In tete-a-tete with the Founder and CEO Kelly Simpson-Angelini
Simpson Healthcare is disruptive and that makes it different. Tell us more about it.
We have long studied how disruptive innovation has changed industries across markets and we are hands-on in applying this novel new theory of disruption, to the healthcare field. We think differently about why scientific stories of therapies matter for patients, as we aim to ensure the delivery of precision medicine: the right patient receiving the right medicine at the right time. We drive forward new scientific innovations and therapies for our clients that will disruptively transform healthcare worldwide and lead the industry into the future. We are proud to stand united with our clients as we help them to improve the quality of life for patients who will benefit most from their therapies.
Simpson Healthcare has undergone a significant growth period with a rich heritage. On what grounds has the company expanded and what are the offerings over the years?
The Simpson Healthcare team listens and looks beyond next year and into the next decades to understand how the greater healthcare landscape works. We collaboratively develop new scientific communication methods and marketing platforms that best support our clients’ needs and position them to achieve the best possible outcomes for their therapeutic brands that are most impactful for patients. We have used our passion for healthcare and disruptive innovation to build and customize specialized service offerings that provide long-term value to our clients’ business and the healthcare field. Our work here has been launched with our top clients, and many others, who are disruptively transforming healthcare in the industry.
To expand our service offerings for our clients, Simpson Healthcare recently launched a new line of ‘Futuring’ work. During Futuring, we envision the potential best and worst futures without any reference to present day. Once the Futures have been imagined, the drivers to reach those futures are identified, which help to pinpoint opportunities to shape a “Desired Future,” or avoid impact from an “Undesirable Future.”
