Marketing For the Future Patient Experience

It’s the classic tale of keeping up with the Joneses. Healthcare and pharma brands have been playing catch up with CPG, retail and hospitality thanks to stricter regulations and outdated technology. We don’t get a break from consumers, though. Their expectations are higher than ever to control their own medical decisions with personalized, relevant information and the latest digital tools. And let’s not forget the same rising expectations with HCPs.

This summer’s Pharma and Healthcare Insider Summit will take a deep dive into adapting your marketing and digital strategies for this evolving patient experience. Join us for a three-day retreat where the best marketers in the industry come together for real, in-depth conversations, about:

  • Unlocking digital tools and technology
  • Authentic celebrity and social influencers
  • Personalization and marketing automation
  • Market access and HCP marketing
  • Creating a sustainable content strategy
  • Change management for internal stakeholders
Join the conversation #MediaPostInsiderSummits

Panel: Understanding The Patient Experience
If “patient-centric” is the new industry buzzword, then we have to fully grasp the complete patient experience. How involved do they want to be in their own healthcare decisions? What steps are they going through to get the help they need? How are they engaging with their healthcare provider? Join our panel of experts to hear their insights and strategies for getting to the core of what patients are truly experiencing.

Panel: Unifying Your HCP and DTC Marketing Campaigns
Omnichannel isn’t enough anymore. Not only are you keeping messages consistent across every marketing channel, but how do you marry HCP and DTC strategies to activate a unified campaign, rather than two separate efforts? Consumers are more involved in their healthcare, and physicians are active on social media as much as they are medical journals. Our panel of top pharma marketers will discuss navigating the overlap between DTC and HTC audiences and how their marketing has shifted because of it.

Panel: Rinse & Repeat: How To Create A Sustainable Content Strategy
Getting the right content in front of the right person at the right place and time is healthcare marketing’s core challenge. But as media landscapes and patient journeys fragment across digital channels, filling the content pools and devising a smart distribution strategy gets very complex very fast. We’ll dive into how to strategically and organizationally think about the core marketing asset as part of the omnichannel customer experience.

For legacy pharma and OTC brands breaking down silos, especially when it comes to sharing data internally to craft a better patient experience, has become an empty refrain. So, what practically are brands doing to unify their data among their various product, brand and marketing units? What is working to get groups to work better together?

Everyone always says that listening to your customer is the most important rule in marketing, and we’re bringing the customer to you. Hear directly from a range of HCPs on how they like to engage with the industry, where they seek new information, and how they interact with patients so we’re driving patient-centricity across the entire journey.

Activities

Tuesday

Golf at Skytop Lodge

Set atop the peak of a high plateau, this mountain-style track plays over a variety of elevation changes, rolling terrain and boasts wide, tree-lined fairways with plenty of panoramic views against the backdrop of the beautiful Poconos.  This award-winning course originally opened in 1927 and has received multiple awards over the years - most recently listed as one of Pennsylvania’s top golf courses in 2023 by Golf Advisor.  A true gem in the Poconos.
 

Tuesday

Kayak outing

Surround yourself with crystalline, glistening water and take in the scenery of Skytop from a kayak or a canoe. We also offer equipment so you can completely relax. Experience an hour of boating on a pristine lake in a canoe or kayak!

Tuesday

Hiking tour

Following the shoreline of Skytop Lake, this walk totals 2.1 miles, including back and forth distances between the Lodge and lake. Attached to the trees along the trails are 42 interpretive plaques describing the trees, shrubs, geology and ecology. Scenic vistas open not only to the 75-acre Lake but also to distant views of the Lodge and the rugged cliffs of West Mountain at our resort in Pennsylvania.



Wednesday

Treetop Adventure Course outing

Fly between trees, balance as you walk over bridges and get up close and personal with nature. Treetop Adventure Course is a high ropes and zip lining course with varying obstacles including, 17 different zip lines, elevated bridgeways, cargo net, ladders, tight ropes and a variety of other exciting elements. Experienced guides accompany you and fellow Summiters through the natural beauty of the Poconos - an absolute unforgettable memory.

Wednesday

Mountain Biking tour

Enjoy a guided tour of the scenic biking trails that abound in the area.  From the deep green of the trees and rhythm of its waterfalls to views of the surrounding mountains from a variety of vantage points, this is an amazing way to combine an active afternoon with miles of beautiful site-seeing with your colleagues.  Definitely an outing to remember.

Wednesday

Axe Throwing

The sport of axe throwing was invented about 5 minutes after the first axe was created, and the expert axe throwing coaches here at Sky Top ensure safety, proper instruction and good times are had by all.  The outing will feature fun games and competitions that will leave participants loving the time.  Consistently one of our most popular and fun Summit outings.  A blast!
