SFC Group is an independent, full-service healthcare agency owned and helmed by Susan Flinn Cobian, who believes that going above and beyond is the only way to go. The agency’s “One Team, One Dream” approach aims to knock it out of the park for their clients each and every day, agency executives say. SFC Group is composed of a team of seasoned, award-winning healthcare pros who share a common dream: to consistently deliver strategic counsel, killer creative, and seamless execution. 

Not even a global pandemic could halt the positive momentum of Sound Healthcare Communications in 2020, according to the agency’s leaders. “While many other agencies downsized or closed their doors, this unstoppable force not only held firm, they added a number of new blue-chip names to their client roster on the basis of an astounding nine new business wins,” management says.

Leaders at SPLICE define the company as a culture-first healthcare agency fueled by purpose, passion, and creativity. “The foundation of our community is built on transparent and candid collaboration at all levels, especially with our client partners,” SPLICE executives say. “Entering our fifth year, our mission of reinventing the business of creativity continues to come alive across our full suite of services: brand and medical strategy, creative, digital innovation and execution, data and analytics, and more.”

“It took a pandemic for traditional agencies to pivot … but STRIKEFORCE was truly built for times like these,” declares agency leadership. Expanding on that concept, STRIKEFORCE executives say, “When the agency formed almost 13 years ago, it was never about putting out a five-alarm fire or re-organizing and right sizing in an effort to overcome a ‘pandemic-like paralysis.’ It was always about delivering a better work product through a more responsive and agile way of working for clients.”

“Through the power of storytelling, Syneos Health Communications brings science to life,” says the network’s leadership team. “Together, as a community of health-focused agencies – including GSW, Chandler Chicco Agency, Biosector 2, Chamberlain Healthcare Communications, Managed Markets Communications, Cadent Medical Communications, and Addison Whitney, among others – we operate at the industry’s center, where technology, creativity, and humanity come together.”

Agency leadership calls TBWA\WorldHealth “a radically open creative collective” with 14 offices around the world. “Since its launch in 2016, the agency has been a disruptive force in the industry, partnering with the world’s most ambitious healthcare brands and guided by three core values: #BeAuthentic, #DoGood, and #RaiseHell,” management says.

While the healthcare industry worked hard to find new ways to move things forward in an uncharted COVID-19 world, executives at Triple Threat Communications (TTC) say the agency intensified its core promise of providing focused brand support for its clients.  

Valuate Health Consultancy launched in 2019 as the market access consultancy offering of Omnicom Health Group (OHG). “We specialize in optimizing market access and value strategy for drug, device, and diagnostics manufacturers and collaborate with our clients to solve complex access and reimbursement challenges via data-driven, agile, and innovative solutions,” management says. The Valuate team is composed of former market access executives, pharmacists, data scientists, and business strategists working together to take a strategic approach to access and reimbursement challenges in an evolving industry.

VUE Health was founded in 2016 by Kathryn Wilson, a 20-year veteran of the pharmaceutical marketing industry. After years of doing it someone else’s way, Wilson says she felt she could change the way the game was being played by bringing an incredible team together that loved the work, the mission, and the science – and by partnering with clients to push the boundaries in a highly regulated marketplace. 

Despite the limitations of a locked-down New York City home base, leaders at y’all say the agency experienced a breakthrough year in 2020. “As we began adding increasingly diverse clients to our roster in early 2020, we sought out talent and capabilities to solve for our clients’ needs – transforming our once-niche digital agency into a multifaceted full-service creative partner,” agency executives says.
