Social Media in the Pharma Industry, are you Listening?

Neill Howard (SMi Conferences) - 31 October 2018

Understanding your audience through digital channels is key in today's healthcare world, as patients are using devices and moving more onto online communications to contact and find information from GP's and industry professionals. The 11th annual Social Media in the Pharmaceutical Industry conference will explore the digital innovations and strategies within pharma and how to keep the patient at the forefront.

Gain techniques in digital strategies as Jacob Flindt, Founder, presents how to personalise content relationships with artificial intelligence. Personalising content to the individual without unnecessary repetition is key to a lasting relationship. He will also examine why the main relationship doctors want with pharma is to feel safe prescribing treatments. AI can capture patterns about each doctor and speed up learning the path to prescriptions. 
Jacob will be joined by a panel of Pharma Social Media experts including:

Lin Lei, Associate Director, Digital Customer Engagement, Teva
Roeland van der Heiden, Digital Director, AstraZeneca 
Doris Casares, Director, Communication, Corporate Social Responsibility and AZ Foundation, AstraZeneca
