Understanding healthcare policy and working in partnership with patients, governments, parliaments, and regulators to improve patient outcomes
The nexus of public policy, government institutions, patients and industry has never been more vital to ensuring that healthcare is allocated according to the greatest societal need, that governments support life science companies and that patients are at the heart of decision-making.
At Aurora we help clients understand this interwoven environment with deep insights and develop strategies with impact that deliver for patients, healthcare authorities and industry alike.
Political advocacy and corporate engagement with governments
We help clients to get to the right people that matter to understand and influence policy, campaign with purpose and successfully engage with public institutions.
Patient advocacy strategy
We bring clarity to patient engagement and advocacy, helping to bring the patient voice into the heart of companies, driving improved drug development and better outcomes for patients.
Policy analysis, market access pathways and reimbursement strategy
Whether it is understanding the HTA process, forging new reimbursement pathways with public institutions or making sure value propositions are aligned to policy priorities, we have the expertise for clients to develop commercial launch strategies with confidence.
