An Ongoing Process of Improvement: Using Analytics to Make Smarter Business Decisions and Prescribe Effective Engagement
Marilyn Cox, Marketing Principal, Industry Center of Excellence, Oracle Marketing Cloud

Multichannel, Omnichannel, Cross-channel.... Call it what you want but it all means the same thing. Challenge.  An unrealistic expectation of perfection.

We recognize that communication channels are multiplying. Marketing teams are tasked with communicating a consistent value message across email campaigns, direct mail campaigns, print and digital ads, social media, websites, blogs, events, press releases, partner and patient portals, and on and on and on......

And with that comes the multiplication of audiences. You have physicians, pharmacists, payors, and patients.  And each of those has a sphere of influence that's hard to define. Oh, and you need to do that all the while remaining compliant and often with little budget.

But it's these expansive audiences and communication channels that ultimately carry your value message. You can't ignore them. You must engage.

In this presentation we'll discuss how to:

  • Effectively engage across complex channels and spheres of influence; drive new forms of engagement with "hard to see" and "no see" physicians
  • Collect and analyze data and metrics to make smarter business decisions
  • Empower sales to effectively engage prescribers and payors; amplify the voice of thought leading payer formulary influencers

How and where can pharma participate?
