Defined Health is a leading business development strategy consulting firm. We’ve been assisting clients in the pharmaceutical, biotech and healthcare investment industries for more than 25 years.

  • Defined Health has three core lines of business, each focused on helping companies build and strengthen development-stage assets; compounds, portfolios and platforms
  • A key differentiator is the firm’s focus on defining value for early stage compounds as “proof of relevance” (“PoR”), looking beyond mechanistic proof-of-concept to demonstrate clear potential for clinical differentiation and indisputable commercial value
  • Defined Health’s position of trust can be leveraged for the long term, across the continuum of clinical development and “go to” market services
