Under David's leadership, Health Outcomes Group has always understood the necessity of having a global outlook on problems and in providing innovation, practical solutions. We have worked in many therapeutic areas in every continent of the world and in more than 80 major languages.  During the past 26 years we have cultivated numerous global relationships that have grown and strengthened through participation in many projects. These relationships are part of the benefits you receive by working together with Health Outcomes Group.

Our current focus is on education and providing information in a simple format that the general public, as well as patients, can easily understand.  Simple measures of health outcomes should help guide caregivers in treating patients.  The same measures of health outcomes also need to inform patients how well treatment is achieving it's goals.
