Case History
A major pharmaceutical company was launching a new and innovative treatment option in a crowed therapeutic category. The goal of the launch program was to create an integrated, educational print and digital campaign for multiple target audiences on this new therapy. Specific objectives included:
  • Reach all office based PCPs, PAs and NPs and targeted specialists
  • Deliver MPR New Product Prescribing Alert
  • Deliver CD-ROM with eMPR and product branding by way of sales force distribution
  • Create and Deliver MPR branded and clinical Handbook on Specific Therapy
  • Deliver an integrated “on and off-line” program
  • Provide metrics to determine usage and acceptance of program

MPR developed a successful multi-platform that included digital and print components over the course of the launch period. This MPR branded program met all the client's core objectives throughout the launch phase. An expanded initiative that builds on the successes of 2008 and incorporates new opportunities is expected to roll out in 2009.
