  • A Risk Adaptive Approach to Data Protection
    A Risk Adaptive Approach to Data Protection
    Karlene Berger, Director Product Marketing Recorded: Jan 15 2020 9 mins
    One of the biggest challenges in Data Security is protecting critical data in a way that doesn’t frustrate users, overwhelm admins or mistake malicious action for normal employee behavior.

    Risk-adaptive protection dynamically applies monitoring and enforcement controls to protect data, based on the calculated behavioral risk level of users and the value of data accessed. Risk levels are driven up and down based on user behavior, with each person having a unique risk level.

    Learn more about how taking a risk-adaptive approach combined with behavioral analytics can enable your security to fluctuate based on the threat environment.

    EMEA: From Reactive to Proactive Data Protection
    Dr. Chris Boorman, Security Evangelist, Forcepoint & Mike Smart, Director Product Marketing, Forcepoint Recorded: Dec 4 2019 19 mins
    In today’s world, organisations typically audit data access and use rather than enforcing protection policies. As a result, security teams spend their energy investigating data incidents, identifying breaches and cleaning up after the incident. But with a greater focus on how organizations are protecting data and responding to regulations, can we move to a world where we actually stop data breaches from occurring but without impacting the productivity of the workforce?

    In this session, Security Evangelist Chris Boorman and Director of Product Marketing Mike Smart, analyse this challenge using the Data Protection Maturity Curve and map how organisations can move from the Data Swamp, through Visibility and Analysis to a state of Proactive Automation.

  • The Science of Healthcare Congresses
    The Science of Healthcare Congresses
    Eva Thalmann, Janssen, Jean-Yves Douillard, ESMO, Katie Koziol and Andrew Moore, Ashfield Meetings & Events Recorded: Dec 3 2019 70 mins
    Research from Ashfield Meetings & Events clearly demonstrates that face-to-face meetings and events form a major part of continuing medical education (CME). National and international congresses have been identified as the primary event to attend by HCPs.

    But what makes congresses such a valuable education channel for time-restricted physicians? This pharmaphorum webinar, in association with Ashfield Meetings & Events, will dive into a unique study of HCP educational and behavioural preferences towards attendance at medical congresses.

    Ashfield Meetings & Events’ The Science of Healthcare Congresses study, involved over 200 HCPs, drawn from a range of therapy areas, from both Europe and the US to ask what really matters to them and share some intriguing insights.

    These encompassed how HCPs value this type of activity, how they apportion their time on-site and engage with the healthcare industry, and how they evaluate a congress once its doors have closed for another year.

    Join our expert panel on Tuesday 3rd December to find out more on:

    • Why physicians attend congresses
    • How to ensure medical education provides value to attendees
    • How pharma can enhance industry symposia

    In addition, our panel will also share the results of an ongoing association and multi-pharmaceutical company research project, designed to standardise and benchmark the evaluation process of all congress medical education activities.
  • How to apply global brand strategies to every customer interaction
    How to apply global brand strategies to every customer interaction
    Massimiliano Siciliano, Grunenthal, Kasper Jerlang, LEO Pharma, Alejandra Betancourt, Anthill Agency, Dom Tyer, pharmaphorum Recorded: Nov 28 2019 62 mins
    Pharmaceutical companies spend a huge amount of time and resources on creating valuable brand strategies, but when they come to life there’s often a disconnect.

    Strategy and execution can easily drift apart when tactics come to life, making it harder for them to drive business and deliver on the long-term action plans to engage with healthcare professionals.

    This is as true for eDetailing or closed-loop marketing initiatives as it is for multichannel marketing strategies that encompass the latest chatbot technology or innovative digital content platforms.

    To remedy this, those working in pharma on multichannel marketing, brand planning and digital need to apply the human factor to their global brand strategies to achieve the kind of tactics that deliver on strategic goals.

    Focus

    Join Anthill on Thursday 28th November from 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET for a live expert panel discussion on multichannel marketing, brand planning and how to apply global brand strategies in pharma to every customer interaction for greater HCP reach and return-on-investment.

    In addition to looking at brand planning across pharma, common frustrations for the industry and whether or not brand planning is set up to deliver good multichannel marketing, the webinar will also cover:

    • The most common challenges in the brand planning process
    • How to build executional and strategic understanding across an entire brand plan
    • How to activate your existing channels and create the best channel mix for customers
    • How insight-based multichannel marketing can drive strategy and build new insights for the future

    The pharmaceutical industry has been making great progress in its digital transformation, but boundaries are there to be pushed if companies want to continue to innovate their marketing practices and processes.

