Question: What does patient-centricity mean to you and is the industry doing enough to fulfill the needs of patients?

For us, patient centricity is a way of thinking about brands similar to the way HCPs approach their patients. While the -provider has valuable scientific data to inform choices, the success or failure of care is in the provider-patient communication.

Studies have shown that the prescriber's ability to communicate the full value story with the patient is key to adherence. Then the pharmacist becomes a vital part of that patient-centric discussion—addressing issues and reinforcing the patient's decision to adhere.

The industry does an invaluable job in bringing medications to market. Ensuring that actionable information is in the hands of HCPs and patients, when and where they need it, can never be overemphasized.
