Klein and Partners

Klein & Partners provides research and consulting services solely to the healthcare industry that help clients improve and maintain their brand’s health. The objective of any brand that strives to be strong is to “acquire and retain customers more efficiently and profitably than competitors over the long-term.” These two elements of a single strategy are brought to life through an effectively communicated brand promise (i.e., patient acquisition) and the effective internal operationalization of the brand promise by creating a strong brand experience (i.e., patient retention).

All of Klein & Partners’ quantitative and qualitative research and consulting services are geared toward improving your brand’s overall health; whether it is in providing information that helps your brand increase its share of new patients or increase its retention of existing patients or even improve current patients’ level of interaction (i.e., share of experience) with the brand … because it’s all brand research.
