To get the most out of healthcare solutions, we must better understand the empowered person living with a condition and how that person proactively manages that condition in their daily life.

Kantar Health's HERO Framework™ provides you with unparalleled insight into the many faces of today's diverse healthcare consumers. Short for Healthcare Ecosystem and Real-world Outcomes, our HERO Framework™ demonstrates our deep understanding of the healthcare ecosystem and the healthcare consumer as an individual. Our research philosophy highlights the need to address behavior from the perspective of the individual, as well as from a socio-cultural and environmental context.

No other healthcare partner provides such a rich view of healthcare consumers and their behaviors and motivations. That means better business decisions for you and better lives for people everywhere.
