Patient value has now become synonymous with business value. Companies listening to the growing patient voice and incorporating those insights into the design of products, trials and strategy are being rewarded with higher uptake and better outcomes. 

Fortunately for pharma, it’s never been easier to speak to patients. Digital avenues, social media engaged advocacy groups and, most importantly, a receptive audience means pharma has the opportunity and the technology to interact with patients and build what they want.

Opportunities are aplenty for those willing to walk the talk on patient engagement. Are you a walker or a talker?

Make sure you are one of the 300+ senior clinical and commercial pharma executives, advocates and patients who will come together to drive change at the Patient Summit USA.

 

Key themes:

  • Patient Critical = Business Critical – Recognize that patient value translates to business value - maximize social benefits to maximize your performance
  • Clear the clinical bottleneck  – Reimagine your clinical trials through innovative patient focused design and the removal of antiquated endpoints
  • Work with patients, not for patients – Co-create solutions with patients in order to generate maximum uptake
  • Informed patients are stronger partners – Promote health literacy to build an educated patient population who can supercharge your efforts

Our Patient Promise

This patient focus has become commonplace over the past few years, and it’s easy to think that it’s a straightforward thing to do. But patient focus runs much deeper than that; it is not simply compassion. 

As an organiser of industry events and published articles, we have a responsibility to ensure the patient voice is heard and understood. We also have an opportunity to magnify the patient voice so it can be received by many. So the involvement of patients in our conferences is essential.

To create this Patient Policy, we have consulted with patients to understand how to accommodate everyone at our events (click the below image for more details). 

 

eyeforpharma Patient Policy: Free patient passes at all events; eyeforpharma Awards dedicated to patient initiatives; Patient speakers at every event; We strive to meet ‘Patients Included’ criteria; Events designed with patients input; Patient advocate columnists and co-created content

An idea was born

In March 2018, we had an idea.

Let’s host a pharmaceutical conference - except this time, patients will be the designers, creators and hosts!

Rationale

There are plenty of pharmaceutical conferences, many of which claim to be ‘patient-centric’.

However, they are all run with one basic assumption: that pharma companies know what patients want, and that pharma companies should set the agenda.

We think this doesn’t go far enough.

Beyond Conferences

The Im-patient Conference is new and its bold. No longer is eyeforpharma HQ in the driving seat, instead it is entirely designed, created and hosted by patients.

We hope in-doing so to capture the essence of patient-centricty throughout core of the event.
