Interactive Patient Case Study Builder for Jazz Pharmaceuticals

Erwinaze® (aaraginase Erwinia chrysanthemi) is part of a chemotherapy program to treat patients who have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a type of blood cancer affecting the white blood cells that help fight infection. Erwinaze is used in patients who have had an allergic reaction to a different type of asparaginase treatment.

As with other leading oncology brands, peer-to-peer communication serves as a very important mechanism for Jazz Pharmaceuticals to help inform and educate oncology healthcare professionals (HCPs) about the use of Erwinaze in their practices. However, it is critical for the KOL promotional speakers facilitating these programs to find creative and dynamic ways to engage with their peers beyond a traditional slide deck presentation.

Jazz Pharmaceuticals challenged Viscira to develop an innovative and informative tool for their Erwinaze promotional speakers to use in a peer-to-peer setting with target oncology HCPs to engage the audience and help facilitate discussion. The client wanted the tool to allow speakers to interact with their audiences in a dynamic way to promote collaboration and idea exchange during the sessions.

Web Tele-Detailer Platform for Sunovion Pharmaceuticals

Gaining access to physicians is difficult due to the greater demands on their time and healthcare institution policies that restrict pharma company access. In fact, sales rep access to doctors is at an all-time low, with accessible rescribers down from 77% in 2008 to 51% in 2014.

Sunovion Pharmaceuticals needed a tool to increase sales rep access to physicians in a restrictive environment where many healthcare professionals would rather receive the latest news and communicate with pharma companies via various digital channels and their mobile devices.

Viscira was challenged to help Sunovion deepen the relationship between its tele-sales Representatives and health care professionals (HCPs) during phone-based sales calls in which the current engagement was only 1 to 2 minutes per call (in line with industry averages).

Interactive Core Sales Aid (iCSA) iPad Application for a Top-Five Pharmaceutical Company

Viscira was challenged to adapt content from printed sales aid material and reimagine it in a way that would allow sales reps to engage more effectively with health care practitioners (HCPs) about a treatment regimen for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) without diluting key medical messages for the brand. One of the program goals was to inform and educate HCPs about a new dosing algorithm for the product.
