Analyse - Coordinate - Communicate

The world is shrinking and healthcare complexities are increasing: Anna Dé, with my Healthcare Policy Consultancy, can help you to navigate this environment. 

Healthcare systems are facing huge challenges from an ageing population, the rise in chronic diseases and healthcare budget constraints. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission substantially affected health services worldwide. 

At the same time, rapidly advancing science is leading us into a new era of innovation from advances in drug discovery, vaccines, genetics, diagnostics, developments in digital health to the creation of personalised treatments to improve patient outcomes. However, the timeframe within which some innovative technologies reach the patient can be very long.

I can help speed up the process by helping to analyse, coordinate and communicate clear policy asks to stakeholders.

About Our Founder

In my 21 years’ experience of international consultancy, I have had the privilege and honour of supporting clients delivering tangible policy change and making a real difference to patients. With an international mindset, and consultancy experience working in both Brussels and London, I know the opportunities and challenges of creating and delivering multinational healthcare strategies and campaigns.

Ways of Working

Depending on the nature of the project, we can work as an independent consultancy, alongside your existing team, or in close collaboration with other consultants in our network. Many clients seem to like this way of working in terms of creating a ‘best team’ approach. This is particularly useful for projects that involve different skill sets and cross multiple geographies. We work closely with other consultants across Europe and beyond.

What Others Say...

“In my experience, Anna Dé has strategic insights and communication skills to be a tremendous asset to any healthcare organisation. 

Anna supported the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) and partner organisations (coming together to form the EU Health Coalition) ahead of the EU Health Summit in November 2018 by helping to put together recommendations for a shared vision for the future of health in Europe.

Anna is a great strategic partner and delivers actionable strategies for her clients. She is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her services.”

Case Studies

I supported the European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) in 2017 with an internal and external audit exercise to help shape ECCO’s communication activities and give steer on its overall future direction. I also helped to ensure that we got the right stakeholder participation, in particular from policymakers and healthcare professionals for the ECCO 2018 European Cancer Summit, which was held on 7-9 September 2018 in Vienna.

As part of the Embracing Carers initiative, I managed an international team of consultants to compile a comprehensive worldwide overview of carer conditions.

The Global State of Care report examines the ways that individual countries and governments are beginning to support unpaid carers while highlighting the areas in which more support is needed.

In 2017 it was a great honour and privilege to work with Stefan Gijssels on the analysis of the external environment for the European Patients’ Forum (EPF), including: economic factors, political factors, including health and social policy developments, technological/ scientific factors and socio-cultural factors. This document was prepared to inform the revision of EPF’s Strategic Plan 2014-2020.

I provided support ahead of and at the New NHS Alliance 2018 Partnership Summit, which was a resounding success.

New NHS Alliance is a movement of professionals and local people working as equal partners to address and reduce health inequalities.
