Case Studies

Business Plan For Seed Stage Telemedicine Company

Two leading Silicon Valley venture capital funds were incubating a seed stage telemedicine company that proposed to leverage nurse practitioners as an alternative for certain primary care conditions. The investors sought out Health Business Group to assist in understanding the market landscape and segmenting prospective customers.

Enterprise Pricing Strategy For Health It Vendor

A health information technology company had achieved strong market penetration with hospitals, health systems and individual healthcare professionals. However, advances in technology and computer networks, consolidation of the provider market, and the company’s lack of a comprehensive pricing strategy had created challenges.

Acquisition/diversification strategy for sales and marketing services company

The client began as a contract sales organization serving large pharmaceutical companies. Market dynamics had been deteriorating as the pharmaceutical industry as a whole began to reduce the size of its sales force and as large customers started negotiating more aggressively.
