At Amgen, we discover, develop and manufacture medicines to enable more moments in the lives of more people. Moments of joy, moments of friendship—moments of life. For moments like these, we innovate and we work—boldly, tirelessly and passionately to serve the ones that matter—patients.
We bring these moments forward by using the tools of modern science and biology to address the most serious diseases facing people. Our commitment to patients extends beyond delivering innovative medicines, to creating healthcare solutions for those we serve. It is also reflected in the following areas of focus:
Amgen invests heavily in research and development in search of innovative medicines and tools that may provide breakthrough solutions for medical needs that are currently unmet. We focus on medicines made using biotechnology, and we don’t settle for medicines that are only slightly better than current treatments. Our commitment to breakthrough medicines and our growing understanding of human genetics will soon make it possible to discover and deliver medicine to control hard-to-treat diseases. Through all of this, we seek to improve human health by not only treating disease after it strikes, but by helping to predict and prevent disease before it occurs.
Medicines and other forms of healthcare must be judged by the overall value they can provide to patients, the healthcare system and the broader society. For patients, value often comes down to relief from the physical burdens of diseases, along with the freedom to lead a longer, fuller, more active life. Healthcare systems see value in medicines that are truly effective and cost-effective, and society wants solutions that lower the cost of disease by helping people stay healthy longer. At Amgen, we are committed to showing how our medicines can meet these needs through:
Relief from the burden of disease includes more than physical wellness and cost savings. We understand that to you, as a patient, it includes doing things that matter to you and leading the life you had before your disease struck. It includes time, it includes laughter, it includes unforgettable moments. Our commitment to patient centered care gives us passion and purpose, and to us, being passionate about what we do means you can do more of what you are passionate about.
