  • 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.

    The Top Three Challenges Facing Online Gaming Regulators
    Jon Bruford Recorded: Dec 5 2018 62 mins
    It was once said that online gaming cannot be effectively regulated. Since then, many jurisdictions around the world have shown this statement to be false.

Having said that, the introduction of legalized online gaming has not been without its challenges. Different socio-economic, political and cultural landscapes have posed unique challenges to regulators around the world. During this webinar, we will look at how regulators in the UK, mainland Europe and the USA have responded to these challenges.

    Rob Hanna Dec 12 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The future of technical communication demands greater precision, knowledge, and discipline in how we create content across an omnichannel universe. It also requires better collaborative writing practices that will meet the need for faster delivery of information. The precision we require involves working with more granular content containing richer metadata. The topic becomes a container for these blocks of reusable content. Each block of content is written to evoke the intended reader response for that content. While these smaller blocks of content require more discipline, they are ultimately easier to write as they are more tightly focused on the need for that information.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Rob Hanna, President at Precision Content Authoring Services, for this free one-hour session. Rob will look at some of the writing and analysis techniques they use at Precision Content to enable content for both the present and future—man and machine.

  • Perception vs. Reality: How does the current state of Healthcare Cyber Preparedn
    Perception vs. Reality: How does the current state of Healthcare Cyber Preparedn
    Mark Sangster, Chief Security Strategist eSentire Dec 12 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Like recent Cyber targets, Marriott and Quora, Healthcare providers, insurers and med-tech firms present a rich target for cyber criminals, offering lucrative gains. eSentire conducted independent research, interviewing 1,250 senior executives, leaders and security practitioners to understand the risks that face their organizations, and the strategies and investments they are making to protect their businesses. What emerges is a paradox of perceived readiness when it comes to responding to cyberattacks, which is not supported by the underlying data when it comes to spend, security programs, reporting, and attack data from eSentire’s security operations centers.
    Recent cyber-attacks allow for a prescriptive baseline in order to explore those findings and delve into the conflicting evidence to provide a clear picture of where healthcare security stands, and where it needs to go to meet the threats posed by the cyber criminals actively hunting them.

  • Using Universally Faceted Nano Content to Improve Findability
    Using Universally Faceted Nano Content to Improve Findability
    John O'Gorman Dec 12 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Technical communications has progressed from monolithic paper and digital manuals, to structured, topic-based authoring, and more recently down to 'microcontent' to improve quality, ease of access and consistency of message. 'Nano-content' is the next logical step in that progression and lives at the 'coalface' between content and data. It is the bridge between structured data and structured topics which, when properly managed, can add several new dimensions to technical publications work.

    Universally faceted nano-content is a technique that takes a page from GPS applications that use triangulation (latitude, longitude, and elevation) to locate things in geographic space. Locating things in digital space should be just as intuitive and precise.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for this webinar with his special guest, John O’Gorman, Principal and Chief Disambiguation Officer at Quantum Semantics. John will walk through the process of identifying, classifying and using terminology to connect the language of a business or application to the content that supports its use. He will demonstrate how the same process can be extended to the content itself and how, in combination, faceted terminology takes findability to a whole new level.

    ABOUT JOHN O'GORMAN

    John O'Gorman is a 30-year veteran of the information management trenches. He is the inventor of a universal classification protocol called Q6, and co-founder of Q6FSA, an enterprise information management collaboration with Robert Vane in the UK. His experiences run the gamut from terminology stores and data catalogs, to executive information reporting, data warehousing, activity-based costing and technical communications, localization and internationalization. His big 'aha' moment came when he realized that all of them are made of the same stuff and follow the same rules.
