    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 1 Design Brief Cardiplexus provides a unique collaboration opportunity for cardiology communities. It provides them an easy to use interface which helps them in interacting, partnering and working with cardiology communities around the world. Cardiplexus is a network of cardiac professionals globally whose primary mission will be information dissemination. Problems Lack of collaboration among the cardiology communities. Lack of a cohesive network. No interactive peer review process. No diffusion of related practical and scientific knowledge. Authentication of the users. No sharing of professional experiences, initiatives, clinical practices and job opportunities. Lack of interactive measures of learning. Limited geography – country specific. Cardiologists practicing in rural areas are deprived of the latest knowledge, techniques and opportunities in the outer world. Lack of information to the aspiring cardiologists regarding the cardiology associations and their offerings. Design challenges To provide an online platform for cardiologists to develop professional relationships. -To provide online infrastructure for cardiologists to create, manage and expand their social network in the field of Cardiology.-To provide online technical infrastructure for cardiologists to share their clinical cases, images, videos and cardiology knowledge. -To be the leading source of educational and practical research information for cardiologists, allowing them to advance their skills and stay current with new innovations in the field. -To provide a technical infrastructure that Project Introduction shared by cardiologist organizations to support information exchange, collaboration, and administration. -To provide an optimal and richly interlinked platform for the major online journals. -To provide a resource through which companies can inform and gain feedback from cardiologists regarding products and services. Design challenge ‘To attract the cardiology community and sustain them. ’ Target users Primary : Cardiologists Cardiovascular surgeons Aspiring cardiologists Secondary : Pharmaceutical Companies dealing with cardiac products.
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 2 Recognize existing knowledge 1. What people need or want. 1. There is a need of an interface, where people from cardiology community can share their experiences and clinical practices. 2. Needforaplatform,wherecardiology community can discuss upon major issues privately. 3. Need for latest job opportunity updates. 4. Need for knowing about the cardiology conferences, workshops and events conducted across the world. 5. Need reference to research papers, journals, articles and clinical practice guidelinesissuedbymajorcardiology societies. 6. Networking between cardiologist and cardiac surgeon. (Cardiologists are often called in to assist doctors. Cardiac surgeon often request cardiologists to consult in the pre and post operative phase of the treatment.) 7. Need of a network between Pharmaceutical industry dealing with cardiac products and cardiologist. (For example, if a company launches a product, than they need a feedback from the cardiology community about the usage and performance of the product.) 8. Medical students specializing in cardiology needs information about top universities and their offerings. 2. What technologies can help in this challenge. 1. Web technology : Flash, xml, html, python, ruby, etc, Podcast, Web camera – video conferencing 2. Video technology : 3d technology, Animation, stills. 3. Biometric technology : Facial recognition, Fingerprint reader. 4. Mobile technology : Proscope’s pc tablet, Epocrate’s PDR/PDA, Smart phones, Blackberry 5. Touch technology : Touch pads, Touch phones. 3. What solutions or ideas are being tried in other areas. 1. For social networking there are several websites, like facebook, orkut, google+ and many more. 2. For professional networking, there is LinkedIn and facebook’s app branchout. 3. For the community of doctors, there are specific social networking websites like doc2doc, doctorshangout, etc. 4. For sharing personal experiences and information people have their blogs. 5. Blogs can consist of any media like text, videos, images and audio. 6. There are forums, where people can discuss on a topic raised. 7. There are different chatrooms in messengers, where people can join a respective chatroom and chat with the people of that community.
