In today’s pharmaceutical marketing mix, analytical metrics — specifically, return on investment (ROI) models — are imperative to implementing successful integrated solutions. With shrinking sales forces and marketing budgets, healthcare companies are challenged to maximize resources, increase market share and improve education while demonstrating valuable ROI.

MedTera™, an integrated marketing solutions company dedicated to improving education, promotion and communications in the healthcare, life sciences and pharmaceutical industries, is poised to partner with pharmaceutical companies with real-time ROI metrics on fully integrated, closed-loop strategic marketing programs.

That’s about how this match will play out folks… point and counterpoint! We hope to have a lively, yet somewhat civilized, discussion as the staunch Republican libertarian “Chairman” takes on the Uber-liberal critical “Pharmaguy” in a no-holds-barred head-to-head matchup!
