Four Steps to Maximize Digital Engagement In Life Sciences

The needs of healthcare professionals (HCPs) were changing long before the restrictions of the pandemic arrived, but the process was dramatically accelerated with COVID-19. Personal experiences with mobile, social, and digital technologies have driven a consumerization effect where HCPs expect a personalized, relevant, and frictionless experience.

With nearly 70%*** of all HCPs being digital natives, reps must reimagine customer engagement and embrace digital as a permanent and essential component of HCP engagement.

Download this practical guide which introduces four steps that can help you:

  • Assess your digital engagement maturity level
  • Maximize digital adoption and optimize engagement
  • Empower reps to deliver the experience HCPs want

The Rapid Rise of Digital Engagement In Life Sciences

While digital channels offered the only alternative during the restrictions of the pandemic, a return to in-person, business-as-usual engagement seems highly unlikely. Success going forward will depend on how well and how quickly life sciences companies can adopt digital engagement as the centerpiece of a hybrid approach.

The pandemic was a catalyst for expediting digital transformation in the life sciences industry, particularly customer engagement. Adoption of digital engagement skyrocketed, with global Veeva Pulse data since March 2020 showing a fivefold increase in remote meetings and a fivefold increase in rep-sent emails.

The Consumerization of Healthcare

The needs and expectations of healthcare professionals (HCPs) were changing long before the restrictions of the pandemic came into being. Personal experiences with mobile, social, and digital technologies have driven a consumerization effect where HCPs increasingly expect personalized, relevant, and frictionless experiences.

Now that HCPs have experienced just how convenient, efficient, and timely digital interactions and channels can be, no one is predicting a return to the pre-pandemic business-as-usual model of engagement. Instead, we’re at an inflection point where companies must reimagine how they engage with their customers and embrace digital engagement as a permanent and essential component of a hybrid model going forward.
