We have steadfastly believed in making a difference by being a reliable intermediary between the various healthcare players towards producing better medicine and improving healthcare outcomes.”
The marketplace is fragmented with a few large players and a number of smaller local companies. While the larger players face challenges when it comes to niche markets, the smaller players are unable to cover multiple geographies. GlocalMind has successfully bridged this gap by deploying an onshore/offshore model addressing these challenges and providing global fieldwork with local expertise.
Vrinda Deval, Managing Partner, GLocalMind adds, “We are very excited to have completed 10 years of operations, a journey dotted by several milestones across clients, people, processes. With our global presence and reach we are happy to have some of the world’s biggest healthcare brands and entities as our clients.”
She adds, “The pandemic has only further brought to the forefront the need to adopt new methods to speed up research timelines which GlocalMind is well poised to deliver as we enter into the next phase of our growth.”
With COVID-19 being the biggest healthcare crisis faced by the world in many decades, the medical community has been working on a vaccine as well as to understand the impact on the healthcare system. GLocalMind has conducted various market research studies including studying the Impact on healthcare practices, Impact on hospital operations, Adoption of tele-medicine, pricing perceptions for Covid Vaccine, healthcare innovation and transformation etc.
Known for their focus on technology, Glocalmind has successfully conducted over 200,000+ surveys globally to date. Armed with their GLocalSMART suite of products, their proprietary panel and project management software, they are well on their way to transitioning from being an independent healthcare research facilitator to a larger aggregator model.
