Evidence generation for digital health innovators.

We generate evidence to support adoption of your digital health technology.

We help you to demonstrate the value of your technology to payors, providers, and patients.

We work with a global network of clinicians, academics, regulators, and policymakers.

What we do

We partner with innovative businesses, health systems and care providers to support their journey to digital health success.

Our approach blends high standards of quality and academic robustness with the responsiveness and flexibility innovators need.


Evidence generation

Businesses need evidence to show that their products and services work. Health systems, providers and patients need to see value in the solutions they adopt.


We understand what evidence is required for digital solutions and know how to generate this evidence pragmatically.

Market insights

Healthcare is not the same everywhere. Different markets will have different regulations, technical infrastructure and clinical pathways.


We can help you understand and enter your target markets.

Capability building

Digital transformation is about people as much as technology. Advances in education technology can help learning at scale.

We can develop effective digital training programmes for your staff.

We are driven by what digital health innovators need (and we love a challenge). Even if what you require is not reflected above, please get in touch and we will try our best to help.


Our team has long-standing experience in digital health, developing and evaluating solutions, informing policy making, advising businesses and health systems and conducting research.


We have a unique mix of academic, clinical, managerial and consulting skills, which allows us to deliver practical insights with academic rigour and to manage highly complex projects.
