Patient Journey Mapping in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Despite the onslaught of numerous challenges in recent years, the US pharmaceutical industry is anticipated to experience reasonable growth for the next couple of years. Much of the pharmaceutical companies’ growth is expected to come from the shift in focus to biosimilars, biologics, and orphan drugs. However, factors such as the rising instances of lifestyle-related diseases and chronic ailments and the launch of innovative and specialty drugs are also playing their part in boosting the growth of the global pharmaceutical industry.

However, with the advent of new technologies and economic shifts, many companies in the pharmaceutical industry have begun to experiment with the concept of customer-centricity, otherwise known as patient journey mapping. Companies of today focus more on delivering an exceptional patient experience and are entire focusing more on the entire patient lifecycle and patient experience – right from initial engagement, through purchase and into ongoing usage and loyalty. Better understanding of the patient experience can reveal new opportunities to bring about innovation in products and services. This would help them become more patient-centered – encouraging patients to seek diagnoses sooner, facilitate compliance with treatment regimens, and ultimately improve overall patient experience and business results.

To remain competitive and financially successful, pharmaceutical companies should become more proactive in addressing both the economic and clinical value of products across the product life cycle. Additionally, pharmaceutical companies should be able to demonstrate their value economically to patients and payors and create more innovation around delivering economic value and creating a better patient experience.