  • Viral Safety by Design for Cell and Gene Therapy Products
    Viral Safety by Design for Cell and Gene Therapy Products
    Mark Plavsic, Chief Technology Officer at Lysogene & Archie Lovatt, Life Sciences Biosafety Scientific Director at SGS Recorded: Nov 11 2019 67 mins
    Together with product efficacy, product safety is an essential characteristic of any medicinal product including cell and gene therapy (C&GT) biologics. Adventitious agents (viruses, bacteria, mycoplasma, prions, etc) pose constant risk to these biologics, and, as such they may impact directly product and patient safety. It is therefore of supreme importance to intentionally (by design) employ effective measures across the whole C&GT product manufacturing process to mitigate risk of adventitious agents. This presentation will review various interconnected steps throughout the manufacturing process, from the raw materials to the fill and finish, that would, in concert, help mitigate the risk while providing a high degree of product safety by design.

    Why Use Raman Microscopy for Pharmaceutical Forensics?
    by Dr. Robert Heintz, Senior Applications Specialist at Thermo Fisher Scientific

    Raman microscopy is uniquely suited for providing essential information for pharmaceutical forensic applications. The use of visible lasers allows for analysis of very small samples with spatial resolutions down to a micron or better. Materials can be analyzed in glass containers and through transparent packaging. Mapping and imaging provides information on the spatial distribution of components as well as particle sizes and shapes. Confocal operation allows for probing inside transparent materials and analyze different layers or inclusions without the need to cut or cross-section the sample. Raman microscopy is non-destructive and preserves the sample for further analysis. Raman spectra can be used not only for the conformation of expected components but also the identification of unknown contaminants or impurities. Spectral features are very sensitive to molecular structure and can be used to distinguish polymorphs and other very chemically similar materials.

  • Cost & Management of Oncology Combination Regimens
    Cost & Management of Oncology Combination Regimens
    Marcia Palmer, Allen W. Becker, Anthony Chiefari, Howard Deutsch, Nicolle Hamilton, ZS Associates Recorded: Oct 30 2019 88 mins
    Overview
    Oncology treatment increasingly involves combinations of novel oral and biologic drugs. While combo approaches aren’t new, there are significant cost implications of combining high priced innovator drugs (versus older, generic chemotherapies).

    Payers are in a difficult spot regarding the cost and management of these regimens. Traditional utilization management tools are still difficult to apply in oncology, given no payer wants to be on the front page of a major newspaper for denying treatment. Pathways have not held up to their promise for containing cost.

    Personalized medicine approaches such as biomarkers serve an important role in targeting therapy to the most appropriate patients, thereby reigning in cost. However, there are limitations in the breadth and utility of these tools. For example, PD-1/PDL-1 drugs have shown conflicting outcomes associated with receptor expression – and these drugs are the backbone for many combo regimen programs in clinical development.

    Environment/perception shifts, new approaches to management, indication-based pricing or other novel pricing approaches, and innovative payment models may hold promise for controlling cost in this new era of combination therapy.

    Focus
    Join ZS Associates for a live expert payer panel discussion on the challenges and potential solutions for managing the cost of combo oncology regimens. Topics will include:

    •Perspectives on oncology drug management and combination regimen pricing today
    •Potential payer-driven and pharma-driven solutions to price and cost management for oncology combo regimens
    •What oncology manufacturers should consider in engaging payers in the future

    The live payer webinar, co-moderated by Nicolle Hamilton, ZS Associates and Dominic Tyer, pharmaphorum, will take place on Wednesday, October 30 2019 from 14:00-15:15 GMT/10:00-11:15 ET.

  • Launch excellence in a disrupted world – challenges & opportunities
    Launch excellence in a disrupted world – challenges & opportunities
    Yasemin Karanis, Sarah Rickwood, Alexandra Smith, Markus Gores, IQVIA, Bill McClellan, IQVIA, Paul Tunnah, pharmaphorum Recorded: Sep 11 2019 70 mins
    Overview

    The launch environment has undergone huge changes as the pharmaceutical industry’s focus has moved from primary care to specialty launch, but its future will be transformed even more radically.

    The advent of highly novel cell and gene therapies as well as prescription digital therapeutics is providing a serious set of forces for change in the market.

    Another comes from the challenges developed markets face, which renews the urgency for pharma companies to spread their launch successes beyond traditionally core markets.

