Healthcare and Life Sciences

Beacon’s Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice supports Fortune 500 companies in meeting growth objectives across five primary industry segments:

  • Consumer/OTC
  • Diagnostics
  • Health IT and Informatics
  • Medical Device
  • Pharmaceuticals and Biotech

In line with Beacon’s other practice areas, the Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice focuses exclusively on growth projects. Clients across this practice are executives responsible for guiding the design, development, distribution, and sale of medical products. As a result, Beacon’s project work ranges from highly strategic engagements—whitespace and adjacent market assessments, L&A support, pipeline and portfolio optimization, business strategy and planning—to tactically focused studies such as commercialization of new offerings, go-to-market, commercial operations, pricing/reimbursements, value proposition assessments, regulatory analyses, and competitive strategy analyses.

Beacon studies span a variety of market stakeholders or care-settings including the largest IDNs, community hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, long-term care facilities, offices and clinics. We also regularly study clinical research organizations, the reimbursement community (private and public), and a number of other specialty customers. Typically Beacon studies rely on direct inputs from KOLs, thought leaders, association sources, and all levels of the customer value-chain. We typical engage customer sources ranging from the technology user (often a surgeon, nurse or other clinician) to other decision-makers and influencers such as C-Suite, materials management, risk management, surgical services, and other key stakeholders. In all studies, Beacon’s approach is tailored to meet the specific engagement objectives.

Approximately 50% of Beacon’s Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice projects are focused on geographic markets outside of the US. Europe, Latin and South America, and Asia Pacific are all regions of expertise for Beacon. Beacon’s team possesses native language expertise in most major markets.

Regardless of geography or study objective, Beacon recognizes there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to achieving growth and combatting industry-wide challenges. Our strategic and tactical recommendations help clients leverage their specific strengths to meet the changing needs of the market. Our tailored approach includes in-depth research and analysis used to rapidly immerse ourselves in our client’s core business area; we use this up-to-date market information as a foundation for providing calculated and actionable implications and recommendations. Critical to our success are both the pace of our projects—typical projects are 6-10 weeks in length—and regular reviews of data and recommendations to ensure achievable outputs.
