Improving Online Engagement in Pharma During COVID-19

This webinar, part of our Analytics in 20 series, will discuss the role of engagement analytics in optimizing channel activity and digital sales strategies.

About the webinar

By the end of the first quarter of 2020, nearly all commercial pharma communications were forced online. This shift quickly tested pharma’s ability to effectively engage with health care professionals.

Engagement analytics plays a critical role in helping leaders understand behavior online and apply those insights to improve the performance of their online initiatives during the pandemic and beyond.

Hear from AstraZeneca Commercial Digital and IT VP Nick Passey about how they quickly shifted to digital engagement with providers in response to the pandemic, what insights they gleaned from analytics along the way and the resulting reimagination of their future digital strategy.
