eDetailing is often the primary marketing channel for life science companies — for a good reason. Done right, eDetailing provides a high-value, personalised experience for healthcare professionals (HCPs). And for pharma and MedTech, it offers a unique opportunity for focused concentration on their products’ benefits.
Today’s eDetailing is often deeply connected with a wider channel ecosystem — providing an essential waypoint on a planned ‘customer journey’. And novel, more flexible forms of eDetailing open new opportunities for life science companies to meet HCPs’ changing needs. Talk to us to learn what’s possible.
Value: eDetailing enables pharma reps and medical science liaisons (MSLs) to provide quality presentations to HCPs using a mobile device. It is often the primary channel for companies to inform HCPs about innovations, share developments in medical science, and train specialists, doctors and nurses on the optimal use of pharma’s products. The in-person one-to-one nature of these interactions makes eDetailing particularly appropriate for building long-term relationships.
Engagement: By replacing paper-based sales aids, eDetailing enables you to provide more engaging experiences for HCPs. In particular, the intelligent use of interactivity draws people into your product story, turning passive listening into an active and engaging experience. eDetailing is most effective when the potential of the technology is unlocked with powerful content — supported by an in-built storytelling structure that underlies all great presentations.
Connected: Today, eDetailing often exists in a channel ecosystem. While it is usually the first digital asset that pharma companies put in place — and remains a great place to start — eDetailing now plays a crucial role in customer journey planning. It provides the ‘human element' to increasingly online engagements and enables in-depth discussion of your product benefits. When sequenced correctly, eDetailing meetings deepen understanding, correct misconceptions, and act as a springboard for further exploration in other channels.
Flexibility: While eDetailing is now well-established, innovation continues. New technologies are empowering companies to provide eDetailing experiences in more flexible ways, offering HCPs greater choice in how they can engage with pharma. For example, virtual meeting technology has enabled eDetailing meetings to be run online. These remote sessions allow HCPs to view presentations, ask questions, and participate in discussions — just as they would in a physical meeting. This provides HCPs with greater flexibility for meeting scheduling and has proven very popular.
On-demand: Another innovation is self-service eDetailing. This provides an on-demand detailing experience so HCPs can access your presentation anytime. Pioneered by Anthill, this approach makes a presentation available online in a secure and fully-compliant way. While HCPs can interact directly with the content, the rep-guided nature of eDetailing is maintained by adding digital brand assistants to the content, powered by ‘chatbot’ technology. This approach is particularly popular with HCPs who either do not want face-to-face meetings or prefer to review the content at their own pace.
Experience: New content possibilities are also continually introduced. Anthill’s eDetailing solutions offer options like a ‘shopping basket’ to which HCPs can add materials flagged during the engagement. These are then automatically emailed once the session is complete. This is a great way to help HCPs go deeper into topics when they have more time. We are also now providing the ability for HCPs to order patient information — targeted to different patient groups — right from an eDetailing presentation. These are then printed and automatically delivered to the HCP.
