We provide Clinical Outcomes Assessment (COA) services in partnership with Acaster Lloyd Consulting Ltd (ALC). Acaster Lloyd consulting is a provider of COA research and consultancy services. In late 2018, Avalon and ALC announced a close long-term collaborative partnership to provide HEOR and COA services seamlessly to our clients. Their clients include pharma, biotech companies and academic groups. ALC was founded in 2016 by Sarah Acaster, MSc, and Andrew Lloyd, DPhil, both formerly of Oxford Outcomes and ICON plc. As well as having extensive experience in the development, selection and use of COAs (including patient-reported outcomes and health utility studies), they both have particular expertise in utility and preference-based studies. Like Avalon, Acaster Lloyd Consulting represents their scientific research interests and shared goals: good science and bespoke consultancy to deliver the client’s needs, from the creative to the pragmatic.
