  • Unlocking the value of pharmacists to reach the right patients and consumers
    Unlocking the value of pharmacists to reach the right patients and consumers Pierre-Yves Boisvert, Paulien Schul, Nina Felton and Andrew McConaghie Recorded: Mar 29 2017 70 mins
    Pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals who have a deep understanding of medicines and daily contact with patients and consumers. This puts them in a unique position in terms of being able to maximise the benefits that patients get from their medicines – however, healthcare systems and pharmaceutical companies frequently overlook this potential.
    Pharmacists are especially well placed to help patients with multiple long-term conditions manage their health and medications, and pharmacist-led interventions have been shown to have a very significant impact on compliance and disease management in the community.
    We present a webinar debate in which our expert panel will discuss how pharmaceutical companies can work in collaboration with pharmacists in Europe to help patients make the most of their medicines, help generate data to prove the value of these interventions, and above all get the right medicine to the right patients and consumers.
    Join us and the PHOENIX group as we look at the practical steps needed to make this a reality. Key topics to be discussed include:
    •The challenges of identifying the right patient population across European markets
    •Understanding how pharmacists can play a greater role in patient care, e.g. improved adherence and outcomes
    •How optimum use of pharmacy level information can contribute to providing ‘real world’ evidence of treatments

    The Customer Data Best Practices Your Digital Transformation Needs Thomas Brence, Director of Product Marketing, Informatica & Monica Mullen, Principal Solutions Marketing Manager, Informatica Mar 29 2017 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    If you’re betting your future on digital transformation initiatives to increase the loyalty of a changing customer base, don’t overlook the state of your customer data. It’s not only customer expectations and demographics that are changing, but how you reach customers is in a perpetual state of flux. Twenty percent of addresses, thirty percent of email addresses and eighteen percent of phone numbers change every year.

Relying on customer data that is inaccurate and unreliable leads to offers that fall flat, higher program costs, and lower team productivity.

    - Customer data best practices to support your digital transformation investments
    - How you can keep customer contact data in Salesforce relevant and accurate to boost team productivity and increase trust in your data
    - The ways you can easily verify, validate and enrich your customer data for better customer understanding and actionable insights

    Service Activation Testing (SAT) plays an important role in MEF’s Third Network vision of delivering agile, assured, and orchestrated connectivity services. MEF 48 (SAT), MEF 46 (Latching Loopback) and MEF 49 (SAT Control Protocol and PDU Formats) specifications make up a framework for standardized testing and troubleshooting of Carrier Ethernet-based services for service providers. Collectively these specifications are known as the MEF SAT Power Play. These specifications can be used all together or individually to comprehensively test Carrier Ethernet-based services. The webinar will discuss the important relationship between MEF’s SAT specifications and the work of other standards developing organizations (SDOs), such as IETF RFC 2544 and ITU-T Y.1564. Discover the many benefits of MEF’s SAT Power Play including improved testing efficiency for retail and wholesale Ethernet service deployments, boosting customer satisfaction by reducing the number of faulty turn ups, and accelerating the interconnection process between peer operators.

    How to automate security investigation and remediation for real time response Barak Klinghofer, Co-Founder and CPO, Hexadite and Steven Forsyth, RnD Manager, HPE Security ArcSight Mar 29 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The effectiveness of a security system depends on how quickly it detects and responds to threats. Is your security system able to tackle security challenges in near real time, while reducing false positives so analysts can focus on critical events and Indicators of Compromise (IOCs)?

    Learn how the combination of these two systems gives you the ability to:
    • Gain visibility across the entire IT footprint
    • Detect security threats in real-time
    • Automate incident investigation
    • Perform automated or semi-automated remediation actions
