M2 works closely with clients to research specific questions pertinent to their organization’s interests or to support a position. Depth of operations knowledge is what sets us apart from other policy firms. Our experience in the corporate world enables us to perform health policy research with an eye to each organization’s products, services and revenues.
Case Study – State-Based Policy
Support of state-based legislative efforts or policy-making can take a variety of forms. Comprehensive research projects have included:
- A regional state-by-state analysis of all relevant legislation and regulation, passed and proposed, on a single issue;
- A stakeholder analysis related to health care transformation;
- A summary of all bills proposed and passed in selected states across a five-year span on access and reimbursement.
In other cases, a client has requested a “leave-behind” with points of data relevant to a bill being considered. The “leave-behind” can be anything from a single piece of white paper with black text to a color tri-fold that is branded with the client’s name and logo.
Case Study – Competitive Analysis
A private equity firm with a portfolio of novel therapeutic products, including biologics, diagnostics and drug delivery, needed to present an overview of the private late stage development companies in the biopharmaceutical industry as it related to pre-money and post-money valuations over time. M2 provided consultation services and research based on its deep knowledge of the marketplace. M2 conducted a patent expiry analysis along with general productivity analysis of the industry based on loss of exclusivity timelines, as well as rates of change in filings for new chemical entities and new drug applications.
