  5. 5. <ul><li>Many differences and many similarities </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>What is the goal of patient engagement and support? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Biopharmaceuticals and medical technologies are facing pricing pressure in nearly every global market. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Rising co-pays in Private Pay markets. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Price discounting in National Pay markets. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Self-pay barriers in Emerging markets. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Manufacturers must ‘increase the value’ of their solutions in response. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Re-shape value propositions from active comparators and TPPs to real-world solutions to complex, difficult, expensive health problems. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Globally, the capabilities of the patient to take medicines as prescribed and manage the disease more broadly are clearly linked to Quality of Life, outcomes and health economics. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Valuable relationship with patients and clinicians do not come from a carefully scripted series of marketing emails.  Automation of noise is not the goal. The goal is authentic service relationships to accompany clinicians, patients, and families in their experiences. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Give patients and family the right self-management support at the right times through the right channels. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide clinicians with timely, helpful answers to questions and simple tools to improve decisions and patient self-management. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Key Trends: Competitive Markets </li></ul>Competitive.   Biopharma must show added value to payers/employers, as well as increasingly self-paying patients (through high deductibles).  At the same time, prescribers have enormous choice in most classes and must see meaningful differentiation to prescribe.  Finally, FDA is increasingly requiring risk management programs where enhanced support must be provided to patients, prescribers and pharmacists. Competitive Markets Price-Reference Markets Health Economic Markets Emerging/ Cash Markets Markets (private) (Medicare Part D) ( (PMPRB) (DoD/Medicaid) (NICE) (Provincial) and Scandinavia
  8. 8. <ul><li>Key Trends: Health Economic and Price-Reference </li></ul>Health Economic and Price Reference.   In both health economic and price reference markets, it’s all about what can be proven as valuable and, in the case of price reference, what is new. In addition, EMEA, MHLW and other regulatory bodies are increasingly requiring risk management programs where enhanced support must be provided to patients, prescribers and pharmacists.  Competitive Markets Price-Reference Markets Health Economic Markets Emerging/ Cash Markets Markets (private) (Medicare Part D) ( (PMPRB) (DoD/Medicaid) (NICE) (Provincial) and Scandinavia
  9. 9. <ul><li>Key Trends: Competitive Markets </li></ul>Emerging/Cash Markets .  Across most emerging markets, there is need to engage and show truly greater value to the holy trinity of largely self-pay patients, powerful neighborhood pharmacists and physicians.  This is critical for both brands and branded generics.  At the same time, regulatory bodies and physician groups are clamping down on ‘added value’ practices of the past (eg, CFM 1939 in Brasil).  High mobile phone penetration presents opportunities to use integrated voice, text and web to engage patients in their care, and to better loop in the pharmacist.   Competitive Markets Price-Reference Markets Health Economic Markets Emerging/ Cash Markets Markets (private) (Medicare Part D) ( (PMPRB) (DoD/Medicaid) (NICE) (Provincial) and Scandinavia

  29. 30. <ul><li>5 Critical Areas Must Be Localized </li></ul>Language & Cultural References Reimbursement Channels Legal & Regulatory Partners
  30. 31. <ul><li>What is local culture? </li></ul><ul><li>The learned, shared, transmitted values and beliefs and practices of a particular group that guide the thinking, actions, behaviors, interactions, emotions and view of the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Art Beliefs about: </li></ul><ul><li>Relationships Family obligations </li></ul><ul><li>Customs Gender Roles </li></ul><ul><li>Clothing Preventative Health </li></ul><ul><li>Environment Illness and death </li></ul><ul><li>Economics Sexuality </li></ul><ul><li>Religion </li></ul><ul><li>Diet </li></ul>
  31. 32. <ul><li>How do culture and language impact health behaviors? </li></ul><ul><li>Health, healing and wellness belief systems; </li></ul><ul><li>Illness, disease and how causes are perceived; </li></ul><ul><li>How health care treatment is sought and attitudes toward providers, impacting treatment; </li></ul><ul><li>Delivery of health care services by providers. </li></ul>
  32. 33. <ul><li>Language Pitfalls </li></ul>
  33. 34. <ul><li>Areas to watch for: Language Localization </li></ul><ul><li>Language that patients use to refer to… </li></ul><ul><li>Access/reimbursement </li></ul><ul><li>Pharmacies </li></ul><ul><li>Providers </li></ul><ul><li>Symptoms </li></ul><ul><li>Side-effects </li></ul><ul><li>Drug efficacy </li></ul><ul><li>Behaviors and self-management </li></ul>
  34. 35. <ul><li>Areas to watch for: Cultural Localization </li></ul><ul><li>Cultural differences… </li></ul><ul><li>Role of individuals vs. group </li></ul><ul><li>Role of family </li></ul><ul><li>Role of elders vs. young </li></ul><ul><li>Views toward illness and medication </li></ul><ul><li>Views toward Western medicine vs. traditional medicine </li></ul><ul><li>Color and image meanings </li></ul><ul><li>Tools and training systems for clinicians: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>how much choice did the patient have in their therapy options? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>how much access does the patient have to care providers, medications? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>how much patient knowledge is there about basic care practices, hygiene, human anatomy, etc? </li></ul></ul>
  35. 36. <ul><li>Reimbursement Localization </li></ul>Public Insurance Private Insurance Self Pay Increasingly high co-pays on new treatments. Not all patients have coverage. Need to work directly with the doctor to introduce the support program because insurers are so fragmented that they have no relationship with the patient. Resolving patients ability to pay issues should be a top concern. Focus on value cards, and patient assistance programs. Usually good coverage with lower co-pays, but high limitation on treatment options. Look for opportunities to work with public payers - potentially tying results to different pricing schemes. Access to all new treatments. But Patients must pay themselves. Patients require more education on the benefits of their medication - particularly in asymptomatic chronic conditions. Resolving patients ability to pay issues should be a top concern. Focus on value cards, and patient assistance programs. Impact on Patient Impact on Support Program Map out healthcare journey for each country including how and when the drug gets paid for to help make the right decisions.