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 3 8. Facebook also have groups and communities, where people can mingle with other members of that particular group or community. 9 YouTube channels – people post their videos here and they can comment or discuss upon the same there itself. 10. For videos there is YouTube and many more websites, likewise for audio there is soundcloud, where people can listen to many different audio files. 11. For making video chat and video conferencing easy there is Skype. 12. For the latest job opportunities, there are many websites which provides the information for the same like monster.com, naukri.com and many more. 13. There are search engines like google, bing, etc where you can search almost anything. 14. Formal way of communication is E-mails, now this facility is provided in mobiles as well. 15. Earlier gaming used to be single or multiplayer, but on a single machine. Now to enhance that multiplayer option, you can connect via LAN or web. Through web you can play with n number of players from different parts of the world online. 16. As you can’t carry your computer everywhere, but you may require internet anywhere so, now you have internet on mobiles and touchpads as well. 17. If we bookmark a webpage it gets saved in the system memory. Delicious.com is a social networking service which helps us to keep(bookmark), share and discover the best if the web. 18. Another major social networking website is twitter.com, it is used for micro blogging i.e. it enables us to send and read text based posts of up to 140 characters. 19. For sharing your photos with your peers, there are services like flickr. com tumbr.com and instagram.com 20. To find a place in the whole world was not easy until google maps and google earth. 21. To enhance networking within an association or firm, there are intranet portals. 22. Got any problem or issue, there is justdial.com 23. Got issues regarding where to party, where to eat, then there is zomato. com 24. If you need to learn anything, almost anything then there are online tutorials, video tutorials andWikihow. 25. Lost you Encyclopedia or Encarta cds, don’t worry there is Wikipedia.  26. Want to promote your products, then there are online advertisements. 27. No need to read newspapers, they have got it online as well. 28. To maintain the security aspect few websites have fingerprint access instead of security questions like your first pets name? 29. Pinterest is a virtual pin board. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pin boards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. 4. Any early hypothesis about how to solve the design challenge. A professional networking portal can be proposed where people from the cardiology community will interact and share their professional experiences and practices. It will posses the following features : Forum – This will allow cardiology community to discuss about different topics posted by different cardiology professionals. Blogs – Some cardiologists are bloggers as well, so this portal will feature blogs of different cardiology professionals under one hood. An online repository of all the journals, publications, research papers, clinical
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 4 practice guidelines related to cardiology. Patients can also join this portal, so that cardiologists can maintain a network of patients treated by him and interact with them. Aseparatecolumnforthejobopportunity updates. A separate column for the innovations, news, conferences, events and workshops related to cardiology. Poll, where the members of the network will vote for the questions posted by the cardiology community. Interactive measures of learning like podcasts, vodcasts(videos, animations and 3d videos), webinars, photos and illustrations. Links to major cardiology societies and educational associations. Some other features include chat, video chat, private chat and group chat. 5. What we don’t know, what constituents do, think or feel. 1. Cardiologists daily routine. 2. How well equipped is he/she in terms of computer skills. 3. For what all purposes he/she uses a computer. 4. What is the mode of communication in the cardiology community. 5. Which cell phone does cardiologists use i.e. normal or smartphones. 6. What is the primary and secondary use of their cell phones. 7. Do they use touchpads, if yes then for what all purposes. 8. Are they regular bloggers. 9. Do they participate in forums. 10. Which social networking site they use and for what purpose, other than socializing. 11. Is there any particular repository of journals and research papers they they refer to. 12. For what all purposes he/she uses internet. 13. Do they share their personal and professional experiences and information with their peers. 14. What they usually do in the leisure time. 15. Dotheysocializewiththecommunity if yes in what ways. 16. How often they visit their social network profiles. 17. Normally how many hours a day they work. 18. Do they attend conferences, workshops and other events related to cardiology, if yes then how often. 19. Research papers and journals are enough or they refer to some interactive measures such as videos and podcasts. 20. Suppose a cardiologist is working in a hospital and if he wants to take a shift, what he will do? How he will find the vacancies. 21. How aspiring cardiologists find their way to become a successful cardiologist. 22. How pharmaceutical companies dealing in cardiac products communicate with the cardiologists regarding the feedback about the usage and performance of their productsfind the vacancies. 6. How people value offerings. Few social networking websites provides many offerings such as chat, group chat, communities, groups, timeline, notifications, uploading and downloading of photos, sharing personal experiences, calendar, information about events going to happen, uploading of videos, video chat, sharing of videos and audio via many other different sites. Now, on many of the websites you see a share button. By just clicking it you can share that info with your peers.
