What do you mean by Commercial DNA™?
Commercial DNA™ is the expertise required to be successful in the healthcare technology market. A great vision and innovative technology are both critical – but these alone do not guarantee success. If a company offers a unique product but is selling to the wrong market segment or has a misaligned pricing model, success will be elusive. Insufficient market coverage that restricts channel expansion or sales teams that lack clear messaging will also limit a company’s ability to generate interest in their product. GTMH believes that an organization’s ability to be successful in these areas is tied directly to the strength of their Commercial DNA™. We possess the experience and expertise to help our clients quickly develop and grow these essential skills.
How can Get-to-Market Health help my company get its Product/Service/Solution an audience in the C-Suite?
Securing buy-in for healthcare technology comes with a unique set of challenges. The support of a C-Suite leader is critical, as creative methods for funding the initiative within the provider’s existing budget may be necessary. The changes brought on by the Pandemic have further cemented the power and importance of winning the vote of the C-Suite. Get-to-Market Health’s knowledge and experience navigating the C-Suite and funding processes allow us to provide our clients with the specific actions and messaging needed to successfully target the right leaders in the most efficient and compelling way possible.

We specialize in short and medium-term engagements with our clients that get them better prepared for growth. Clients have utilized our advisory services to provide the right structure and process for new hires as well as providing ongoing coaching for commercial leadership.
As a healthcare technology investor, how would I work with Get-to-Market Health?
There are two primary ways Get-to-Market Health works with the investor community. The first is during the due diligence phase, where, at the investor’s request, GTHM will help evaluate potential investments from a commercial perspective. Areas of assessment may include strength of pipeline, brand awareness, selling motion, sales talent, competitive positioning and overall market reception. Secondly, we focus on Commercial Activation and Improvement for your investment opportunities. This enables investors to maximize returns and quickly grow the businesses. GTMH will provide clear and detailed recommendations, which leverage a company’s existing strategy and tactics as well as work with key stakeholders on the aspects of Commercial Activation and Improvement.
As a CEO, Sales and/or Marketing leader in a healthcare technology company, how would I work with Get-to-Market Health?
Companies that have a clear, long term strategic vision for their business can still find it challenging to keep up with the current pace and evolution of the healthcare market.

GTMH provides accelerated sales and marketing programs that will help quickly capitalize on opportunities and stay ahead of the competition.
