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?
