In the era of Quadruple Aim, a better patient experience is paramount. As pharmaceutical organizations bring new products to market to meet the needs of patients in varying therapeutic areas, it’s imperative they understand the issues patients are facing. Understanding and supporting patient advocacy benefits the pharmaceutical industry by providing key insights into the main drivers of patients’ choices and behaviors. Many patients turn to advocacy groups in times of need.
At The Brooks Group, we have developed a syndicated market research offering that allows you to uncover the needs of your patients and the advocacy groups that serve them. The Advocate: Supporting the Patient Voice focuses on the policy and programmatic support provided by pharma in conjunction with advocacy groups throughout the country.
We do this through our yearly syndicated market research assessment that has been in the market for 10 years.
