What We Are About:
Health 2.0 Advisors scans, analyzes, and catalyzes the adoption of innovation in traditional and non-traditional healthcare markets.
While the innovation we focus on always has a technology (and data) component to it, the questions we are asked to address typically focus on possibilities of /implications for new business models, eco-system changes, new patient engagement models, analytics, mobile, etc.
Health 2.0 Advisors prides itself on the unique data, intelligence, and networks that it uses to help companies navigate the rapidly evolving healthcare landscape.
Our team has depth in strategy consulting, entrepreneurship, and a range of industries (from pharmaceuticals to consumer goods and investing), but lives and breathes healthcare innovation and the strategic, operational, and other aspects of the ongoing healthcare transformation. As a result, our clients recognize and value that when we work with you, we start with a level of knowledge and insight that others can only hope to reach when they finish working with you.
