Back for it’s 17th year: Where Patient Centric Leaders Formulate Strategy

300+ Attendees

40+ Speakers

25+ Pharma case studies

80+ Exhibitors

100+ Hours of Research

91% Senior leaders

Everyone works in patient engagement now.

We no longer need convincing that patient value translates to business value. Companies listening to the growing patient voice, incorporating those insights into the design of products, trials and strategy are being rewarded with higher uptake and better outcomes.

 The challenge now is to create a best-practice blueprint for a patient centric strategy to affirm patient centricity as the priority for every team in your company.

Join us at North America's most influential patient meeting to discover how industry leaders and advocates are moving the needle. You'll see best-in-class case studies on effective digital patient-led services, forging successful partnerships with advocacy groups, disrupting trials and solving health literacy problems to make this the most beneficial 2 days you spend out of the office this year.

eyeforpharma represents a unique opportunity for pharma professionals focused on patient support & engagement to come together and move the industry forward. Jason DeGoes

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

Nothing about us, without us!

At eyeforpharma, we practice what we preach. The Patient Summit agenda was developed with patients, will be delivered with patients, with audience participation form patients.
