  • Created global launch strategy within rapid molecular infectious disease testing which clearly identified/rated key competitors, determined key value drivers, optimal platform and assay menus, and presented executives with adoption/revenues for key global and emerging markets
  • Developed a strategy for the optimal uptake of a non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) companion diagnostic and service lab through the development of key marketing messages and an actionable strategy for optimal product offerings to maximize utilization and revenues

Health Economics & Medical Communications:
  • Directed EHR analysis of ICU patients diagnosed with sepsis to support our client’s monitoring equipment through generation of predicted probability of clinical outcomes against exposure; analysis presented at international intensive care meeting
  • Created a budget impact model (BIM) within the diabetes space to articulate the value to stakeholders of a diagnostic test with improved accuracy and precision
  • Guided development of two economic models to support ready-to-use products with hospital stakeholders which provided simple and flexible tools for representatives to initiate conversations, with flexibility to cover only topics of concern to stakeholders within the time available
