  11. 11. App-on The web is not the culmination of the digital revolution. Over the past few years, one of the most important shifts in the digital world has been the move from the wide-open Web to semiclosed platforms that use the Internet for transport but not the browser for display 2
  12. 12. The web is dead. Long live the internet. App on 2 -Wired Magazine, August 2010
  13. 13. The web is dead. Long live the internet. As much as we love the open, unfettered Web, we’re abandoning it for simpler, sleeker services that just work. App on 2 -Wired Magazine, August 2010
  14. 14.

  15. 15. * There are already hundreds of publically-available apps for doctors, nurses and medical students
  16. 16. But, there are really just seven basic ways they work >> <ul><li>Decision support </li></ul><ul><li>Reference / lookup </li></ul><ul><li>Patient education / consultation </li></ul><ul><li>Patient support </li></ul><ul><li>Patient tracking </li></ul><ul><li>Continuing medical education </li></ul><ul><li>Collaboration </li></ul>App on 2

It tracks, reports, and publicly displays progress and utilization and allows the reps to share ideas and experiences. New rollouts of updates are centralized through the app. COLLABORATION App on 2
  24. 24. Mobile on demand The move to mobile is about much more than apps. It’s a fundamental change in expectations about resources and information. It’s a move to a fully on-demand world where content preferences are intensely personal. Is mobile the end of mass? 3
  25. 25. It’s harder than ever for sales reps to connect with prescribers AccessMonitor™, a report from global consulting firm ZS Associates, 5/2010 REP-ACCESSIBLE DOCS 20% REP-INACCESSIBLE DOCS 50% Last year, the number of docs who would see most reps dropped significantly and the number who refused to see most reps increased by half.

  43. 43. Pro social There’s no question that social media is harder in highly regulated industries like ours. There are questions about adverse events, off label references and clashes of cultures.
