- Medical Communications
- Patient & Brand Communications
- Value, Informatics and Evidence (VIE)
Having started in 2011 with just 4 people sharing a unified idea, OPEN Health have seen rapid growth since then mostly owing to the high quality of work they have produced for the hundreds of clients they work with.
