Exactly as prophetized by many of us. Before or after OA times, the profit has to be the same...A clear demonstration that only "fair gold" OA is acceptable and that "green" OA is optimal, at least for now, if we don't want to spend a huge part of research funds just for publication in the digital age.

It is possible to be TOO patient-centric. Let me explain...

Suppose, for example, that a pharmaceutical company has an Rx coupon that reimburses patients for the co-payment made when filling a prescription for their product. This is a common practice. In return, patients provide some personal information -- name, physical address, email address, etc -- when applying for the coupon. With this information -- and permission from the patient -- the pharma company can send the patient notices and further offers via US postal mail or email.

This could be considered patient-centric if it goes above and beyond sending the patient promotional pieces and if social media is brought into the picture.

With the personal information mentioned above, it is possible to find patients on Twitter and Facebook and use technology and Big Data analytics to track their conversations. Patients might even provide their Twitter and Facebook information if asked, making it even easier to track them.


A pharma company may monitor individual patient conversations to determine if a patient is engaging in a lifestyle that counteracts the effect of the company's drug. A Chantix patient, for example, may admit to smoking a cigarette. The pharma company (I won't mention names) could remind the patient -- via private channels such as email, which it collected via the couponing program -- that smoking while on Chantix is not recommended.

Now that would be patient-centric -- maybe TOO patient-centric.
