About ClearView Healthcare Partners
ClearView is a boutique consulting firm in the life sciences strategy field. The company has enjoyed exponential growth since its founding in 2007, providing advice and insights across four main areas of focus: pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices, and diagnostics. The firm is now well-established, with a steady list of clients and constant demand for its services.
The firm’s core strength is the specificity of its field: the needs of life sciences companies are unique and can't be served by just any consultant. These complex questions require people who understand the medical and scientific issues involved and their intersection with the business world. ClearView’s founding partners recognized a gap in the market and decided to create a firm based on their deep experience and expertise in the field.
Trusted partners to the life sciences industry
ClearView's clients include a broad range of operating companies in the life sciences, from medical device and pharmaceutical companies to investors in the life sciences fields. Collectively, ClearView leads over 450 projects a year, providing advice and actionable recommendations to professionals in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and diagnostic fields. The company prefers to partner with clients for long-term relationships, which has contributed to significant year over year growth.
ClearView's overriding goal with every client is to partner with them to devise "actionable strategic insight" to drive growth. The company draws from its teams' business, life sciences, and content expertise to advise client decision-makers, like Senior Executives (e.g., CEO, CBO, CMO), New Product Planning (NPP) teams, Pricing and Market Access (P&MA) teams, and Strategic Marketing departments.
A clear vision
ClearView assembles its consulting teams with a mix of business, technical, and clinical skills in mind. But background isn't everything—new employees are hired as much for their communication and problem solving skills as they are for their field experience.
In addition to the smarts of staff members, ClearView also draws from a network of physicians, insurance providers, regulatory experts, patient advocacy groups, and other experts for feedback on ideas and when necessary, reality checks. The company prides itself on providing clients not just inventive solutions, but practical ones—strategies that won't fall apart in the face of clinical and commercial realities.
Committed to professional development
ClearView emphasizes professional development and leadership training as part of their offering to all employees. New hires experience a case-based training program that provides every employee with the foundational skills to succeed in the business environment. Long-term training provides the staff with opportunities to increase professional presence and poise, preparing individuals for success within and beyond ClearView. An internal seminar series allows for individuals to learn about broader healthcare topics in a collaborative and engaging fashion. Mentorship is emphasized from top to bottom, and consequently there is an open feedback environment. This focus on professional development has created an opportunity for entry-level staff to develop the necessary skills to advance within the organization, and has generated a strong sense of ClearView community.
Furthering that commitment, the firm also offers impactful internships for undergraduate students, as well opportunities for advanced degree candidates in the life sciences to get an in-depth look at the life of a strategy consultant in the field. Interns participate in and contribute to real ClearView projects so that they can get hands-on experience in life sciences consulting. The advanced degree program, Connect to ClearView, offers a three-day case immersion during which experienced ClearViewers lead participants through a mock engagement.
In response to the spread of COVID-19, ClearView mandated all employees work from home starting in March. Online tools have helped us to seamlessly transition to virtual project work and interview processes during this period, and while we look forward to our 2020 class joining us, we are monitoring the situation and will not ask employees or candidates to be in our physical offices until we believe it is safe to return.
