ConvergeHEALTH by Deloitte has entered into a multi-year collaboration with Forest Labs and Intermountain Healthcare to conduct outcomes research. The collaboration will leverage next-generation analytics, insights from real-world evidence and collaborative research to better understand patient outcomes and success factors.
