents, we constantly bring breakthrough innovations to market – for the benefit of patients, medical professionals, and society.</p><p><br></p><p><a href="https://www.corporate.siemens-healthineers.com/how-we-innovate" data-ste-link-id="1655854826.cy/cp-text-image-dfc28d97:0932787002.neers.com/how-we-innovate:0950409621">Learn more about how we innovate</a></p>
