Bridging Clinical Medicine and Diagnostic Science

EAC utilizes its deep expertise in diagnostics to bridge clinical medicine and diagnostic technology. On one side, we follow medicine to paint an accurate picture that we can provide to IVD companies of unmet medical needs or the possible impact of a new technology. On the other side, we translate the possible medical advantages and performance impact of new technologies to clinicians.

EAC is a strategic healthcare consulting company that provides business development and research services to technology developers in both the in vitro and in vivo domains, as well as to life science enterprises and pharmaceutical companies.

In our 30 years of operation, we have delivered over 1400 projects to 160 client companies serving the US, Europe, Japan, China, Brazil, and other markets of the world. We have expertise across the spectrum of diagnostic technologies, disease and wellness states, and healthcare delivery settings in both human and animal health.

Our clients tell us we are fast, nimble, and easy to work with. We know their language and their environment. They get what they ask for and they have confidence in the answers.


Our Work

We help companies make better decisions because we deliver unique insights on the core business activities that drive growth and profitability.  We help companies answer three key questions:

      What is the relevant business environment how it is changing?

      What steps can be taken to sustain and grow the business for the longest term?

      What specific actions are required to drive each product to reach its market potential?

EAC creates a custom answer for every project by evaluating:

  • Market sizes, trends, accessibility, and competitive landscapes
  • A product’s potential to address unmet medical needs as measured by accuracy, timeliness, ease of use, and cost effectiveness
  • New applications for existing or emerging technologies
  • Business models, market segments, and pricing strategies
  • Investment decisions in products, companies, and technologies.