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 5 Social networking websites such as facebook, keeps widening itself by introducing n number of new products like apps related to games, career, horoscope and much more. Some are free , some are paid. Many websites release the mobile version of their products. Few websites develop an app focusing on only one aspect. Like facebook messenger, where you can only chat with your friends. Some websites allow only limited features for the free user and full features for the premium user. YouTube does have almost all the videos, you can see them and share them but if you want to download it than you will require third party applications. Some websites offer the demo of the featured product, which expires after a particular period of time. In some websites you can’t do a thing, because it requires registration (free or paid). So you need to register and than you will be able to use the website and its offerings. Some of the offerings of a websites works in accordance with other products. Like if I need to watch a video on YouTube, I must have flash player . Some applications when purchased provides some offers or benefits like discounts or free online storage, downloads, etc. Some web applications features advertisements for purposes like marketing, information dissemination and extra profit. 7. What constituents future needs may be. Integrated cardiologist/patient data can dramatically increase the information value added by providers, payers and manufacturers Different patients treated by a cardiologist will be allowed to connect to the cardiologist, So that the cardiologist will have all the patients treated by him in his network and follow up with each other easily. Pharmacists will also be able to join the network with limited facilities, so that he/ she can follow up with the cardiologist and through this network he/she will come to know about latest innovation in the industry of healthcare products and medicines. Practiceservicessuchasdecisionsupport, E–prescribingandASPelectronicmedical records (EMRs) can also be introduced through these kind of portals. An electronic medication bar-coding systemcanbeimplemented.Cardiologists can also access and print all the forms they need through the portal. They can customize and sort the information the way they want it. A cardiologist can sit in a car in the parking lot and sort the data in the order of which he/she is going to follow up with the patients. 8. Challenges to implement the ideas. 1. How to attract the users. 2. Authentication of the users. 3. Portal’s sustainability, as in how it will sustain the users. 4. Authentication of the data uploaded by the users.
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 6 Literature research Cardiologists in order to increase their knowledge refer to journals, papers, online tutorials and clinical practice guidelines provided by some of the major cardiology associations of the world. In order to keep themselves updated with the latest innovations and events in the world of cardiology they visit different websites relating to cardiology. There are networking portals like cardiologynetwork.com,doctorshangout. com, doc2doc.com, cardiosource.com, etc which allow cardiologists and other related people to socialize with each other. Services provided by these portals include – information sharing, forums, open discussions, innovation, events and technology updates, access to related journals, videos, narrations and pictures. The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is one of the major associations of the world which represents  over 70,000 cardiology professionals  across Europe and the Mediterranean.  The ESC also edits and publishes 7 of the world’s leading journals on cardiology. Cardio logical Society of India and Indian Association of clinical cardiologists are two main associations of India dealing in the field of cardiology. New social platforms such as Vitals. com even allow patients to grade their physician’s practice.American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion, American Heart Association and American Society of Nuclear Cardiology are the few major cardiology associations of The Sates. MedPedia is a much known portal which collectsandindexesallofthecontributors and content in these areas, with topics including everything from heart attack to angina, congenital heart disease and hypertension. Cardiology is a high-profile section of medicine because of the prevalence of heart disease (number one killer of men and women in the USA), the economic resources it utilizes (estimated 40% of Medicare dollars), and an area of significant health care technology development. Cardiovascularbusiness.com also is a much known website which provides features like latest news, articles, news about upcoming conferences and magazines related to cardiology. Cardiologist and cardiac surgeon works in collaboration as a patient first shows up to the cardiologist and if there is a condition of surgery he refers him to the cardiac surgeon. Cardiac surgeon then does his job and interacts with the cardiologist to follow the patient in pre and post conditions of the surgery. Cardiologists are often called in to assist other doctors. Cardiac surgeon often request cardiologists to consult in the preoperative phase of treatment. If a patient is known to have a preexisting heart problem, a surgeon will consult a cardiologist before, during, and after a surgery to track the patient’s health Cardiologists do more than treat existing problems. They also provide information and advice to their patients regarding the prevention of cardiac disease. 
