Philosophy

At ENTRADA, healthcare is more than our business. We harness the powerful combination of medical science, communications, education and emerging technology to reimagine engagement in healthcare. With decades of combined experience, we have distilled our working philosophy into 5 core beliefs.

1. We believe in our clients.
Our clients are transforming healthcare, pioneering medicine and delivering care that supports personal and public health. Their work inspires us to be collaborators committed to amplifying their ability to deliver care, compete strategically and expand their value.

2. We believe each person has the right to health and information.
Today, we all face unprecedented challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic and glaring health disparities in our communities. The healthcare community has the potential to ensure each person can make informed choices and lead increasingly healthy lifestyles. At ENTRADA, we see our work as a profound responsibility to change lives through the power of insight, information and inspiration.

3. We believe healthcare must evolve.
We’ve spent decades working with healthcare companies that make decisions based on beliefs that haven’t been validated. We are committed to transforming the approach to a more empathetic patient-centric system. Our disciplined three-phased process reimagines healthcare consulting and communications. We uncover entrenched beliefs, develop strategic pathways, innovate with design thinking, reimagine engagement and build technology that drives lasting change.

4. We believe there is a better way to solve complex challenges.
Using the principles of design thinking, we place people at the center of our work to understand their goals, needs and pain points. As we question assumptions about how stakeholders think and make choices, we develop empathy for their lived experience and the challenges they face. We use a hands-on approach to create rapid iteration and prototyping to surface the insights needed to craft truly innovative, user-centric solutions with the potential to drive healthcare transformation.

5. We believe in each other.
We’re a close-knit team that believes in transparency and the belief that great ideas can come from anywhere in our company. We do our best work when we build on each other’s strengths to bring new perspectives, fresh thinking and varied frameworks based on our collective talents. Our collaboration across disciplines inspires us to push harder, dig deeper and create transformative work for, and with, our clients.
