OPEN Health is moving to one brand to create a world-class integrated services model 

Bethesda (MD, USA), Rotterdam (the Netherlands), London (United Kingdom) – April 27, 2021

Pharmerit, a global leader in Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) and Market Access, has undergone an extensive rebranding to fully integrate with OPEN Health. Since its inception in 2011, OPEN Health has expanded its expertise and global reach through mergers and organic growth to be at the forefront of the healthcare industry. It has brought together global experts from HEOR, Market Access, and medical communications, with digital at the heart of its services. OPEN Health provides unrivalled global healthcare specialist expertise to apply innovative approaches in research and communications with the purpose of improving patient outcomes and wellbeing.

“We are one of the few global agencies that can serve clients across the full product lifecycle,” commented Rob Barker, CEO of OPEN Health. “We are proud to partner with 38 of the top 40 biopharmaceutical and medical device companies, serving clients from Medical Affairs, HEOR, Market Access, and Commercial teams.”

As of April 2021, OPEN Health has moved to one brand to create a world-class integrated services model. Together, we are a global team of 750+ experts across the United States, Europe, United Kingdom, and Asia.

“I am excited to say that we have retained the very best of Pharmerit, which has supported so many clients for over 20 years. We are now uniting equivalent life science research and communications talents from around the world under the OPEN Health brand, which has a strong heritage. We will continue on our journey to deliver on our evidence and access promise with a new, dynamic, and fully integrated team of experts,” added Jeff Anderson, CEO of OPEN Health Evidence & Access.

Speaking of Pharmerit’s clients, the former co-founder of Pharmerit and current Chair of OPEN Health Evidence & Access, Marc Botteman, commented, “I am proud to say that our clients will find a vastly broadened set of capabilities under the OPEN Health brand, including the expansion of value and HEOR communication and writing, the addition of patient engagement capabilities to our patient-centered outcomes expertise, the inclusion of primary data collection capabilities, and extensive access to UK and European databases. This will allow us to combine our novel data analytics and machine learning expertise with deep commercial market access expertise across Europe.”

Over the past 12 months, OPEN Health has cemented its status as a leader in HEOR and medical communications. It has experienced 20% YTY growth, tallying 1400 customers in 90+ countries. This growth reflects the increasing need for HEOR to inform healthcare decisions and to engage with the healthcare community in innovative and personalized ways.
