    If you work on behalf of a pharmaceutical product, chances are your company has a relationship with a patient advocacy group (PAG) dedicated to the disease that product treats. Beyond your company's financial commitment, what does that relationship look like? How much do you know about the PAG, their members, and their mission? How much do they know about your company's goals? Do they trust you or are you perceived as another pharmaceutical company that is just 'in it for the money?'

    It's no secret that, while most American adults have an appreciation and fascination for healthcare and the practice of medicine, it is often accompanied with an equal - if not greater - level of skepticism.

    Despite the fact that our world is becoming more and more digital, direct mail can still be an effective tool for healthcare marketing campaigns.

  • Giving Your Customers A Voice  in Marketing: Health on 11/20/2012

    Philosopher Charles Darwin once said, "It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." Even though he was not referring to business strategy or customer service, this concept applies nicely to both. It is indeed essential for any business to hear what their customers are saying about their product or service, and adapt accordingly.

    Consumers today are more demanding than ever, always looking for a reason to doubt your claim or ignore your message. For marketers, the most challenging part of developing communications in this age of skepticism is identifying and crafting the reward or promise.

    Mobile health technology (mHealth) offers exciting opportunities to access and administer healthcare on the go.

  • Helping The Doctor's Office Get The Most Out Of Your Outreach  in Marketing: Health on 05/22/2012

    There are many factors that drive patients to the doctor's office, but-ultimately-the doctors are the gatekeepers of patients' prescription drugs. To achieve blockbuster success, pharmaceutical companies need to have physician ambassadors who fully understand their product and its benefits to increase their likelihood of prescribing it. The same holds true for recruiting patients for clinical trials. Clinical development teams spend considerable resources to drive patients to the physician's office to recruit them for a clinical trial. Once the inquiry is forwarded to the site, however, the pharmaceutical company must rely on the staff at the doctor's office to "sell" its research study.
