Podcast: Patient Centricity & Pharma’s Reputation

Patient Centricity used to be a buzzword in that it was often mentioned but seldom practiced by pharma companies. A lot of progress has been made in the past years to achieve patient centricity, but not all drug companies have had much success. Unfortunately, that has had a negative impact on the industry's reputation.

An Rx Drug By Any Other Name Might Be Better for Medication Adherence

An Rx Drug By Any Other Name Might Be Better for Medication Adherence | Podcasts, Videos, Audio Snippets | Scoop.it

In this 5-minute audio snippet Pharmaguy discusses the absurdity of Rx drug names. The naming of drugs has been described both as a science and an art. Whichever, some say drug names are absurd. Drug names have been laughed at on Saturday Night Live and even cited as a reason why patients do not fill their prescriptions. And it all may be due to the overuse of 2 letters in the alphabet!

TransCelerating and Crowdsourcing Pharma R&D - A Critical Shift in Drug Development in the Post-Blockbuster World

TransCelerating and Crowdsourcing Pharma R&D - A Critical Shift in Drug Development in the Post-Blockbuster World | Podcasts, Videos, Audio Snippets | Scoop.it

Guests Thomas Krohn, Director, Clinical Open Innovation, Eli Lilly, Jerry Matczak, Community Manager for the Lilly Clinical Open Innovation Team, and Roland Andersson, Director for Accenture's Life Sciences R&D practice, discuss Lilly's Clinical Open Innovation project and the Transcelerate joint venture, both of which promote open source collaboration to speed development of new drugs.

Pharma Guy's insight:

According to MedCity News: 

 

Gerald “Jerry” Matczak, lead consultant in clinical innovation at Eli Lilly & Co., was a rare breed in the pharmaceutical world, someone who not only embraced social media, but also listened to activist patients.

 

Matczak died suddenly on Thursday at age 54. The cause of death was not immediately known.

 

“He didn’t show up to a meeting yesterday,” said Cathy Collette, an Indianapolis resident who advocates for patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). “It was definitely unexpected and sudden.”

 

According to his LinkedIn profile, Matczak was community manager in the Clinical Open Innovation group at Eli Lilly from 2011 to 2015 before being named a consultant in clinical innovation for the pharma giant.

 

Collette called Matczak a “wonderful liaison for the pharmaceutical industry” to patients, particularly those with rare and untreatable diseases. “Jerry understood the urgency,” she said.

Mobile-Enabled Patient Focus Groups Demonstrate the Importance of Patients' Voices | Podcasts, Videos, Audio Snippets | Scoop.it

WEGO Health (www.wegohealth.com), the first online home for consumer health opinion leaders,  announced a breakthrough in social consumer research with the introduction of Truvio (www.Truvio.com), the first influencer-powered, voice-response mobile research platform for the healthcare and biotechnology industries.

Truvio is powered by the WEGO Health Activist Network of more than 65,000 opted-in and vetted consumer health influencers from more than 130 health conditions and topics. Each WEGO Health Activist actively contributes to multiple online health communities. With Truvio, health consultants, researchers and companies can tap into the wisdom of these informed and passionate consumer health opinion leaders, getting on-demand feedback instead of waiting for more traditional research. Quantitative, Qualitative, and FAST Truvio's innovative mobile research platform accelerates the process of obtaining the true voice of health consumers, as the Truvio mobile platform collects results in real time and WEGO Health's hyper-engaged consumer influencer members respond quickly with informed opinions.

Health Activists complete quantitative surveys via their smartphone's keypad and are then prompted to provide qualitative comments verbally. This combination of mobile inputs improves response rates and delivers deeper results on topics that are mission-critical to researchers in a way that no standalone survey or focus group could deliver.

"Health is really social media's higher calling and with Truvio, consumer health influencers are empowered to become change agents for the millions of patients who follow them," said WEGO Health CEO Jack Barrette. "Advances in healthcare can't wait. Truvio connects industry and influencers -- fast -- in a way that benefits both."

Warren Goes After Gottlieb Regarding Drug Safety

Warren Goes After Gottlieb Regarding Drug Safety | Podcasts, Videos, Audio Snippets | Scoop.it

At his April 5, 2017, Senate Hearing, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, President Trump's nominee for FDA Commissioner, responded to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's concern about his commitment to FDA's basic safety mission.

 

Listen to the exchange between Warren and Gottlieb in this 4.5-minute audio excerpt: http://bit.ly/warren-v-gott-snippet

 

Some Background

Senator Warren cited Gottlieb's comments about how the thalidomide "episode" had a lasting effect on the FDA's work. The comments appeared in a 2012 article titled "Changing the FDA's Culture." Relevant excerpts from that article include:

 

"The thalidomide episode also had a more subtle influence on the way the FDA goes about its work: It focused the agency's attention on a certain category of risks in which the problems are latent, meaning they do not become manifest until many months, and perhaps years, after exposure to a drug."

 

"This is more or less how the FDA understands its own review culture - as devoted to averting risks and protecting the public, and as being very good at doing so. This devotion comes with some downsides, to be sure: In so heavily prioritizing one of its obligations - the protection of consumers - the FDA has sometimes subordinated and neglected its other key obligation, which is to guide new medical innovations to market."

 

[Speaking at a recent conference in Seattle, Dr. Margaret Chan, director of the World Health Organization, warned against loosening the rules governing the safety and effectiveness data that drug companies must supply to win marketing approval from the FDA. Read “WHO Rebukes Trump’s FDA Critics. It’s Not a Question – It’s a Statement!”; http://sco.lt/90TQi9].

Podcast: Pharma YouTube - Successful Use of Online Video to Support Patients

Podcast: Pharma YouTube - Successful Use of Online Video to Support Patients | Podcasts, Videos, Audio Snippets | Scoop.it

Pharmaceutical marketers have a wealth of experience producing videos for direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising (in the U.S.) and disease-awareness piblic service messages worldwide. It's no surprise, therefore, that the Dose of Digital's Pharma and Healthcare Social Media Wiki includes dozens of pharma YouTube channels, or what I like to call "YouPharma".

 

The Johnson & Johson family of companies, which includes Janssen UK, have been the leaders in launching branded and unbranded YouTube channels. This show features two of the best examples of that. Gary Monk is the person responsible for Janssen-Cilag's "Living with ADHD" YouTube site, which features a video is entitled "ADHD: A day in the life by Janssen-Cilag Ltd." Rob Halper is the person who single-handedly maintains the J&J Health Channel on YouTube, which is a non-branded site with the goal of presenting a better understanding of health and health care issues.

 

 

Questions/Topics Discussed

 

  • Describe your YouTube campaign/channel. Who is the intended audience(s)?
  • How did you get internal buy in for your digital video campaign?
  • How do you define "engagement" with patients via your YouTube channel? Do you allow comments?
  • What's your measure(s) of success?
