    Just What the Dr Ordered for UK Life Sciences? The 2nd Life Sciences Sector Deal
    Erik Nordkamp, GM UK, Pfizer, Dr Keri Torney, Deputy Director Life Sciences, NHS England, Angela McFarlane, IQVIA Recorded: Feb 7 2019 73 mins
    Brexit uncertainty isn’t going away any time soon – but it’s important to remember that the UK government has already set out two plans for the future shape of the country’s healthcare industry: the second Life Sciences Sector Deal and the long-term plan for the NHS.

    With these two plans in place there are plenty of opportunities for the industry and the government to work together to keep the UK at the top of the international life sciences sector – and perhaps reach even greater heights.

    This pharmaphorum webinar, held in partnership with IQVIA, will analyse the current and future landscape for UK life sciences as well as what steps have been taken so far to boost the sector.

    Panellists from across the industry will look at the challenges presented by the current situation with Brexit and how the 10-Year Plan and the Sector Deal 2 (or 2018) play into this. They will discuss the positive steps taken by the government to prepare NHS innovation for a radically different future and make sure the UK remains an attractive location for ongoing inward investment from global pharma.

    Topics to be covered include:

    •Highlights of the 10-Year Plan and the second Sector Deal
    •Progress with the current Life Sciences Industrial Strategy, the Sector Deal and plans for 2019
    •The NHS innovation uptake agenda
    •Maintaining UK attractiveness for inward global pharma and biotech investment
  • Cancer, genomics and personalised medicine: Modelling the future of oncology
    Cancer, genomics and personalised medicine: Modelling the future of oncology
    Danyi Wen, Shanghai LIDE Biotech, Stefan Jellbauer, Mitra Biotech, Lakshmi Santhosh Maithel, Repositi Recorded: Jan 29 2019 61 mins
    The prevalence of cancer is currently predicted to be higher than ever. Current statistics show 1 in 2 people in the UK and 1 in 2 men/1 in 3 women in the US will experience it at some stage in their lives. And yet the picture for patients is an improving one.

    The move towards immunotherapies heralds much promise and this is potentially just the beginning. As cancer is understood increasingly not by type, or even tumour type but specific mutation the era of personalised oncological therapies is visible.
    To delve further into this pharmaphorum is pleased to present an exclusive online discussion.

    Bringing together experts at the cutting edge of this field it aims to interrogate where we are in terms of this shift towards personalised oncology, what this means in terms of the development pathway and looks at the approaches which could (and will) fully evolve the way that cancer treatments are developed in terms of efficacy, approach and outcome.

    this free to attend event will cover a number of topics critical to the future of oncology including:
    •The changing face of cancer: how do we define it now?
    •Personalised medicine in practice – where are we now in cancer?
    •What are the implications from these changes for clinical trials?
    •How the shift towards cancer as a phenotype/genotype is being applied in clinical trials and how they are run
    •What are co-clinical trials and why could they hold the key to answering unmet need in cancer treatment and beyond into broader drug development?
    •Modelling for the future of cancer – can this be done for personalised therapies?
  • Metrics to meaning: demonstrating the value of medical communications
    Metrics to meaning: demonstrating the value of medical communications
    Scott McGregor, Allergan, Lynda Chang, Complete HealthVizion, David Pearce, Complete HealthVizion, Dominic Tyer, pharmaphorum Recorded: Jan 23 2019 62 mins
    Medical affairs and publications teams are under increasing pressure to demonstrate effectively the success of the medical communications activities they undertake.

    Naturally, there are a huge number of metrics that could be used to measure and demonstrate medical communications value. The challenge is to identify, and track, those metrics that really matter, and ensure this information is interpreted effectively.

    This pharmaphorum webinar, which will be held in partnership with Complete HealthVizion, will look at how to measure medical communications activities, how to continue with what is successful and how to change what isn’t working.

    This means identifying what can be measured, both in terms of reach and engagement as well as behavioural impact, deciding what ‘great’ looks like and how best to define success.

