Bayer Grants4Apps) or support of digital health companies via external organizations (i.e., Matter + Novo, J&J + Plug & Play)

COMMERCIALIZE: Typically BD&L partnerships with digital health technology organizations that leverage the life science organization's commercialization capabilities to help bring the digital health technology to market (i.e., Novartis/Sandoz + Pear reSET-O)

COLLABORATE: Life Science collaboration with digital health companies to leverage their technologies to achieve brand and customer goals (i.e., Boehringer Ingelheim + Propeller Health)

CO-DEVELOP: Jointly developing a digital health solution, utilizing an existing platform/asset from a digital health company and the R&D capabilities from a life science organization; typically includes governmental regulatory approval (i.e., Otsuka + Proteus, Pear/Thrive + Novartis in Schizophrenia)
