KEY THOUGHT: I am very disappointed, again, in the Digital Pharma conference that just took place. I would have hoped that the people presenting would have acknowledged the elephant in the room, but they ignored him. How can we expect the industry to change of we can’t even understand that pharma, right now, is in a crisis?
MY THOUGHT: Digital pharma East is about to begin but has anything changed? If you look at new pharma websites, and metrics like bounce rates and tie on-site, over time, nothing has changed. We must acknowledge that healthcare digital marketing is unique not only because it’s healthcare but because each health issue has different metrics primarily driven by patients.
