We assist our clients by developing business plans, feasibility studies and financial forecasts; we provide valuable insights into market alliances by performing due diligence reviews, identifying potential partnerships and shaping important referral networks within both the healthcare community as well as in government agencies and regulatory bodies. 

Operationally we identify market opportunities, guide the development of marketing strategies, assist in the structuring of management teams, develop work flows and provide long-term advice in operations and governance.
