How we do it

At the heart of what we do is always the question: What does the future of health look like, and how to get ready for it?

To answer this question, we continuously scan the environment and look for signals of change:

We monitor the
  • regulatory landscape
  • start-up landscape
  • pharma landscape
  • tech landscape

We interview
  • patients
  • doctors
  • caregivers
  • futurists

We look at
  • innovations
  • data and insights
  • new business models
  • consumer trends

This helps us to curate our framework of trends based on qualitative and quantitative evidence, to build our internal library of innovations and early signals, and to anticipate and brainstorm ‘what if?’ questions.

Working with trends and foresight required a mix of creativity and analytics. At Think Next, we love data, to help us evidence the trends we’re talking about.

How do people manage their health? How ready are they to embrace emerging technologies in health? Where do they look for health information?

All answered in the Patient Trendscoping research.
