Partner Keynote – Supporting A Positive Treatment Experience – Sponsored by OptimizeRx
Pharma manufacturers are no small part of a patient’s treatment experience. Yet, it’s notoriously difficult for pharma to connect with your customers in meaningful ways. Why not think about a new way to engage? Looking at customer segments in siloes creates a siloed experience. It’s time to put an umbrella over your patient and HCP engagement strategies to create a seamless treatment experience for patients. The technology exists to deliver specific resources to patients and providers at specific points in the patient journey – including when the patient and provider are together. This session will provide new ideas about how to utilize targeted channels to deliver value at those points in the journey where siloed thinking leads to leakage. Even before the first fill.

HCP Deep Dive - Physician Perspectives: Pharma Engagement In a Pandemic Era
We tapped into our global panel of physicians to answer your key questions below; plus, we’ll share exclusive insights on what this means for your marketing strategy.
  • Once restrictions are lifted, how many conversations (in-office and remote) do you expect to have with pharma sales reps per week?
  • Once state or other restrictions have been lifted, do you expect pharma sales reps will be allowed access to your practice/institution for in-office meetings?
  • Do you expect other pharma representatives (beyond sales reps) will be allowed access to your practice/institution for in-office meetings? 
  • Thinking about interactions with sales reps, which ones would you rather have in-person vs. remote if either option were available?