    The expert panel will also look at how behavioural science can provide a framework to develop smarter communications and, ultimately, drive better patient outcomes.

    This Metrics to Meaning webinar will take place on Wednesday, 23rd January, at 15:00 pm GMT (10:00 EST) and will teach you how to measure the effectiveness of different types of medical communications programmes.

    Interacting with the panel will also allow you to learn about a range of practical approaches to implementing metrics, including:

    • Innovative ways to measure medical communications value and success
    • How to help medical affairs and publications teams demonstrate greater value
    • How to optimise tactical outputs year on year
    • The importance of demonstrating and measuring behavioural change

    In doing so they will also discuss the role of behaviour and the implications of this for measuring success.

  • The devil’s in the e-detail: what HCPs really want from you
    The devil’s in the e-detail: what HCPs really want from you
    Heiko Schmidt, Integrated Multichannel Marketing and Sales, Bayer, Sari Ruth Carter, Head of Marketing, Anthill Agency Recorded: Dec 6 2018 68 mins
    Overview:
    Communication; we all do it, it is a critical part of effective business practice and in this pharma is no exception.

    It is no secret that for pharma companies, face time with healthcare professionals (HCPs) has reduced drastically over the last 10 years while the cost of in person engagements has increased significantly.

    Like any customer their expectations for the content they receive have changed, with a focus on useful, succinct and easy to consume materials rather than the sales materials of old.

    So what is it that HCPs want and through this lens, what is it that pharma should be doing?

    The evidence points towards creating meaningful two-way conversations through multiple channels, connecting otherwise siloed touchpoints with and for HCPs in the process.

    For the past 40 years detailing has been the backbone of pharma/HCP communication – but what about e-Detailing? Is it just detailing on an ipad or is it supposed to be something more? How does this fit and what is possible, and more importantly desirable?

    To analyse the current situation and present practical insights, pharmaphorum presents a new free to attend digital debate. Working with our partner Anthill agency we have put together a panel of leading experts from Bayer and Anthill.

    This debate will cover:

    •What is the current landscape for optimal HCP communication?
    •What is the future in terms of HCP channel preference?
    •New technologies in pharma marketing that help you to better engage with HCPs and extend HCP reach – AI, chatbots, self-detailing
    •How to reach more HCPs, when, where and how they want
    •How to overcome low content usage by HCPs
    •The most common challenges for traditional eDetailing effectiveness
    •How to achieve better communication without having to reinvent the wheel
    •How to activate your existing content and reach all customers willing to engage with your brand, regardless of their preference.
  • Can simulated datasets unlock the potential of patient data?
    Can simulated datasets unlock the potential of patient data?
    Jem Rashbass, Health Data Insight, Chris Carrigan, use MY data, Adam Reich, IQVIA, Dominic Tyer, pharmaphorum Recorded: Nov 27 2018 68 mins
    Patient level data offers the promise of insights which can craft new and better pathways, enable development of innovative therapies and treatments, and of course identify and prevent diseases much earlier in their lifecycle.

    One area of particular interest is cancer. However, in trying to realise the potential, the health sector is faced with the conundrum of protecting patients’ identities, while at the same time allowing doctors access to their data and enabling industry to benefit from vital insights into the disease.

    This presents a paradox, as the UK has some of the best healthcare data in the world, however, accessing the data can be challenging and time consuming due to patient confidentiality checks.

    So, what is the solution?

    IQVIA brings a unique perspective to this event, having partnered with Health Data Insight to develop an innovative solution to this seemingly intractable problem: Simulacrum, a database comprised of only artificial data that is modelled on real patient data collected by the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) in England.

    Simulacrum has already produced identical results to the real data when predicting incidence of tumours in the population, whilst simultaneously removing any risk of breaching patient confidentiality.

