To help advance patient and customer understanding of evolving products and treatments, AbbVie sponsors and collects patient outcome data related to the use of our products, and makes this data easily accessible to health care professionals, payers, regulators, and the public. We offer a wide range of trainings, meetings, conferences, and educational activities targeting multiple stakeholders to help keep our promise of having an impact on people's lives. We also engage in close public-private partnerships to help broaden health care access to critically needed testing and treatment services.
Complementing our partnerships to increase access and promote sustainability, AbbVie provides educational grants to support health care providers with training in key areas, such as reducing the lifetime cost of treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and improving patient education for kidney disease. We also support a specialty residency focused on studying and improving health care outcomes.
