Specialist teams

Health economists

We have an enduring reputation for producing academically robust, yet pragmatic and transparent health economic models.

Our specialist health economic modellers develop a wide range of tools, including decision-tree models, Markov models, patient-level simulations and highly efficient functionality for full deterministic and probabilistic sensitivity analyses.

Our health economics team has developed cost-effectiveness and budget impact models for many of the world’s leading pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

Medical writers

All educated to PhD level, DRG Abacus’ medical writers are experienced across the whole portfolio of market access materials, from technical HTA dossiers to message-driven PowerPoint presentations. Our team comprises experts in a large variety of disease areas, and with different product types (from drugs to devices).

Our medical writers can create an evidence-based communication tailored to meet your specific requirements. We adhere to the highest ethical and scientific standards and have keen attention-to-detail. We develop communication materials that are technically robust, expertly written and, coupled with our in-house creative design team, presented with impact and flair. We have the experience and knowledge to develop and present your evidence in the appropriate format and pitched at the right level for your intended audience and desired communication.

Systematic review analysts and statisticians

Systematic reviews are central to evidence-based medicine and increasingly inform healthcare decision making around the world. At DRG Abacus, we have extensive experience in all aspects of systematic review.

Our multi-disciplinary team of systematic review analysts, statisticians and medical writers has a proven track record in the design, conduct and communication of systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses. Attention-to-detail and accuracy underpin all that we do.

We use industry-standard techniques and approaches to ensure we minimise errors and get it ‘right first time’; to this end, we have developed customised systematic review software to manage our review data and ensure quality. All of our reviews conform to the current PRISMA guidelines.

Clinical outcomes assessment analysts

The clinical outcomes assessment team provides measurement development, evaluation, and outcomes strategy. Our team has a deep expertise in understanding, documenting and communicating the patient experience.

We help manufacturers demonstrate the burden and unmet need of a disease, select the most appropriate patient-centred outcomes to assess efficacy, safety and treatment satisfaction, and communicate these data to key decision makers.

The team has interviewed hundreds of patients, caregivers and clinicians to help our clients achieve regulatory and commercial success and gather vital evidence for communicating product benefit to the people that matter.

Creative designers

Our creative designers specialise in developing content specifically for the healthcare industry and are expert in delivering solutions of the highest quality and creativity for your market.

Whether you need print-based value communication literature, an iPad tool, an infographic, a training/presentation slide deck to convey your value story or to simplify complex statistical methods, we see design as a powerful problem-solving tool.

IT developers and programmers
