Expertise

Generally, people seek out their own kind. Not us. We prefer to mix it up; it’s how we create integrated solutions. What sets us apart is our ability to blend the scientific rigor of medical communications and clinical research experts with creativity and insightful analytics of a PR firm to deliver compelling communications solutions. We are committed to achieving meaningful results in an industry that impacts the lives of patients.

Our accomplished team provides expertise from molecule to market in medical communications, public relations, clinical trial services and market access communications. We deliver strategic counsel in these areas for pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, animal health and functional foods companies, proactively identifying and overcoming any challenges as needed to ensure our clients’ success.

On behalf of our clients, we devise strategic and impactful real-world stakeholder engagement programs that generate data, demonstrate value, and support patient access to innovative medicines and devices. We support our clients in three core ways. Firstly, we offer expertise in real-world data generation at all stages of the development cycle, from early landscape analyses or stakeholder surveys to establish unmet need through to designing and helping execute health economic and outcomes research (HEOR) studies. Secondly, we also help our clients articulate the value of their products, developing compelling value narratives and communications, underpinned by our deep understanding of key stakeholder beliefs and behaviors. Thirdly, we work with market access teams in the UK, Europe, and US to develop compelling value stories for our clients’ products and devise strategies to enhance access through governmental affairs and public policy.

“Bringing new ideas and fresh thinking to our clients is what keeps our work exciting.”

Clinical Trial Services

tools icon - Clinical Trial Services Expertise
From trial start to finish, we elevate each communication touchpoint for successful trial completion. We know the business of clinical trials; yet, more importantly, the art of human connection. We care about breaking down complex science into digestible formats to empower and educate site staff and patients throughout the clinical trial journey. Conducting sound scientific research is challenging, both at the site and patient level. We ease the burden by applying relevant insights to deliver innovative approaches that address recruitment and retention challenges, unique to each trial.
