  • Are "patient solutions" really that? Addressing whether physicians are more likely to prescribe your drug if you are providing a patient support tool or network

Video Highlights

Patient Centricity and Digital Interactions — What Is and Is Not Patient Centricity?

  • Examine patient centricity and digital tools for increasing adherence rates
  • Recognize how pharma can navigate the patient journey to deliver better outcomes through innovative digital initiatives with patient co-creation at the heart
  • Evaluate pharma’s ability to build a business model that can deliver on:
    • Putting patients first and thinking like a patient
    • Empowering the engaged patient
    • Understanding that patients are at “The Center of What We Do”
    • Delivering a positive patient experience
    • Moving beyond the Patient Hub

The Creation of a More Integrated Customer Experience: How Do We Connect Content, Channels, and Analytics in HCP Targeting?

  • Gain customer insights by mapping your customer journey
  • Identify new areas of content and preferred channels
  • Deliver customer behavior insights from digital analytics
  • Adapt your business model to focus on the customer instead of your brand
  • Move away from a sales rep-centric mentality to engage the physician and integrate the sales rep as a "channel" to use to reach your audience
  • Evaluate physician-interfacing tools and strategies
  • Pull it all together to design a new customer experience

The Power of a Multichannel Strategy that Addresses Modern Customer Needs and Delivers ROI: Are You Ready to Link Your Myriad Activities Together to Create a Seamless User Experience?

  • Overcome fears associated with deploying new tactics without a precise way to measure their effectiveness
  • Learn how to deploy a multichannel strategy using cloud and mobile technologies
  • Develop a framework that provides an early warning system and delivers timely leading indicators to quickly adjust tactics while its insights into lagging indicators measure cost-effectiveness and return
  • Find a successful recipe for disseminating & maximizing both unbranded and branded messages via multiple digital channels
  • Collaborate across functions to define measures at key customer touch points
  • Discuss the use of predictive analytics
  • Establish whether rep-driven marketing fits into the puzzle
  • Debate whether senior management within pharma generally drives multichannel, or whether the impulse comes more from brand or BU managers — and which approach is the most advantageous
  • Understand the two types of MCM practitioners: those that use MCM to communicate traditionally, and those that understand customer behaviors have changed and use MCM to communicate differently

Today’s Innovation Landscape: How Can We Incorporate Innovation Teams Across the Business and Use Innovative Methods to Solve Business Challenges?

  • Form a connection between “pharma speed” and “digital speed” by leveraging resources from other sectors
  • Determine whether pharma organizations can adapt to a more innovative company culture that will improve operational efficiency and create new tools and offerings
  • Recognize that pharma organizations can transition from being asset companies to solutions providers by changing the mentality of product launches:
    • Explore the definition of a “solution” and decide what you would measure differently
    • Examine whether your organization thinks outside its comfort zone
    • Discuss methods that can be used to build solutions, such as journey mapping, design thinking and script journeys
    • Establish how to work and roll out solutions in a cross-functional environment while balancing speed, relevance, demands, and utility
    • Identify the key KPIs for solutions, and how to bridge KPIs to program returns
