Pipeline Analysis

Our Pipeline Analysis offers important and immediate intelligence about the future of health technology within a disease or condition. Underpinned by robust horizon scanning methodology, at the core of our pipeline analysis are an analysis of trends in clinical development that allows for the examination of both their cause and potential impact on healthcare systems. Our methods are reproducible and address clinically relevant questions. Our outputs can be used to steer development reports, inform gaps in ongoing research, address unmet needs, and prepare healthcare systems for upcoming waves of technological innovation.
