Monitoring IP and Competition for a Global Healthcare Company


A global healthcare company wanted to monitor its competitors and the latest technologies in the consumer healthcare domain. Evalueserve created a continuous monitoring program for the healthcare company, providing monthly patent monitoring and quarterly in-depth market reports with strategic insights and innovation news.

The continuous monitoring program improved the client’s intellectual property awareness, fueling a more robust innovation strategy. The monitoring helped the client keep up with the latest trends and technologies and better understand its positioning in the consumer healthcare space.

The Challenge

A global healthcare company tried to monitor competitors and emerging technologies in the consumer healthcare space internally. It became apparent they were not equipped to monitor all the data and information out there. The healthcare company asked Evalueserve to compile information from different databases and deliver digests of the most important news and developments.
