leadership, Health Outcomes Group has
always understood the necessity of having a global outlook on
problems and in providing innovation, practical solutions. We have worked in many
therapeutic areas in every continent of the world and in

Our current focus is on education
and providing information in a simple format that the
general public, as well as patients, can easily understand.
Simple measures of health outcomes should help guide
caregivers in treating patients. The same measures of
health outcomes also need to inform patients how well
treatment is achieving it's goals.