    The pressures exerted by these forces require companies’ efforts in launch excellence to be able to ‘square the circle’ of better launch returns even as the launch environment becomes ever-more complex.

    To make sense of this landscape, this pharmaphorum webinar – in association with IQVIA – will look at the past, present and future of pharmaceutical launches. The event takes place on Wednesday 11th September from 11:00-12:00 BST.

    Focus
    •Traditional launch approaches: In the past, launch was defined as being the first two years of a product’s existence on the market. This is still a crucial time for any product’s launch, however, in an increasingly multi-indicational world, for many products, launch is no longer a one-off event.

    •Current best practice in launch: Which launches have been the most commercially successful in recent years? By using IQVIA data the webinar will provide a unique view of the way in which commercial success has changed and look at what has driven the high-fliers.

    •Future of launch excellence. The nature of innovation is changing very rapidly, and with it, both what is defined as launch, and the key capabilities and resources required for excellent launches. IQVIA experts will outline how to prepare for the future of launch excellence.

    Innovative contracting in Europe – a Trojan horse?
    Smita Sealey and Barry Farimond, ZS Associates, Malcolm Qualie, NHS England, Alain Boulanger, Filippo Drago Recorded: Sep 2 2019 64 mins
    Overview

    With pricing of drugs at the centre of political and social debate, the market access and pricing environment in Europe has become increasingly challenging over the years. Innovative contracting has since become a common route to overcome these challenges and ensure timely access for patients.


    Focus

    Join us on Monday 2nd September from 15:00-16:00 BST as we discuss the future of innovative contracting with our panel of European payers. Key topics to be covered include:

    To what extent and how contracting helps improve patient access?
    What prior successes and failures can teach us about designing contracts that deliver true value to the health systems?
    Can we avoid contracting and what would be the alternative?

    In the past decade, we have moved from simple discounting and traditional volume-based agreements to more complex value-based models involving measurement of health outcomes, risk-sharing and cost containment guarantees. The feasibility of these contracts tends to vary by EU market, dependent mainly on the available healthcare system infrastructure to collect and process data as well as other regulatory and philosophical differences.

    Ultimately, the question remains as to whether these agreements are a move towards better healthcare provision and more connected healthcare infrastructures, or are they slowing down access and creating administrative burden due to their complexity?

  • Applying behavioural interventions in chronic diseases
    Applying behavioural interventions in chronic diseases
    Cara Blair, David Hogben, Ian Greenway, Pippa Colden, Complete HealthVizion, Dominic Tyer, pharmaphorum Feb 6 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability worldwide and have a staggering impact on patients’ lives and the provision of healthcare around the world.

    Tackling conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke is of vital importance if patient outcomes are to be improved and healthcare costs lowered.

    To achieve this, and in doing so address clinical inertia, a combination of innovative communication strategies and behavioural science can provoke small changes that produce a meaningful difference in health outcomes.

    This pharmaphorum webinar, in association with Complete HealthVizion, will look at how to help chronic disease patients to live well for longer, by providing a clear understanding of healthcare professionals’ and patients’ behaviours and communication needs.

    Focus

    The webinar will take place on Thursday 6th February from 14:00-15:00 GMT/09:00-10:00 EST, when a world-class faculty representing a wide-range of disciplines, including social science, multichannel and medical affairs strategy, will discuss how behavioural change approaches can be used to avoid major health problems and the increasing costs associated with declining health.

    They will consider drivers of decision making in chronic disease management and look at why issues such as ‘behavioural complacency’ prevent progress and consider the lack of short-term benefits associated with many disease management approaches.

    All too often there is little urgency to act in patients at risk from chronic disease, despite a growing burden that increases their suffering and the time they spend in clinical practices with HCPs.

    This webinar will help change that, by looking at:

    •How to assess readiness to change among patients and HCPs
    •What strategic approaches work best in this setting
    •How to target the most important HCPs and convince them of the need for change
    •How to measure the effectiveness of behavioural change tactics

Join Cell Press Senior Vice President of Publishing, Dr. Deborah Sweet, for a detailed webinar on Cell Press’ innovation, growth in high-demand, multi-disciplinary content, and expanding Open Access publishing strategies at Cell Press. Dr. Sweet will also describe how Cell Press connects to the community through our outreach programs in webinars, symposia, Cell Mentor, Sneak Peek, STAR Methods, STAR Protocols, and more. Dr. Sweet’s talk and Q&A are sure to engage and inform all librarians who attend. Please extend this invitation to colleagues who may also find it of interest.
