Together, we can create a world
where people with diseases don’t
have to find therapies…
Therapies will find them.
At HVH, we empower healthcare companies by finding patients suffering from disease, before they are diagnosed.
HVH is shortening the time to diagnosis through the use of a proven and validated methodology to find diagnosed patients,
prospective therapy candidates, undiagnosed patients and ideal candidates for clinical trials so that innovative therapies
find the patients who desperately need them.
Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of problem solvers and industry experts in medical diagnostics, healthcare information
and advanced analytics bringing a unique and differentiated approach to connecting patients and therapies.
