  • Thank you very much for the invitation to speak here today on How Technology Helps Compliance. Goal today give you an overview on some of the available technologies to help compliance at medical device, pharma and biotech companies. I am focusing on sales and marketing since they are often the last to adopt systematic technologies.I want this to be interactive so feel free to ask any and all questions.Before we get started let’s check in and see who is on the line.Great, let’s get started.
  • Today I am going to cover why technology is important for sales and marketing compliance.5 technologies that leading companies are implementing today and you can expect your clients to ask you about if they haven’t alreadyAnd, I will touch on integration at the end of the talk to tie all these disparate systems together into one master record.
  • There are so many technologies out there that 90 minutes wouldn’t do justice to. Here are some examples and a few places to start learning more.I am personally intrigued by Verilogue who has a system for audiotaping the rep presenting to the MD
  • I don’t need to belabor the costs of noncompliance with all of you as you could school me in this. However, I do want to point out that procedures without compliance doesn’t accomplish our end goal. Compliance is about behavioral change and enforcement. Let’s move on.
  • Paper is not compliance. And, training is not learning let alone behavioral change. We need to consider our sales and marketing audience first before looking at technologies b/c paper transformed to technology that isn’t adopted leaves us back at square one, or worse.Sales and to an extent, marketing, is a mobile oriented group where flexibility is rewarded. They are both highly verbal, and some would say, difficult to control.Not to mention that When something is a habit, the PFC signals the STN at a very low rateConserves cognitive resourcesMake decisions more efficientlyWhen doing something different, as simple as looking at dots in a different order, your PFC signals your STN at a very high rateDoing something new or making a difficult decision requires motivation. Without significant motivation, we default to our habits.Finally, I spent 20 years influencing sales to adopt marketing messages and technology. The most important thing you can do is to understand their daily habits. Sales tends to be a very verbal and mobile-oriented group. We want them face to face with the growing group of constituents to whom we sell as we see here in the lower right, not writing impressive tomes or reading copious amounts of written materials, correct?So, I will leave you with one question to close this section. If we listen to HBR’s compelling blog on “forget compliance. think environment”, how would you redesign promotional content creation and control to ideally meet both internal needs as well as the needs of a highly verbal, on-the-go, in the car, let’s say standing at the scrub sink sales group?[Additionally, Marketing is trying to respond more rapidly to more non-physician constituents than ever before and, in many cases, with this economy and healthcare reform, with less resources. I would maintain that you need to consider a promotional content review system that meets the individual needs of each member of this cross-functional group: regulatory, medical, legal, sales and marketing.]
  • Here is a chart I created for the market opportunity for Good Promotional Practices with a risk scale. As you can see here, there are a number of people who are involved with customers and selling or marketing to customers of one sort or another who do not work in the sales or marketing departments. So, we need to throw our net wider and include these people as we consider systems for change.

  • Tell story from going from the library, to the UI, to final message.Instant, Multi-language product and pricing updates on a broad geographic area.
  • Upload in a few clicksHow tags drive the organization of business rulesStatus of what drives availability of contentVersion control and archiving
  • Maureen:To close on the criticality of now for revamping your promotional content and control procedures, let’s talk real-time search engines and social media. These real-time search engines have a 1 second lag. 1 second – the noun lag hardly seems appropriate. What is your company’s monitoring lag time for the stream of news, blogs, social media and the web communications that may or may not be disseminated appropriately? If you are relying on training, consider Reagen’s adage, “trust, but verify”. You don’t want one million people viewing an off-the-reservation video, having the NYT pick it up as a story and having it cut, re-worked, and re-posted hundreds of times the b/c it takes two days, like it did with Dominos earlier this year, to formulate an action plan.Backup:Domino’s learned firsthand the power of social media after two Domino’s Pizza employees posted videos of themselves doing disgusting things to food that they were getting ready to send out.  The results were catastrophic due in large part to Domino’s waiting two days to respond.  During their delay nearly one million people viewed the videos on YouTube and simultaneously blogs, forums and Twitter were ablaze with discussion of the incident.  The company responded by firing the two employees and issuing an apology via YouTube.  According to the New York Times, the damage was already done as consumer perception of the brand turned negative within hours and online forums continued to discuss the videos, which were cut, re-worked, and re-posted hundreds of times, long after the apology was issued.You need to consider social media as part of your promotional content review procedure.And, now Elsa Abruzzo will discuss how to work and respond effectively in this newly demanding environment.Next slide please.
  • Shadow IT as a phenomena is increasing. When we say shadow IT we mean employees bypassing IT to create IT assets, like apps. This is happening for several reasons – the main driver is the potential that the end users see in mobility. Strong user demand for mobile appsIncreasingly technical user baseEasy (initial) app development Corporate policies lagging technology
  • To review the lifecycle of an iOS device, MobileIron provides and console where you can view all devices, makes sure that they are fully configured and secure, allows you to roll out devices on a large scale, enforces all of your security polices and updates the device silently, while allowing you to control costs and publish apps. [click][click]And allowing you to selectively wipe data and apps when the device is lost or retired.
  • And you can enforce restrictions. For example, one the left you see an iPhone with no policies applied. On the right you see the same phone with polices that disable the camera, iTunes, and some other apps and updates. In this way you can enforce the enterprise data boundary, with no user interaction necessary.
  • MobileIron uses the APIs provided by Apple to….[click]… help you control cost and quality, manage applications, enable advanced security, and enforce policies and settings. We’ve talked about these before, but let’s dive deeper into managing iOS devices with MobileIron.
