What are the game-changing ideas that didn’t come to pass in 2018 that will prove transformative in 2019?

While AI, predictive analytics, and real-world data punctuate marketing conversations, their potential still marinates in relative stagnancy. Until case studies demonstrating marginal impact are outnumbered by success stories, advanced analytics will remain an untapped game-changer. Identifying yet-to-be diagnosed patients with difficult-to-diagnose diseases and the clinicians who influence treatment will be a reality rather than a quandary.

Services and offerings

Actionable, AI-driven analytics fueled by real-world data.

Plexus, our machine learning-based solution, identifies the true clinical influencers — those individuals who impact the care of patients far beyond their own practice by influencing the behavior of other clinicians. This provides our clients the competitive advantage of being able to leverage the most influential clinicians in a specific disease state to drive the diffusion of innovation through influence-based marketing.

Orion, our patient-finding solution, utilizes predictive analytics to identify specific clinicians currently managing yet-to-be-diagnosed patients with diseases that are difficult to diagnose. This proprietary solution leverages machine learning and computational statistics to analyze disparate sources of data — including healthcare encounter data, laboratory data, and electronic health records — to reliably predict which patients have the highest probability of having a particular difficult-to-diagnose disease.

Acuity, our global stakeholder management platform, employs industry-leading methodologies for data mining, cleansing, and disambiguation to identify and profile clinicians.

Our analyses are derived from disparate sources of data that are carefully curated to meet the specific needs of individual clients. As our clients continue to build a wealth of data on thought leaders, we provide them with customized dashboards to identify, measure, and track thought leader engagements.
