    e-Patient Dave says "Let Patients Help!"

    in Health

    Dave deBronkart has a well-earned reputation as an e-Patient.  An internationally recognized speaker, author, and health policy advisor, he has words of strength for patients for sure.  


    In addition, he works with physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies to help them Let Patients Help!


    When most manufacturers decide to create a new product, they do market research and conduct focus groups to determine in advance what the consumers want.


    In medicine, it's mostly about what the doctors want.


    But the doctors are not the end-user consumers in medicine, they are talented and experienced personnel, but the end-user consumers are the patients.


    Come hear what Dave believes are the many ways that Patients can help improve healthcare.


    See also Dave's new book, Let Patients Help! A patient engagement handbook - how doctors, nurses, patients and caregivers can partner for better health care.  http://www.epatientdave.com/let-patients-help/

Dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening diagnosis, the many recurrences of cancer, and the subsequent treatments for the malignant and aggressive tumors marked the beginning an almost 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The unique combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.

    The Three Pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy

    in Business

    Input, Solutions, Culture


    Pharmaguy interviews Anne C. Beal, MD, MPH, Chief Patient Officer, Sanofi, and Melva T. Covington, MPH, MBA., PhD, Project Leader, Research and Develooment, Sanofi. They talk about their roles in bringing the patient perspective into Sanofi's work to advance Sanofi's ability to deliver health care solutions that matter most to patients and those who care for them.


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    How do you define "Patient-Centricity?"
    Tell us more about the three pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy. How do you get patients' input? Do you have any patient advocates on your team who are not physicians but who have worked extensively with patients?
    Are we talking only about patient-centricity in the context of research & development? What about corporate and marketing communications?
    What's the most difficult hurdle for pharma to overcome to be truly patient-centric?
    Why did Sanofi create the role of "Chief Patient Officer?" How is it different from "Chief Medical Officer?" What do you do as Sanofi's Chief Patient Officer? Can you relate a case study which demonstrates how you implemented your strategy?
    What other pharmaceutical companies have Chief Patient Officers? Do they all have similar roles? Will all pharma companies follow?
