The frequency and depth of conversations happening online among people who share a disease far outpace those that happen between a patient and his or her physician. In these patient communities, people share the unfiltered truth - about their disease, their drugs and their daily lives. This unprecedented level of authentic conversation offers real-world insight into the patient experience. By aggregating and analyzing this data, innovative biopharma companies are gaining actionable insights into unmet patient needs. This fundamental transformation to a patient-centric model is revealing misconceptions, improving health outcomes and unlocking valuable opportunities across the ecosystem.
