Now in its 8th year, and for the first time virtually, the Pharma CX Summit will bring together 200+ customer experience leaders of pharma to share how the industry can design and deliver more seamless customer experiences for patients, payers, and providers.  Despite the conference being virtual this year, we have no doubt the content and networking opportunities will be top-notch!

The Pharma CX Summit focuses on three main customer segments – patients, payers, and providers – and examines how pharma can use technology, data, and design to drive customer engagement and outcomes in a real and measurable way. Conference speakers include pharma marketing and brand leaders, technology companies, patients, CX business experts, leading solution providers, and non-pharma CX leaders. Attendees benefit from a virtual conference environment that fosters peer-to-peer interaction, collaboration, and networking.

Join us at the Pharma CX Summit 2021 this March!

The Global State of Customer Centricity in Pharma
Increasingly, the pharmaceutical industry is taking a customer-centric approach to both the development and commercialization of new products. From being patient-centric when conducting clinical trials to driving more engaging interactions between medical representatives and healthcare providers, companies are placing the “customer” at the center of their commercial models.  Trilations, a management consulting firm that provides guidance and insights powered by data and advanced analytics to pharma in over 50 countries, recently released their annual Pharma Customer-Centricity Index. This global survey reveals the perception of top pharmaceutical companies’ customer-centricity in several major treatment areas.  Trilations CEO Johan Vermeiren discusses the results of the survey in this presentation: The Global State of Customer Centricity in Pharma.
