Mag. Andreas Steiner Group CEO AOP Health Group

From its inception AOP Health's culture is shaped by the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder. We are proud to be a company that encourages employees to come up with new ideas and to show ownership and initiative every day. To help neglected patients with rare diseases is our key motivator. Through close interaction with the scientific community, care givers and partners we aim to provide therapies and help patients beyond just providing drugs.

The future

Thanks to our advancements in the field of therapies, an increasing number of patients survive their disease or are able to live with it for a longer period of time. In the next few decades, personalized medicine, individual treatment opportunities will emerge more and more as the standard in AOP Health’s therapy concepts as well.

Novel technologies such as next-generation sequencing (NGS) will play an equally crucial role as the increasing quantities of big data and conclusions derived from the daily lives of patients also beyond the strictly regulated conditions of clinical trials, e.g. real-world evidence.

Furthermore, the increasing health competence, health literacy of patients and their family members will also determine the future of pharma and health care sector.
