I have just returned from the annual European Rheumatology EULAR 2013 (#EULAR2013) meeting in Madrid. This massive conference was attended by about 14,000 delegates, with over 500 ‘posters’ per day and over 230 invited speakers. There were 10 concurrent oral sessions in the programme 4 or 5 times a day, often with very little time in between.
I can remember many conferences in the past where I felt that I hadn’t get much out of the conference, but I think that this one was better than most. Over the years I have learned that it takes a lot of preparation and focus to make the most of the experience. For what it’s worth, I’m going to share with you how a I went about my preparation this.
Pharma companies generally have a great idea of who their traditional KOLs are, but they have no idea about how active they are online (if at all) and they often have no real idea of who KOI (Key Online Influencers) are. This is a big gap in a key knowledge area.
As more and more HCPs turn to digital the impact of KOI will become increasingly important. Pharma companies need to start finding out which KOL are active online, and who the KOI are that they should be building relationships with them, just as they have traditionally built relationships with KOLs.
This is essentially just a new group of KOL and the process for KOL relationship development offline already exist – they just need to be adapted for online.

Excerpt from review article by VentureBeat: "Upload your script, choose some backgrounds, and magically created a professional-looking storyboard of your movie. Or the graphic novel version of your text-based anything.
Amazon Studios released Storyteller today to allow writers and filmmakers to quickly, easily — and cheaply — storyboard their scripts.
Roy Price, Amazon’s director of Studios said: “Storyteller provides a digital backlot, acting troupe, prop department, and assistant editor — everything you need to bring your story to life.”
You start by uploading a script to Amazon Studios — or by playing with one that’s already there. Then simply page through the script paragraph by paragraph. Storyteller will try to match up characters, props, and background with the words in each chunk of text, and it does a surprisingly good job.
But if you don’t like what Storyteller gives, you can choose from its library, or even upload your own custom background or characters. Currently, the software has a library of thousands of props, characters, and backgrounds..."

Researchers at the University at Buffalo aredeveloping a “body area network” using ultrasonic waves and sensors to wirelessly share information between medical devices implanted in (or worn by) people to treat diseases such as diabetes and heart failure.
“This is a biomedical advancement that could revolutionize the way we care for people suffering from the major diseases of our time,” said Tommaso Melodia, PhD, UB associate professor of electrical engineering.
The idea of creating a network of wireless body sensors, also called a “body area network,” currently links sensors together via electromagnetic radio-frequency waves — similar to those used in cellular phones.
Radio waves have drawbacks such as the heat they generate, and because they propagate poorly through skin, muscle and other body tissue, they require relatively large amounts of energy, he said.
Ultrasound may be a more efficient way to share information, Melodia said, because roughly 65 percent of the body is composed of water. This suggests that medical devices, such as a pacemaker and an instrument that measures blood oxygen levels, could communicate more effectively via ultrasound compared to radio waves.
“Think of how the Navy uses sonar to communicate between submarines and detect enemy ships,” Melodia said. “It’s the same principle, only applied to ultrasonic sensors that are small enough to work together inside the human body and more effectively help treat diseases.”
Another example involves connecting blood glucose sensors with implantable insulin pumps. The sensors would monitor the blood and regulate, through the pumps, the dosage of insulin as needed in real time.

For those who have been actively tweeting during the 2013 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, Twitter may have made their 2013 ASCO experience a little different–researchers who did not know each other quickly started a conversation online, oncologists who missed a session found key data through a simple Twitter search, journalists realized it was so much easier to track down a spokesperson by sending a tweet, pharma companies were thrilled that resources dedicated to maintaining an active Twitter presence earned significant impressions.
Within the billions of daily comments from individuals across open social sources lies deep intelligence into markets, brands, patients, caregivers, healthcare providers and competitors. Several leading pharmaceutical companies are already using big data solutions to extract insights from the social realm. Applying these insights across a number of business functions empowers their decision-making with strategic understanding that digs deeper than ever before possible.
