LavoieHealthScience Launches Strategic Communications Solutions for Emerging Health and Science Innovations

…New Practice Segment Addresses Current Market Conditions

BOSTON & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LaVoieHealthScience (LHS) announced today the launch of its Emerging Health Convergence Practice focused on providing right-sized, integrated investor and public relations strategy and execution as well as digital communications solutions to companies dedicated to innovating, thriving amid current market uncertainty, and focused on leapfrogging the standard of patient care. The LHS Emerging Convergence Practice focuses on companies in drug development and screening, digital therapeutics, customized treatments and intervention, decision support, prevention, and early disease detection.

Since 2001, LaVoieHealthScience has provided full-service global health and science-based companies with strategic consulting and integrated communications programs in investor relations, public relations, corporate communications, and marketing, including digital solutions. LHS specializes in helping clients build value for their companies and products through understanding the complex business of health and science markets.

“We recognize the need to provide a unique set of services to companies focused on the future of biopharma and medtech that are right sized to fit these companies’ unique communications needs in the current market,” said Donna L. LaVoie, President and CEO of LaVoieHealthScience. “With a strong history in health and science innovation communications services, we are re-imagining our business model to fit the needs of companies without the resources and expertise to obtain share of voice and remain competitive for access to capital, customers, medical audiences, and talent.

LHS will provide these services under a different services model than the current LHS Health Commercial Practice which works with companies and brands that are preparing for commercial launch, FDA approval, and beyond.” LHS Health Commercial Practice provides elevated services with dedicated teams in investor and media relations, digital, medical audience-based solutions, market shaping, and enhanced investor communications services to support in-house teams in growth mode.

Companies well suited for The LHS Emerging Health Convergence Practice are pre-revenue, venture-backed, or small cap public companies in early clinical development up to Phase 2 or equivalent.

LHS’ Three-Tiered package provides the ability to select the services based on company priorities and budget. The three tiers provide a sliding scale of services for emerging health companies based on where they are in their lifecycle.