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 7 The ACC is a professional association that serves more than 39,000 cardiovascular professionals. It recently launchedCardioSource.org, a revamped organizational website that includes a private social network for users to discuss issues important to cardiology. Much of the content is member-sourced, and the readership is predominately doctors and other heart-centered medical professionals. In cardiology, the site TheHeart.org, now also in Spanish, has developed an intense task with the spread of new information, and debates on the specialty. Through a journalistic approach, it exposes the outcomes of new trials with therapeutic implications, together with interviews to their authors and their critics. For doctors, there are good reasons to be resistant to internet. First, many do not want their details out there. Fair enough. Maybe you’ve been around enough to have enough references to do the Internet search heavy lifting. Also, there are important reasons, like patient privacy that need to be respected, and the Internet is the last place such conversations regarding patient care Mc Kessons’s horizon admin-Rx, an electronic medication bar-coding system that seeks to ensure that patients receive the right medication and dosage. Cardiology is specialty of  internal medicine. To be a cardiologist in the United States, a three year residency in internal medicine is followed by a three year residency in cardiology. It is possible to specialize further in a subspecialty. Recognized subspecialties in the United States by the ACGME are: Cardiac electrophysiology - Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography -   The use of  ultrasound  to study the mechanical function/physics of the heart. Interventional cardiology -   The use of catheters forthetreatmentofstructural and ischemic diseases of the heart. Nuclear cardiology -  The use of nuclear medicine  to visualize the uptake of an isotope by the heart using radioactive sources. should occur. Realize this is not for those kinds of professional conversations. Finally, procedurally-heavy specialists haveahardtimesittingbehindakeyboard having near-real time conversations with comment streams on a blog. Also, while blogs create an important static chronological log of written works, they also take considerable discipline and time to get off the ground - whether one posts daily, weekly, or monthly. Simply put, if you want readership, you have to post often to your blog. Most cardiologists feel too busy to devote significant time to such an endeavor.

What does a cardiologist do?
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 9 a cardiologist is approximately $319,000 per year. Besides receiving a large salary, cardiologists can also enjoy a solid benefits package that includes retirement benefits and health coverage. Education In order to become a cardiologist, you have to engage in a great deal of educational requirements. To begin, you have to get a bachelor’s degree, which typically takes about four years. Then you have to complete medical school, which takes another four years. Then you have to complete a residency program that could take anywhere from four to eight years. This means that you have to devote a large portion of your life after high school to learning before you can start working on your own. Considerations Aside from the large amount of compensation, being a cardiologist can give you a chance to save lives. The difference that you can make for individuals and families is tremendous. With the vast knowledge that you accumulate through your educational electrocardiogram or x-rays to determine the condition of the heart and the arteries around it. An electrocardiogram is a test that checks to see if a heartbeat is steady or irregular. Cardiologists diagnose heart conditions and then prescribe the proper course of treatment to remedy the problems. Working Schedule One of the biggest potential drawbacks of being a cardiologist is the working schedule involved. Because there are typically not that many qualified cardiologists in a particular region, you may have to put in many hours to see all of the patients that need your help. Some cardiologists work in excess of 60 hours per week on a regular basis. In addition to working long hours, you may have to be on-call for emergencies during your down time. Compensation One of the benefits of being a cardiologist is the amount of money that you can earn. Cardiologists are some of the most well-compensated workers in the world. As of 2010, the average salary for educational studies, you can treat conditions and help extend lives. This is a factor that must be considered when you are trying to determine whether to become a cardiologist. Michigan Cardiovascular Institute  - Information about this regional medical center specializing in heart health. Cardiovascular technologists and technicians spend a lot of time walking and standing. Heavy lifting may be involved to move equipment or transfer patients. These workers wear heavy protective aprons while conducting some procedures. Those who work in catheterization laboratories may face stressfulworkingconditionsbecausethey are in close contact with patients with serious heart ailments. For example, some patients may encounter complications that have life-or-death implications. Preventative care: the cardiologist will advise a patient to make changes to their lifestyle in order to reduce the risk of heart disease. This can include advice about healthy eating and exercise. Further specialization: this means focusing on a particular area such as pediatric cardiology (children and heart disorders). Help and advise pharmaceutical companies in respect of developing new drugs for cardiovascular conditions. Cardiologists play a vital role in the health care system today and have helped many people with heart conditions live normal lives again. Being a cardiologist comes with some advantages including high pay and prestige. It also has a few drawbacks, such as having to work long hours and be on-call at potentially inconvenient times. Function The job of a cardiologist is to examine the cardiovascular system of patients. A cardiologist performs a number of different diagnostic tests such as an Pros & Cons of Being a Cardiologist.

