HHE Perspectives on Hospital and Industry Partnerships - Page 3

Foreword from Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices A t Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices (JJMD), we understand the pressure hospitals and healthcare providers are under to do more with less. For instance, in the UK, treating a growing and ageing population means that pressures on the health service are greater than they have ever been. According to the document ‘Next Steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View’ 1 , the NHS will be taking further action to ensure that they can deliver more benefit for patients from every pound of its budget, recognising that there are still opportunities to do better. Solving starts with listening. We believe that by understanding the challenges our customers are facing, it will allow us to co- create tailored solutions that work for them. This is why we are delighted to partner with Hospital Healthcare Europe (HHE) to support the delivery of this report, which enables us to hear directly from the people who are leading healthcare systems across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. Their opinions matter to us, and will help us shape our approach to make sure we are adding value to our customers – as their trusted partner. 1.
