If you don’t partner well, patient centricity will never be more than ‘just an idea’.

After all, true patient centricity means going beyond the needs of your company and working with stakeholders to harness the greatest value possible.

For 15 years, the Patient Summit has championed engagement and advocacy. Now we go back to our roots as the definitive platform to bring together patients and industry in an environment that fosters natural co-creation and insight.

Key themes for 2018

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

IWe 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 believe that in doing so, we will capture the true essence of what patients want – and put them in the driving seat.
