    Online Channels: professional science communication on the web Online Channels: professional science communication on the web Presentation Transcript

    • Online Channels:
      professionalscience communication
      on the web
    • Online channels
      Over the last years, several Pharmaceutical Companies have created websites related to drugs or diseases and have provided excellent descriptions and presentations for a vast audience.
      However, these websites work in different ways, thus disorienting readers and the efficient search for useful information.
      Moreover, recent surveys have shown quite low redemption rates for websites sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, mainly due to the long process of authentication and the lack of devices providing updated information in real time.
      The growing investments in communication with physicians must find a new target, as it happens with online platforms known and used by physicians.
      Thanks to its specific experience, Merqurio has developed a new method of web-based communication, in order to deliver scientific insights relevant to health care professionals: the online Channel.
    • Channels
      The proposal by Merqurio
      The Channel is in an area of DottNet, Merqurio’s social network created for health professionals, where scientific contents, information, movies, and discussions among colleagues are included.
      Thanks to its specific topics, it is also called “self-consistent”, since it offers a wide range of scientifically relevant information related to specific products and diseases in the same area.
      DottNet users can choose among a wide range of issues, where they can find a lot of information useful to their professional practice.
      Moreover, DottNet gives the possibility to comment, discuss and share contents of interest with colleagues and friends, as social networks.
      The Channel allows users to enter any scientific support, from classical types, such as abstracts or clinical reviews, to multimedia materials - webcasts, podcasts, videos, power point presentations, etc. ...
    • Channels
      Features of the Channel
      The Channel offers several types of contents and uses :

    • Channels
      Features of Channel
      Pharmaceutical Companies may ask to sponsor the channel by usingproduct banners or corporate brands. Moreover, through a customized graphic layout, the Company can produce a real theme-based “e-meeting”, also reserved to specific targets.
      The Online Channel is a communication pillar of e-detailing and allows to give information on diseases, therapies and treatments supported by medical and scientific discussions.
      Product sponsorship or promotion can be achieved using banners, ad spaces and reserved areas for every product, called microsites.
      The microsites are connected to the Channel, but theyare entirely promotional.
    • Channels
      Notifications and updates
      Every user is informed on developments and updates by simply receiving an email.
      The first email sent to the user is a Dem invitation to the Channel that shows its features and allows a fast and direct access through a simple link.
      Automatically DottNet sends and generates subsequent e-mails related to visitors’ activities, such as:
      • Subscribing to groups associated with the Channel
      • Adding/changing contents
      • Entering messages on the group bulletin board
      • Adding contents to the group (text and multimedia)
      Doctors are always kept informed about the news which are available or included in the Channel, thanks to a push system that sends immediate notifications.