    In this webinar, IQVIA and pharmaphorum will also provide advice to industry, patient advocacy groups and healthcare professionals on how to leverage Simulacrum, and utilise this simulated dataset to facilitate access to England’s world-leading healthcare data, while complying with regulations designed to protect and maintain individual confidentiality.
  • Digital therapeutics and healthcare innovation
    Digital therapeutics and healthcare innovation
    Roberto Ascione, Healthware International, Megan Coder, Digital Therapeutics Alliance, Pierre Leurent, Voluntis Recorded: Oct 12 2018 70 mins
    Digital technology is transforming the way that healthcare is practiced and delivered, with areas like digital therapeutics forging ahead to complement traditional medical approaches and augment patient care.

    The development of software applications that are available with a prescription took a major step forward last year with the first FDA approval for a mobile medical application with both a safety and efficacy label.

    At the same time as digital therapeutics are breaking new ground there’s a whole ecosystem of digital health innovations that are also tackling healthcare issues in new and imaginative ways.

    From doctor-patient communication to managing healthcare costs, from healthcare monitoring to clinician workflow, the range of digital health tools and services available is rapidly expanding.

    We’ll be looking at how digital and traditional approaches to medicine are being combined to improve patient outcomes.

    This free webinar will also see our expert panel:
    •Consider the current state of play with digital therapeutics and what the future holds for them
    •Discuss how to harness healthcare innovations to involve and engage patients
  • Realising the biotech promise: addressing the path to market
    Realising the biotech promise: addressing the path to market
    Steve Bates, BIA, Sheela Upadhyaya, NICE, Fred Jacobs, TYG, Dean Summerfield, IQVIA Recorded: Oct 9 2018 72 mins
    Now more than ever before, Biotech is the engine for innovation in medicine, finding, creating and delivering ground-breaking treatments to patients.

    The journey from molecule discovery and development through valuation, funding, regulatory and commercialisation can be a long and complex road to travel though.

    These companies have to navigate a rapidly changing and increasingly complex landscape from pre-clinical valuation through foresight and planning at every stage of the asset life cycle - and at a time when Brexit adds uncertainty about regulatory approval and launch windows.

    Working with IQVIA, pharmaphorum has assembled a specialist panel to discuss these challenges and the most effective routes to overcoming them.

    On Tuesday 9th October at 15:00 BST / 10:00 EST we will present a free-to-attend online debate which will bring these experts together to deliver insight on topics such as market valuation, financing, navigating regulatory hurdles, patient engagement & HTA strategies through to successful commercialisation.

  • Engaging with HCPS: what do HCPs want from medical meetings?
    Engaging with HCPS: what do HCPs want from medical meetings?
    Aoife Delmas, European Society of Cardiology, Katie Koziol and Andrew Moore, Ashfield Meetings & Events Recorded: Jun 26 2018 65 mins
    There has been a myriad of reasons over the past few years to safely assume the popularity and perceived worth of face-to-face medical meetings was well and truly on the decline – from advances in technology, to funding challenges.

    Separate, yet complementary studies looking at global HCP preferences reveals that the medical meeting is in fact their preferred channel for scientific communications.

    Yet a 2018 study by Ashfield looking at global HCP preferences reveals that the medical meeting is in fact their preferred channel for scientific communications.

    Furthermore, HCPs exhibit consumer behaviours in selecting and attending events – which means that while these conferences offer potential engagement riches, they have to offer a specific mix of focus, value and ROI to be successful. To analyse this situation, discuss the learnings from the research and offer guidance on what a modern medical meeting needs to be we present an exclusive debate.

    Bringing together experts from Ashfield Meetings & Events and the European Society of Cardiology our panel will discuss:

    1. Findings from the 2018 Ashfield Science of HCP Meetings research and whitepaper
    2. How HCPs want to engage with pharma and scientific communications
    3. What works? How to create the events that HCPs want to attend
    4. The future of meetings - balancing face to face and digital
    5. How HCPs determine whether a meeting is likely to be worth the investment
    6. Strategies and tactics for planners and meeting stakeholders to implement to continue to add value for HCPs attending medical meetings

    Searching for drug safety and benefit-risk evaluations
    Dr. Jean-Dominique Pierret, Scientific Information Expert Recorded: Apr 25 2018 56 mins
    Scientific literature is one of the largest source of adverse event reports, making it an essential part of pharmacovigilance. Marketing authorization holders are expected to perform systematic literature searches using reference databases and local journals from countries where the medicinal product has a marketing authorization. The retrieved information needs to be collated, analyzed, and communicated at least once a week. However, several challenges are associated with this process. Large amounts of data from various sources, various regulatory requirements, building and maintaining search strategies increase the complexity of literature searches.

