Illuminera successfully holds 1st Pharma Strategy & Innovation Summit
What should pharmaceutical companies do to survive? Patient-centric model is the key to winning
Patients have more influence and control over treatment decisions, consumerization is consequently on the rise in the pharmaceutical industry. And for pharmaceutical companies, the essence of consumerization is to build a patient-centric business model, integrating all the key tools and resources to better meet patients’ needs and reshape their treatment decisions. On March 10th, at the 1st Pharma Strategy & Innovation Summit (PSIS) organized by Illuminera, more than 200 practitioners discussed the challenges and opportunities in the pharma industry and how to build a new patient-centric business model.
Past pitfalls Vs. future direction
When pharmaceutical marketers first get involved in a patient project, they tend to come across some pitfalls: solution instead of strategy, shortsighted instead of big picture, offering w/o clear value proposition. To avoid these pitfalls, a smart "patient solution" should focus on 4 things: strategy first, fitting the patient journey, considering the big picture and layout early, and defining KPI or ROI. The Close-loop Patient Pathway Engineering (PPE) model proposed by Illuminera would start from the pharmaceutical ecology, comprehensively plans the patient-centric journey, introduces and explores more stakeholder interactions, and creates the best experience for patients.
Bearing FMCG mindset to treat patients as consumers
The “pharmaceutical consumerization” explored by medical companies is exactly the survival rule of FMCG industry practice for decades. However which areas should be more consumer-oriented? What is the path to success? With rich practical experience in the consumer sector, Illuminera emphasized the importance to embrace FMCG mindset to reshape and implement the patient-driven model for pharmaceutical companies. It meant when designing the "consumerized" patient management solutions, brands should try to generate patients' internal demands, use data as the crucial driver across the whole journey, focus on brand experience and differentiation, and define refined patient operation.
