Client Context

Our client, a national healthcare qualifying assessments provider, was losing market share in the US due to increased competition from private credentialing companies.

Our Approach

We tailored the study into two phases:

Phase 1: Market overview and growth drivers of the healthcare licensing, credentialing and certification sector, focusing on market size, key players and their market share, and growth trends

  • Major assessment product and service offerings, features and modes of delivery
  • Innovations in assessment design and administration, including differentiation
  • Customer acquisition strategy, deal structure and marketing messaging
  • Major client accounts with a focus on health services
  • Pricing and revenue model, including cost drivers and flexibility


Our actionable insights on trends in the market, and detailed benchmarking of competitor products offered our client a deeper understanding of how to adapt to current credentialing, licensing, and testing challenges. Our client leveraged this market research to refocus internal discussions on R&D and future strategy, including whether adding new digital features to their healthcare licensing assessments was in line with their overall ROI expectations.
