Our expertise

Health care interventions and products need to be thoroughly evaluated. Their potential benefits, harms, and added value for consumers, patients and health care systems need to be described and analyzed.

ceb is providing strategic insightful solutions to customers to realize their projects and to improve tomorrow's patient outcomes.

Real world evidence

ceb has long-standing expertise in creating and analyzing real world evidence. We use advanced technologies that aim to minimize bias from observational study analyses. We use findings from our empirical and methodological research to inform our methods for analyzing observational data.


Routinely collected data analysis

We are experienced in the analysis of large nationwide registry data and conduct of pharmacoepidemiological studies, looking at patient important clinical outcomes, safety data, or cost-impact in health economic studies. More recently we began to use routinely collected data to design comparative and pragmatic trials for the nationwide evaluation of health care interventions in routine practice, maximizing both internal and external validity.
