Pharma and proactive, preventative healthcare: how to use the pharmacy channel


Across Europe, a shift towards greater prevention, earlier diagnosis and treatment is needed in order to contain the growing cost of healthcare.

But how can healthcare systems make this transition – and how do pharmaceutical companies play a role in this, while also growing their market?

A recent webinar hosted by pharmaphorum with sponsor PHOENIX group looks at how harnessing the data and expertise of pharmacies, and via greater engagement with patients, consumers and shoppers can meet this emerging need.

Key topics included:

  • Industry: how can pharma switch from treating a disease to earlier health management? The role of preventative medicine, vaccines and early diagnosis explored
  • The role of community pharmacies in prevention and health – increasing screening and diagnosis rates and facilitating appropriate medication
  • How point of sale information in pharmacies can help generate a picture of patient groups and individuals. How loyalty card schemes support OTC and consumer spending patterns, which illuminate health needs, prescription patterns and purchasing behaviour.

Why watch the webinar?

The expert panel provides practical advice and real-life examples of how pharmaceutical companies can work with pharmacies to grow their market and better serve patient needs.

The live webinar took place on Wednesday 6 September at 14.00 BST/15.00 CEST/09.00 EDT. To view the webinar on-demand, please click here or on the button above/below.
