#TrendTalks: Becoming Patient Centric

Elevate co-sponsored the MM&M #TrendTalks event, with discourse from top biopharma executives from across the nation

December 14, 2018

Along with Cardinal Health and PWC, Elevate Healthcare co-sponsored the recent MM&M #TRENDTALKS: Becoming Patient-Centric in New York City. The event was attended by Elevate co-founder, Frank X. Powers, who moderated a session with top biopharma executives from the Pharma, payer, and physician marketing space.

“The intimate, invite-only format for this event divides the conversation into three distinct segments, allowing, in this instance,
deep dives in patient engagement, adherence, and education and promotion programs.”

During the event, participants actively shared their observations on trends, and related their successes and challenges as their companies or clients evolved toward a more patient-centric model. Highlights of the day included:

  • Leveraging data based on research, one leading pharma brand shifted its marketing strategy from one that was product-centric to one that considered more everyday life issues, such as the patient’s transportation needs
  • Why segmenting patients based on behavior is a game-changer when allocating resources
  • How brands are using Facebook communities to drive interest in their therapies and adherence
  • Why keeping patient’s adherent is a team sport, and how marketers are responding
  • The imperative to being value to the HCP-patient relationship
