Part I: Why Pharma CX Visionaries Look to Digital Transformation to Drive Impact
When 2019 began, the pharmaceutical world was talking about the affordability of healthcare, moving to value-based healthcare, and debating whether or not AI had legs in the high stakes world of pharmaceuticals. As this year comes to a close, we looked back at our body of work for our pharmaceutical clients to see what came to fruition within these trends.
We found a common theme. As pharmaceutical leaders work to meet the evolving demands of both health care professionals and patients, the innovators are relying more and more on automation, so time from precious resources could be better spent on higher value work, focus could be spent on customer experience, and productivity gains could impact the bottom line.
This movement to automate repetitive, predictable tasks, digitize data, and act on the story that data tells you is called digital transformation. Digital transformation is revolutionizing the way pharmaceuticals improve patient safety, bring products to market, ensure compliance, secure acquisition, and improve the overall health of the business operations.
Visionary customer experience owners within pharmaceutical organizations see the writing on the wall – the ones who work smarter will be the first ones to have impact. And impact can come in the form of keeping patients safe, grabbing market share, or staying compliant.
