It’s pharma’s turn to inspire.

While some leaders have doubled down on patient centricity, elevating the function to the executive committee, our research has revealed warning signs of fatigue. Across patient centricity veterans, to those not yet convinced, people are frustrated that year after year we return to the same issues. The reality is: without concrete progress, patient centricity could lose steam, and pharma may fail to seize it’s biggest opportunity for patient value.

At a moment in which our research is also uncovering promising stories of progress, concrete improvements through digital innovation, and the development of robust models to demonstrate ROI, it would be a huge collective failure to ignore how far we’ve come. The way we see it is the conversation must catch up to the progress that we are seeing on the ground. Our commitment for the next edition of the Patient Summit USA is to cut the rhetoric and lay out a concise roadmap for action.

5 years ago, I connected with Paul Simms at eyeforpharma. After our first conversation, I was actually shaking... could it be possible that someone had actually crafted an event that included all areas of the healthcare space AND embraced the patient perspective? He had, and it was an honour and privilege to attend. This year, I am in awe of the progress that has been made. The patient voice is loud, strong and utterly respected. Please lend your voice to this wonderful chorus of compassion. Heidi Floyd
Patient Advocate
