Insights From the Front Lines of Digital Health Innovation
Many times, pharma marketers sit a few degrees away from their patient and provider customers and may have a difficult time connecting aggregate data with the behaviors of real people. In this presentation you’ll get a closer look at HCP and patient engagement at points in their health journeys you may not often see. GoodRx is the leading consumer-centric healthcare platform that connects patients and providers across the care continuum, from information seeking to diagnosis, from selecting a treatment to paying for it, and from improving adherence to accessing ongoing support.

Here are some of the takeaways from this eye-opening presentation:
  • How to  boost patient awareness and access
  • How to support provider-patient conversations about OOP costs
  • Understand some key differences among specialties

Inside the Mind of Today’s Patient
While we can’t read patients’ minds, we can monitor their eye movement and facial expressions to better understand how they are feeling in the doctor’s office. The pandemic turned so much in healthcare upside down: Our innovative research methods uncovered data on the significance of the waiting room as part of the overall patient experience. Point of Care done correctly has the opportunity to transform patient anxiety into empowerment and to build trust in the most pivotal moments before a healthcare visit. Attend this session to peel back the curtain on what patients are thinking, feeling and doing in the waiting room—backed by results of a new national patient survey, the latest wait-time data and exclusive PatientPoint Wait-Time Communication Platform eye-tracking data—and see why your brand needs to be in the waiting room now more than ever.

The Power Duo: Linear TV + Connected TV
While there is no question that linear TV is a very effective way to reach audiences at scale, connected TV can not only reach audiences at scale but also reach audiences that are incremental to linear TV. Making connected TV the optimal complement to linear TV campaigns to extend reach in a smarter and precise way.
As internet-enabled Connected TV penetration increases and television viewership becomes even more fragmented between ad-supported platforms and providers, it’s important for brands to understand where their audiences are enjoying content to maximize reach and efficiency of their television campaigns.
In this panel will discuss a case study from Nurtec, the only medication proven to treat & prevent migraines, where they partnered with Klick Health and DeepIntent to:
  • Identify the audience overlap between linear TV and CTV 
  • Expand Nurtec’s reach beyond traditional linear TV with CTV 
  • Prove the efficiency of CTV by measuring the cost per verified patient reached (CPVP) for linear TV vs CTV

Why Omni-channel is Over
It’s time to stop talking about “omni-channel marketing”. That nomenclature is over-used. It is the only channel. Today, any agency or brand team not realizing that HCPs and Patients both see everything you create thru the eyes of a consumer means you are behind. Key Take Aways:
  • HCPs actually behave like consumers and Patients are actually oftentimes well-informed ambassadors of their own clinical self-care. Messaging cannot be siloed anymore.
  • Social-media platforms can build or kill your brand. Fear of participating is not an option. Your consumers are already talking about your RX brands and not ensuring brand consistency and communication linkage can be detrimental to your brand’s legacy.             
  • Omnichannel marketing-must embrace the new. We will share some examples of breakthrough creative programs that delivered for HCPs and patients both.

Scale With Substance: Using Data to Work Smarter not Harder
When it comes to digital marketing the goal is always clear: reach qualified patient audiences. To date, many reliable solutions have been simple– find them within condition content. But what about when they are researching a new hobby? Or trying to educate themselves on interest rates? The challenge in non-endemic environments has come down to relying on fragmented data and a lot of guesswork to reach a qualified audience.

Scale beyond endemic health can still have substance. In this session, the Health Group at Dotdash Meredith will discuss how reputable brands, first-party data, and 3rd party tagging with robust privacy safeguards can work together. We’ll explore audience quality insights that identify probabilistic approaches when engaging with condition audiences, and psychographic profiles of a whole patient. This session will look at how to achieve a safe and secure look into a patient population, to make content work smarter, not harder, for your brand.

The Evolving Role of Medical Affairs in Omnichannel Communication, Embracing the Power of Digital Engagement & Partnership
There has been exponential growth in digital communications fueling an external ecosystem of Marketing in Pharma. But what about Medical Affairs? Many Medical teams are prudent to take the initiative—and risk—to make a difference in Medical Affairs Digital Communication either with HCPs or even with patients/caregivers. We (MA) stumble upon many limitations (i.e., On & Off label communications, Pharmacovigilance requirements, Proactive vs Reactive Communication, …etc.), oftentimes leading to the decision not to do anything!

Disruptive digital technologies are always an exciting topic when thinking futuristically. For example, take the role of virtual assistants, such as AI-enabled smart chatbots and how they can offer the opportunity to optimize the way HCPs can get answers instantaneously 24/7 on their computers or phones for their inquiries to make the best medical decisions for their patients. How about “voice tech” or “digital voice virtual assistants?” There is no doubt in my mind that both voice and audio are new horizons with significant runway to completely transform customer-centricity and disrupt how pharma has previously engaged with customers. For instance, we’ve managed to develop the first voice assistant for Pharma which works with Google Assistant, and have gained a lot of learnings. Finally, it is an exciting journey that may soon expand to the metaverse. Join me during my session to learn about my Medical Affairs experience, learn about what has gone well and what has not!

Hear from Susan Abedi, Chief Strategy Officer, and Megan Fabry, EVP Digital Strategy, on real-world experiences identifying and engaging with DTLs, insights from HCP research on DTL perceptions, and guidance on how to define a DTL engagement strategy.

Script Generation Media V/s Lead Generation Media: What’s Best For Pharma
It is crucial for life sciences brands to engage with healthcare professionals (HCPs) at appropriate moments to make them aware about their drugs and therapies, and additionally support them with relevant research around their area of expertise.

With accelerated adoption of digital in the life sciences industry, marketers are rigorously working to generate leads through online mediums. Non-endemic platforms - news, sports or a financial site for instance - have become quite popular mediums to reach the target audience and get them to take a desired action. For a consumer, it could mean downloading a whitepaper and case studies, participating in polls and surveys, or visiting a landing page. Eventually, it is about making the users fill in a contact form to capture the lead.
However, is ‘lead generation media’ best suited for life sciences marketers whose end goal is to get scripts written? Through any campaign on digital, it is all they are looking to achieve. If non-endemic media does not serve the purpose, which ‘script generation media’ does the job?

Targeting HCPs with brand messages during their clinical workflow while they are tending to their patients or prescribing them a drug improves manifold the chances of writing a brand’s script. A contextually relevant message maximizes the outcomes of POC communications, hence is an ideal resource for script generation.

Privacy First: Responsible Data Collection in an Evolving Digital and Policy Landscape
New data privacy measures and restrictions have dramatically changed the game over the last few years when it comes to reaching patients with targeted health content—and on top of those changes, data, healthcare and policy are intersecting in unprecedented ways to impact patients. With these seismic shifts taking place, and with privacy issues taking center stage in the national discourse, it’s more important than ever that pharma marketers are good stewards of patient data. This panel will explore how marketers can practice responsible and transparent data collection while respecting patient privacy—and why doing so will be critical to both earning patient trust and ensuring long-term targeting success as the digital landscape continues to evolve.