    In this webinar, Scientific Information Expert Dr. Jean-Dominique Pierret will give a brief overview of regulatory obligations and usefulness of literature in the drug development process. And then he will introduce how he set up literature search for pharmacovigilance: such as selecting the databases, building the strategy with a focus on early detection of safety issue and benefit/risk assessment. Finally, he will give examples of challenges that may occur during literature search for pharmacovigilance.

  • Digital health: how can technology be used to engage hard-to-reach patients?
    Digital health: how can technology be used to engage hard-to-reach patients?
    Trishna Bharadia, MS patient advocate, Jo Sopala, MS Trust, Rachel Morrison, NHS Western Isles Recorded: Apr 20 2018 65 mins
    Helping someone live with a condition as complex as MS can be fraught with challenges.

    MS professionals are asked to manage multiple physical and psychological symptoms while following complicated drug monitoring regimes, all in the face of shirking resources and growing caseloads.

    As the burden of monitoring people on disease modifying therapies has grown, a corresponding lack of resource for symptom management has led to inequity of services for those with progressive disease.
    Across the UK, however, technology is being used to overcome these obstacles, by erasing geographic boundaries and expanding access.

    From conducting video consultations to setting up online peer support groups, digital health can and is being utilised to improve services for everyone.

    As part of the Quality in the Delivery of Services (QuDoS) in MS recognition programme, a panel of experts will discuss how to meet the information, support and engagement needs of people living with MS through technology.

    The live webinar, produced by pharmaphorum with the support of the MS Trust and Biogen, will feature the views of patients and professionals alike.

    The panel, which will include Jo Sopala, Director of Development at the MS Trust, will discuss using digital health to:
    -Increase patient access to quality, trusted information through digital translation services
    -Offer greater support through online peer support and symptom management apps
    -Boost adherence through electronic reminder systems
    -Increase involvement in clinical trials through wearable technologies
    -Increase access to services through remote appointments

  • Navigating new frontiers: Ways to find space in the future RA market
    Navigating new frontiers: Ways to find space in the future RA market
    Helen Parfitt, Head of Therapy Watch, Research Partnership, Mariel Metcalfe and Mark Hollis, Research Partnership Mar 21 2019 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has been a major growth driver for the pharmaceutical industry over the last 15 years, led by AbbVie’s blockbuster anti-TNF inhibitor treatment Humira (adalimumab).

    The emergence of low-cost biosimilar versions of Humira and the new janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors, are shaking up a once-stable market.

    Although there are only two drugs in this class available in the region – Eli Lilly’s Olumiant (baricitinib) and Pfizer’s Xeljanz (tofacitinib) – this is not likely to be the case for much longer, as several other candidates reach late-stage development.

    Analysis of Therapy Watch data, a real-time' syndicated market tracking tool from Research Partnership, shows that JAK inhibitors have already made a strong impression in the European RA market, where their convenient oral administration advantage may override cost considerations that would otherwise favour biosimilar uptake.

    This pharmaphorum webinar, held in conjunction with Research Partnership, will use the latest intelligence from both physicians and patients to look at emerging trends in the RA market, how these will shape the RA market of tomorrow and how companies can best position themselves for future success.

    This webinar will provide an opportunity to interact with the panel about how companies can best harness the potential of this increasingly complex, but highly rewarding, market.

    Topics to be covered include:

    The European RA market
    Current status and market situation of JAK inhibitors (key EU5 countries)
    Uptake curve of JAKs compared to other new entrants and biosimilars
    Profile of physicians prescribing JAKS
    Country differences
    The future of new classes of JAK inhibitors