Use of social media in generalislowamongCanadianphysicians and use of social media for professional purposes is limited. While half of those polled have a Facebook account, only 12% have a Twitter account and only 7% report having a blog. However 96% report using Google to search for information for professional purposes and 42% say they have participated in an online discussion forum on a medical or health care topic. Physicians have mixed feelings about the value of social media, with 81% feeling it poses professional and legal risks; however, half feel it helps patients gain a sense of community. In 2009 we, two Dutch physicians assisted by a communication and IT specialist, startedaprimarycareconsultationservice on Twitter, called @tweetspreekuur. The free service consists of an account where Twitter users can ask health related questions (24/7). Primary care physicians provide answers within 24 hours.a cardiologist is approximately $319,000 per year. Besides receiving a large salary, cardiologists can also enjoy a solid benefits package that includes retirement benefits and health coverage. eBased on physicians’ reasons for using the Internet, four types of Internet users were clustered: (1) The Self expressional Socializer, (2) The Information Seeker, (3) The Internet Denier and (4) The Driven Self-expressionist. earn. Cardiologists are some of the most well-compensated workers in the world. As of 2010, the average salary for a cardiologist is approximately $319,000 per year. Besides receiving a large salary, cardiologists can also enjoy a solid benefits package that includes retirement benefits and health coverage. is that the mostpopular application are still e-mail and more than 80% do not actively employ content creating tools. Doctors are generally advanced e-learning users, with more than 40% learning online. Most doctors also use office products. Although more than 70% have published scientific articles and post gradual studies, the usage of web 2.0 research tools like Zotero, for instance, is very low. A high percentage of the interviewed physicians find web 2.0 tools theoretically useful and efficient. SOCIAL MEDIA IN EUROPEAN HOSPITALS: A DESCRIPTIVE STUDY 1998 hospitals were included in the study. The number of hospitals per country that used SoMe ranged from 7 (Luxembourg) to 741 hospitals (Germany). The first measurement showed that: five types of SoMe were used in two countries, i.e., The Netherlands and United Kingdom; three types of SoMe were used in one country, i.e., Germany; two types of SoMe were used in four countries, i.e., Denmark, France, Luxembourg and Sweden; one type of SoMe was used in four countries, i.e. Spain, Norway, Austria and Belgium; no type of SoMe was used in two countries, i.e., Ireland and Switzerland. The second measurement demonstrated an increase in the number of hospitals that used SoMe. Furthermore, the number of different types of SoMe that were respectively used increased as well. PHYSICIANS’ REASONS FOR PROFESSIONAL INTERNET USE WEB 2.0 BASED TOOLS AND PHYSICIANS: ARE WE REALLY READY TO GO? More than 300 doctors have answered this first survey. First preliminary results have shown that 97% have Internet at home and 47% use mobile services in comparison to 44, 4% of Internet users on Spanish population. What is interesting is Time for Pharma to Face Social Media Fears? With strict regulatory and compliance demands from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pharma’s reluctance to embrace the social media trend comes as no surprise. Pharma companies are bound to adhere to the guidelines of the FDA‘s Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications(DDMAC),whichaimsto ensure that prescription drug information is truthfully conveyed to the public.
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 16 It’s already happening: Most pharma companies have started to tentatively foray into the world of social media through online communities, blogs, Facebook or Twitter accounts, although these outlets are generally underutilized or not user-friendly. Unofficial sites and communities like WebMD or Revolution Health are much more popular with patients than official company channels. Choosing not to actively participate in these social conversations won’t make them disappear. By building up a strong social persona and providing viable social media platforms, companies can have a direct hand in shaping and guiding the conversation around their products and brand. Transparency : In the past few years, several pharmaceutical companies have come under attack for their slow response time either to processing and reacting to customer complaints or disseminating information about potential side effects or health threats to the public. Social networking sites provide a forum to instantaneously respond to consumers and expedite awareness of any unexpected side effects. Engaging in this two-way dialogue with consumers and reacting in real-time lends credence to the honesty of the brand. Educating and engaging the patient community: Social media provides a new channel to educate the consumer, either through syndicating preexisting information or answering customer questionsdirectly.Italsoallowscompanies to monitor and immediately respond to off-label use or developeducational materials around recurring customer issues and concerns. Pharma companies can alsoengage the physician community and educate them about the merits of the product or company. Inaddition to that, social media can be leveraged to raise patient and other participant awareness about a medical condition, general clinical research or ongoing clinical trials. In effect, social media acts as a valuable agent in patient recruitment planning as well as execution. This engagement— particularly as patients and physicians become better informed—increases the likelihood