  36. 37. <ul><li>Legal & Regulatory Localization </li></ul><ul><li>Direct to Patient. Nearly every country globally allows manufacturers to provide necessary education and support with therapies. However, there are many differences between countries as to where education/support end and marketing begins. </li></ul><ul><li>Branding : Branded or unbranded? Implications for naming, colors, links, mentions of specific medications & devices, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Adverse event reporting : Ensuring the appropriate data capture, screening, and reporting steps are taken in each market. </li></ul><ul><li>Privacy Requirements : Tailoring data capture & disclaimers to local requirements. </li></ul><ul><li>Claims Language: Identifying any unusual watch-outs on claims in specific markets that must be managed. </li></ul><ul><li>Review Process : What will be the formal review process in each market that the patient support program will need to go through. </li></ul>
  37. 38. <ul><li>Channel Localization </li></ul>Clinician tools and support <ul><li>Different media – mobile, internet, paper, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Different HCPs – nurses, other allied professionals, specialists, primary care. </li></ul><ul><li>Different roles for family. </li></ul>Patients Family & Caregivers

  40. 41. <ul><li>Diagnose </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnose the total treatment environment, patient journey and inflection points and understand differences by geography and culture .  </li></ul><ul><li>What are the key distinctions </li></ul><ul><li>Who/where does the patient interact for healthcare?  </li></ul><ul><li>What is the experience of the disease & therapy?  </li></ul><ul><li>What is the underlying human experience (physical, social, behavioral, cognitive, emotional)?  </li></ul><ul><li>What are the inflection points along the way where intervention is needed and impactful? </li></ul>
  41. 42. <ul><li>Diagnose journeys… </li></ul>1 2 3 Guiding Questions Why it Matters <ul><ul><li>Healthcare journey </li></ul></ul>Which people & organizations does the patient interact with on his or her journey? Determine what communication channels can be used to reach patients at their inflection points. <ul><ul><li>Disease & Therapy journey </li></ul></ul>How and why do the the specific diagnostic & monitoring tests, and classes & brands of treatment change through the journey? Identify opportunities to drive optimal use of your therapy. <ul><ul><li>Human journey </li></ul></ul>What are the physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and social experiences the patient goes through? Understand the medical and self-management needs that impact the course of the patient journey.
  42. 43. <ul><li>… and understand inflection points </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An intervention is needed, impactful, or critical e.g., initiation of injectable insulin </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not intervening could be dangerous e.g., vaccination </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When benefits of intervention outweigh risks e.g., immunosuppressant after transplant </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When which interventions are best e.g., aspirin or ACE inhibitor or beta blocker for CHD </li></ul></ul>✔ ✔ ✔ Small or large windows of opportunity where science helps us decide... Moments when patient risk factors and protective factors coalesce to be exponentially powerful predictors of outcome e.g., 2 nd trimester for fetal brain development, adolescence in general Life events that are physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral, or social e.g., initial diagnosis of a condition, relapse, change in disease status
  43. 44. <ul><li>Identify highest impact needs and points to intervene </li></ul>A patient journey has critical inflection points... key moments in patient experience where variables intersect to predict outcomes. Patient decisions and actions at this time have a significant impact on long term outcomes. Long-time diabetic has been warned, “If you can’t control this, we’ll have to put you on the needle.” Now is the time. 10 year-old hemophilia patient wants more independence with his condition. His mom is nervous, but now is the time. Dialysis patient finds out that a compatible kidney has been found. A new self-care routine is starting. Today my doctor told me I have Crohn’s.
