What makes us stand out?

The right mixture of
experience and passion

Our focus

We have been providing support for register studies and phase III and IV randomised clinical trials for almost twenty years now. We focus on the cardiovascular system. We provide support for research on cardiovascular diseases, risk factors and comorbidities. We specialise in cardiological care research and quality assurance.

Our standards

Our standards are as simple as they are ambitious: well-designed studies that we can guide to successful completion for our clients. Our team of statisticians, IT specialists and clinical project managers is there to manage studies from the design stage up to publication. We provide advice on financing matters and guide study projects through all the ethical and legal testing procedures.

Our belief

We live and breathe teamwork. We have been cooperating with our partners both at home and abroad for many years now. We firmly believe that successful research is the product of working together with a team you can trust.

12 Languages

International and multilingual:
The IHF GmbH team deals with clients and partners as equals and is always there for you in the right language.

3 Apprentices

Doesn’t sound like very many. We take on everyone we have trained. That is why the number of traineeships is limited. Sustainable personnel development is more important to us.

92,5 Cups

Our daily coffee consumption. There’s tea too, though.

14,7 Kilometres

This is the distance our employees cycle to work every day. At the end of the day, we know from our work that exercise is important for keeping your heart healthy.

95% Follow-up evaluations

Our patient service employees follow things up. That’s why we are proud of our follow-up evaluation rate.
