Pharmaceutical Marketing in an Era of Continuous Change

Rosangela Checchia, Chief Executive Officer, Checon Pesquisa,

New York, NY, May 16, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - "We live in an environment of continuous change and unlimited access to knowledge. Given the regulatory issues, constraints and ethical aspects involved in the pharmaceutical industry, knowing how to act in this reality is critical," says Rosangela Checchia, Chief Executive Officer, Checon Pesquisa. There are new metrics in the market that can help pharmaceutical marketing executives overcome some of these challenges, increase profitability and become more accurate in decision-making, she adds.

From a research and consulting agency at the marcus evans PharmaBrand Summit 2012, in Munich, Germany, 11 - 13 June, Checchia shares her insights into pharmaceutical product marketing and how eye-tracking technologies can be effective in this arena.

- What would help pharmaceutical marketers make better decisions?

We live in very dynamic times, with the Internet and social media networks creating an environment of continuous change and unlimited access to information. Knowing how toact in this new reality is a challenge to all business areas, especially the pharmaceutical industry. In the BRIC countries, especially Brazil, organisations must understand the new Brazilian consumer, who is more educated, optimistic, affluent, informed and connected to the world than before, and therefore more demanding. New market research has made important contributions for more accurate decision-making.

- How can eye-tracking technology help pharmaceutical marketing be more effective?

This is an innovative measurement process with many possible applications. By examining fixations, saccades, pupil dilation, blinks and a variety of other behaviours, researchers can determine the effectiveness of a given medium or product.

Itis a considerable advantage to know what information has actually been perceived in graphic pieces, websites, portals, blogs, newspaper advertisements or publications, films, TV commercials, package designs or shelf displays. It is now possible to measure the retention time of someone's gaze and the sequence of images and content that is perceived and assimilated. This provides a huge step forward for the marketer to transcend from the realm of assumption (and guesswork) to that of highly precise and reliable measurement. Even information comprehension can be measured, signalling and indicating where there is a need for clearer and more objective language. All of these innovative results can add significant value to product and brand management, by providing insights into emotional responses and reactions.

- What initiatives work at establishing brand loyalty? What are consumers looking for?

Nowadays consumers take the quality of pharmaceutical products for granted. Prices must be within reason for companies to achieve their sales targets, but given the increasing commoditisation of products, brand importance has increased.

There is no magic formula for achieving brand loyalty or increasing market share, but new market research certainly helps us understand the different realities, cultures and needs (of countries, types of patients and communities) and provides us with a deeper understanding of all those involved in the relationship. Understanding and listeningto clients helps build loyalty, but this takes time, directed communication and research efforts on a broad spectrum.

We are beyond the era of asking, measuring and analysing. The future is about listening, co-creating and measuring emotions.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications. Cloud9 took the road less traveled and used WebRTC to create a downloadable enterprise-grade communications platform that is changing the communication dynamic in the financial sector. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
