…We are very pleased with their work. Translucency gave us exactly the information we needed…
“We were looking at a new segment of the community healthcare market, and we didn’t have much understanding in it. We wanted an independent consultant to explore the market and look at it from a point of view we hadn’t experienced. Mark gave us a very clear indication of the way in which our technology would be reimbursed.
We are very pleased with their work. Translucency gave us exactly the information we needed. They were quick and responsive, listened to what we said, asked the right questions, then went off and got the job done.
Mark gave us the confidence to say yes and pursue our project further, allowing us to open a crucial strategic area in our long-term future.”

…In short, Mark & team are very customer-centric and extremely responsive when they’re most needed, especially when things get urgent…
Our number one benefit from Translucency was strategic guidance that is needed most especially when you are a breakthrough innovation and dealing with a very complex & dynamic healthcare environment like in England.
Translucency also provided a stakeholder map detailing who the key decision-makers are, why they’re important and what their role is. And they were instrumental in dealing with the proliferation of reimbursement applications.
Translucency is uniquely positioned to handle everything a new medtech product needs to get into the UK market. Mark and his team have the knowledge, skillset and great relationships with reimbursement authorities that is not so easy to find in the current market space.
In short, Mark & team are very customer-centric and extremely responsive when they’re most needed, especially when things get urgent.”

…Translucency stands out from other consultancies. Mark’s medical background and experience working with the NHS is vital…
“Mark has been working for Zimmer on market access and health economics projects. The development of a full HTA file was one of the key projects with very short timelines. His commitment and quality of work was far beyond our expectations. It is always a pleasure to work with Mark.
Translucency stands out from other consultancies. Mark’s medical background and experience working with the NHS is vital. His local knowledge of the UK’s health system and in-depth knowledge of health assessments and evidence-based medicine means his clients get great results.
Mark and his team were able to close the gap between business and health systems: Translucency has the right skills and resources, and is able to talk to the right decision-makers at the right time.
It’s always tricky to find the right consultant. Mark came highly recommended – and I would recommend him in turn.”

…Translucency is diligent, thorough and communicative…
“I’ve been very satisfied with the work -Translucency is diligent, thorough and communicative. They were very focused on getting us what we needed, rather than just ticking boxes and saying the job was done.
Thanks to Mark and Translucency, we gleaned the information and the materials we needed to proceed with securing funding and reimbursement for our novel technology. They enabled us to plan our activities for the next few years across several countries.
I would definitely recommend them. I’m confident the end result will be positive – they’ll deliver what is needed for the business.”
“Mark Charny and the Translucency team have provided on-going strategic and tactical advice for navigating through the NHS process. They successfully shepherded us through NICE reviews and NHS coding processes – and therefore into the health system in the UK.”

“It was very valuable to be able to work with one company that could address multiple countries and multiple issues at the same time. Translucency responds very quickly and their work more than lived up to our expectations.”

…Mark and his team go beyond the call of duty…
“Mark has an extremely in-depth knowledge of the entire UK health system and its nuances. He has been involved in almost every aspect of the system in one way or another. I spoke to other consultancies and nobody else came close to his level of knowledge.
The other thing about Translucency that sets the company apart from others is its ability to do the most possible work with limited funds. This is really important for a start-up like ours. Mark is very flexible and works with us to get the most from our budgets, rather than selling us frills that don’t get us anywhere.
Mark and his team go beyond the call of duty. Their service is comprehensive: they handled every little detail for us and their proactivity meant nothing was missed.”

…Their overall approach is well-thought-through. They build a menu of services that is Г la carte: you only take what you need…
Translucency have helped us to understand the landscape of reimbursement in various countries. Thanks to their expertise, we’ve been able to better deploy our sales force and methodically address reimbursement potentials in 11 countries throughout Europe. Without Translucency, this process would probably have taken us a year or more. They helped us to develop a strategy very quickly.
Mark and his team helped us to understand the requirements about filing for reimbursement. Trying to prepare a value dossier that attracts the attention of the reader to the right metrics and messages for each country would have been humongous time and effort for us alone, and we wouldn’t have produced the most optimal document. Translucency understands the needs of specific countries and they helped us to prepare documents that work for us and for the healthcare systems of the countries we approached.
Their overall approach is well-thought-through. They build a menu of services that is la carte: you only take what you need, they’re not interested in selling you services you don’t need. Highly recommended.
