PM360, a publication for marketing decision makers in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries, recently named Elevate Healthcare as a Trailblazer Initiative finalist in four categories.

Since 2009, the PM360 Trailblazer awards have recognized outstanding achievement and innovation in healthcare marketing. Each year, nominations are judged by the PM360 Editorial Advisory Board, a distinguished cross-section of industry experts. Winning initiatives were selected for their ability to stand out in the complex, ever-changing healthcare environment, and were judged on their ability to overcome challenges; the skill, innovation, and quality of planning and execution; and the effectiveness of the work.

A total of 81 finalists were chosen in the 17 Initiative categories which include: App/Digital Solution or Suite, Consumer Website/Online Initiative, Direct-to-Consumer Campaign, Direct-to-Patient Campaign, HCP Education, Interactive Marketing Program, Patient/Consumer Education, Persistence/Adherence Program, Point of Care, Product/Service Launch, Professional Campaign, Professional Website/Online Initiative, Sales Aid, Self-promotion, Social Media Campaign, Unbranded Campaign, and Video/TV campaign.

“The road to being named a Trailblazer finalist is not easy,” says Anna Stashower, CEO and Publisher of PM360. “All of our shortlisted initiatives faced stiff competition from hundreds of entries across the 17 categories. But these 81 finalists stood out with their innovative tactics and impressive results.”

Finalists are acknowledged and winners will be honored during a special reception at Gotham Hall at 1356 Broadway in New York City on Thursday, September 13, 2018.
