Culture

Making a Difference, Collaboration, Trust


Letter from Our Founder

Digital innovation is more than just what’s shiny and new. For innovation to matter, it has to deliver real commercial impact and must improve health outcomes. Digital innovation needs to be rooted in research and analysis, business rationale and strategic rigor. Our clients trust that our objectivity, focus and experience will shape the right strategy that will work in the real world.

Realizing meaningful and measurable digital innovation is hard in any industry, but especially so in life sciences. Achieving goals is as much about designing and recommending the right strategies as it is positioning solutions and navigating organizational and healthcare ecosystems.

Hard as it may be, we love it. We love that our clients trust us to tackle it, year after year, challenge after challenge. We love that it gives us the opportunity to work with some of the smartest people on the planet. And we love that it presents us with the opportunity to have a positive impact on patient health outcomes.

Paul Ivans
Founder & CEO
