For digital health to be more widely implemented across the healthcare industry, smaller biopharma companies must be the first to demonstrate its efficacy.

At DIA 2018, We’re All About Experience – the Patient’s & Yours

By Aaron Fleishman on Wed, Jun 20, 2018 | 2 min read

 

 

For those of us in the clinical R&D industry, this is among the most exciting (and busiest) times of the year. I’m talking, of course, about the Drug Information Association (DIA) Annual Meeting, June 24-28 in Boston.

With industry stakeholders gathering in our own backyard to exchange ideas in the pursuit of developing new therapies and accelerating efforts to enhance health and well-being, we could not be more thrilled. Ask anyone who has attended the DIA in the past, and they will tell you that it’s an occasion where a lot of exciting work gets done in a very short period of time.

Every year that we attend the DIA, we do our best to honor the spirit of the occasion and to acknowledge the importance of our industry colleagues working together in such a dynamic setting. This year, it is our goal to provide an experience that demonstrates our commitment to the patients who make clinical research possible.

Clinical Trial Advertisers: Take Note of These Digital Trends

By BBK Worldwide on Tue, Jun 5, 2018 | 3 min read

The way people consume media is changing. With a projected 237.6 million estimated smartphone users by the end of 2018 in the United States alone (an increase of 13.3 million users from last year), the way people are accessing information is increasingly going mobile. Additionally, the Pew Research Center suggests that 64 percent of Americans between the ages 50 to 64 are using social media, preferring mediums like Facebook and YouTube. While the clinical trial industry is known to be slow in adopting newer technologies, the implications of these observed trends for patient recruitment speak for themselves. To get a closer look at the impact of digital media on clinical trial advertising, we spoke with our Director of Media and Research Sarah Mandracchia for her insights on some of the tactics and strategies that are shaping direct-to-consumer outreach in 2018.

GDPR: Its Intent – and Its Integrity

By Rob Laurens on Wed, May 23, 2018 | 2 min read

There are probably a good number of us in the clinical research and development industry that are spending a lot of time dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on their Privacy Policies and otherwise ensuring that everything is ready for the 25th of May, the day that the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect. And, there are probably a good number of us who have had a rather intense schedule over the past few months. But, I bet if you conducted a poll, you’d find that despite all the time-consuming work and activity, those of us concerned with the patient experience are greatly pleased that GDPR is finally here.

Agree or Disagree: Qualified Referrals Keep Sites Engaged

By BBK Worldwide on Wed, May 2, 2018 | 1 min read

 

While sites should be held accountable for processing the referrals that are generated from clinical trial advertising, it is very important that these referrals are qualified so that sites are not wasting their time. Therefore, generating highly qualified referrals is the number one contributing factor to site engagement.
