Nine Health CIC specialises in applied research particularly for health technology companies. Our experience leading health care research for the NHS has demonstrated that the commercial sector often struggles to bring its products to market. This is often due to a lack of clinical and economic evidence. We are able to bridge this gap by matching national and international funding to products and services, arranging academic support through our partnership arrangements with UK universities and designing and delivering detailed research programmes. We work internationally, throughout the UK with links in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland and locally with NHS and other health and social care organisations.


To sell successfully into Health and Social Care, you need detailed information about your market size, segmentation, target population and maybe some help with your business case. The Nine Health CIC team came from the NHS Information Centre (the national NHS data repository) with many years’ experience of producing bespoke data packages and data analysis. We specialise in the development and measurement of patient, clinical and other outcomes.

Benefits Management

To improve, we all have to manage our benefits. We need to know where the benefits will come from and why they were chosen. This means more than simply writing a business case. Cases have to be turned into reality.

To us, Benefits Management is that overall set of decisions, processes and activities that makes best use of scarce resources to deliver optimal, appropriate benefits to identified stakeholders.

We tailor our approach to the way each client works and the benefits they desire. We wrap Benefits Management within our wider range of specialist experience and skills to improve the quality of our clients’ decisions and the results they achieve.
