Optimizing the Use of Patient-Level Data (PLD)
to Enhance Your Marketing Capabilities
March 22-23, 2004 * Philadelphia, PA

In a time when market exclusivity is shortened by patent expirations and pharmaceutical companies are fiercely competing for market share, marketers need to utilize every resource to their fullest advantage. Patient-Level Data (PLD) is proving to be one such advantage. Typically marketers have tracked physician prescribing behavior as a means to forecast market conditions and monitor product performance. Patient-Level Data is now supplying the crucial pieces of the puzzle left missing by physician-level data. At each step of a patientÂ’s contact with the healthcare system, data recorded electronically about disease state and treatment regimens are available to pharmaceutical companies once identifying information has been stripped from the records. Effective analysis of PLD can boost pharmaceutical sales during a drugÂ’s lifetime by eliminating speculation from marketing decisions.

Industry executives are still lining up on opposing sides when it comes to using PLD. Some tout the benefit of having a plethora of data to examine, while others criticize the validity of its uses. Some of the controversy stems from misunderstanding the limits of PLD and asking questions it was not meant to answer. Knowing what type of data is available and what insight it provides can save you marketing dollars and increase sales exponentially.

Pharmaceutical Education Associates is proud to present the Optimizing the Use of Patient-Level Data to Enhance Your Marketing Capabilities conference. This conference will address how PLD data can be used, what types are available, and what questions it can answer. Learn how to integrate this information into your company structure and become a knowledge-driven, customer-centered company. Our Case Study Challenge provides an opportunity to test what you have learned throughout the conference. One request for presentation (RFP) has been submitted to all data providers participating so that you and our distinguished industry panel can determine methods to help solve your marketing quandaries.