of these parties acting as brand advocates. Extracting social intelligence: The use of social media has accelerated the content explosion, andgetting to the wealth of intelligence buried in this content is a daunting task for any company. Companies can employ social computing and business analytics to evaluate the massive amounts ofunstructured data imbuedinsocialmedia.Theseinsightscan be leveraged to understandperceptions, trends and patterns among various stakeholder groups – not just patients, but generalpractitioners, specialists, sales representatives, pharmacists and nurses and learn how these impacteach other and product sales as well. Pharmaceutical companies can also use social media to conduct drug review and perception evaluation. For example, one of the largest European companies reevaluated its brand messaging and uncovered competitive advantages in the space of insulin-based drugs by analyzing its nearest competitors through social channels. Consumer-driven innovating: As social media has enabled consumers to become While the communication guidelines for print and broadcast media are explicit, the DDMAC has not formalized guidance for communication in the context of interactive digital media.This ambiguity leaves what is deemed appropriate for social media communication open to theDDMAC’s discretion—and consequently, many pharma companies are hesitant to broach this newterritory. Another barrier to the adoption of social mediatechnologiesinthepharmaceutical industry is theFDA’s mandate regarding adverse event reporting, which requires manufacturers,packersanddistributorsto submit any and all reports of adverse drug side effects to the FDA. Many companies areconcerned that participating in social media will result in an increase of non- compliance risks for factors such as the detected events missed to be followed or not followed within the required timeframe. Also there are other open issues such as suspected authenticity, identifiable patient orreporter, duplicate information and other. So why should pharma get into the social media game now?
    • Cardiplexus April 2013 Symbiosis Institute of Design 17 useful to the individual user. In the future, the Internet will develop as an indispensable tool used to communicate with and monitor patients. Interactive online disease management and compliance tools will become particularly useful as cardiologists face a record number of patients diagnosed and treated for cardiovascular diseases. Pharmaceutical companies can take advantage of the customizable nature of websites in order to reach their target audiences in diverse geographic markets. Online resources that cater to the specific needs of local cardiologists in a particular geographic market will maximize their appeal to and influence on individual site users. In the US and Europe, the majority of surveyed cardiologists search for information on specific drug treatments, compliance with specific treatments and expert opinionsWhen looking for health information offline, other physicians are the most ‘frequently’ used channel among cardiologists in the US, France, Italy, Spain and the UK When looking for health information online, drug specific websites are the most ‘frequently’ used offline channel among cardiologists from the US and Europe When cardiologists are looking for health information from any source, other physicians, medical journals, magazine publications and drug specific websites are the most ‘frequently’used channels The majority of cardiologists surveyed spend between 5 to 20 minutes on a health website in a single visit Across the surveyed markets, ‘time issues’ is the greatest factor preventing cardiologists from using the Internet to find health information On average, cardiologists across the surveyed markets reported that ‘too many ‘advertisements‘ is the factor that most affects them when deciding not to use a particular website to find health information Cardiologists from each surveyed market varied considerably in opinion in regard to which types of information they find to be the most valuable when featured on a health website Nearly one-third of cardiologists surveyed spend between 10 to 15 hours per month participating in continuing medical education courses Although none of the surveyed cardiologists participate in an eCME program on a daily basis, an average of 57% participate in such programs twice per month or more Anaverageofover90percentofsurveyed cardiologists would like to participate in an online continuing medical education program in the future An average of over 70 per cent of surveyed cardiologists receive free samples frompharmaceutical sales representatives twice per month or more, with an average of nine per cent receiving samples on a daily basis a vocal andinfluential constituency, customer or other stakeholder (e.g. analysts, shareholders and others) insights mined from social data can be used by pharma companies to guide their product andservices pipelines. One large US-based pharmaceutical company closely tracks the reactions ofvarious stakeholders to company news, comments made during investor meetings or majorannouncements in social media, and analyzes this data in real time to inform their strategic priorities. Capturing the voice of the customer is more important than ever, particularly as social channels allow consumers to express their needs and desires in real- time. Co-creating products and services with customers will become rote as companies strive to innovate and quickly respond to this new source of demand. Through the provision of value-adding services, pharmaceutical companies can encourage physicians to become regular site users. Companies can then approach these users, through website feedback/ customization or permission-based marketing initiatives, with the option to request product information that is most
