Through our research projects we strive to develop and promote user-centric and innovative solutions within the healthcare ecosystem, and stimulate in-depth debate on how best to enhance efficiency and value in the healthcare sector.

We partner with large, international research consortiums in major EU funded research and innovation projects, and we also participate in research and innovation projects within Europe at the national level. We have a unique understanding of healthcare systems and of the operations, processes, and treatment paths within the system. Our network consists of leading universities, research institutions, clinical professionals, healthcare service providers, and hospitals – and we are actively looking to increase our partnerships.

We have research and innovation expertise across a number of key areas – for example: real world evidence, advanced analytics, health technology assessments, medical devices regulation and certification, as well as expertise in creating decision support systems and reporting tools.
