About Us

We founded Axian because we believe that when it comes to patient safety, “ticking a box” isn’t enough. We want to help the pharmaceutical industry deliver better healthcare outcomes, and we do this by changing how information is provided to patients and HCPs.
We understand that each “stakeholder” and “end user” is a person with their own priorities and preferences, which need to be taken into account when designing any successful safety intervention.
We believe that data plays an important role when it comes to designing initiatives and reviewing their effectiveness. We understand the need for privacy and that this should be captured and handled in a safe and effective manner. We also believe any results or insights should be placed within a broader context, as it only forms part of the puzzle.
Synergy and collaboration are central to everything we do, and we hope to see this reflected in how the industry works with regulators, HCPs and patients.

Our Ethos

We have worked as a team to develop an ethos, which clearly defines how we work both together and with our clients, and also how we impact our communities and the environment.

  • Patient safety is at the heart of everything we do.
  • Together with our clients, we look to push the boundaries, helping to improve healthcare systems and patients’ lives around the globe.

Working with clients

  • Our client relationships are based upon mutual trust and respect – we work together to innovate and test our ideas.
  • We are fun and approachable, but we deliver serious results. We challenge our clients and enjoy being challenged by them too!
  • We feel we’ve been successful when our clients consider us part of their team.

Working together

  • As a team we are open, honest and respectful.
  • We are all different, and everybody has a valid opinion and a contribution to make, both to the team and our clients.
  • We step up and take on responsibility.
  • We celebrate the highs and navigate the lows together.
