9780566086434: Successfully Marketing Clinical Trial Results: Winning in the Healthcare Business

In the US alone, pharmaceutical companies spend around $7,000 million dollars a year on clinical trials for drugs; all this in a global market where increasing competition and pressure on healthcare financing, are all impacting on margins and profitability. One solution for pharmaceutical companies lies within the clinical trials themselves. If only you can communicate the trial findings to the right people, in the right way, you can benefit from this huge investment and add significant value to your product range and your brand. "Successfully Marketing Clinical Trials Results" is a comprehensive guide for every marketing professional faced with the challenge of using marketing to convert scientific data into sales. The book offers you practical knowledge on how to use medical research data to maximise the revenue from your products. There are sections explaining how to: identify your market and devise your strategy; develop your content and to translate data into a message that has impact; use language, layout and illustrations to best effect; communicate internally, as well as externally; make most use of the resources available; align your sales force and the external agencies with whom you work; lead the people in the project team; and manage the medical researchers, external experts and the press. Dip into this book and you'll find answers for everything from how to handle class-effect questions to developing a shared brand vocabulary. There are plenty of vivid examples and real-life applications to reinforce the ideas. Cases studies illustrate solutions to problems; checklists and tips help you to implement the suggestions and recommendations. Gunter Umbach has distilled the essence of 25 years' experience in the healthcare market and of his highly successful seminar series on marketing clinical trials into the professional advice given in this book. The text is accompanied by a CD-ROM, containing detailed PowerPoint slides supporting each of the (over 300) techniques that you can use in your marketing team meetings to develop great ideas of your own.
