Ipsos Healthcare Launches Syndicated Patient Journey Studies

Friday, September 20, 2013

London, UK – Ipsos Healthcare, the global healthcare division of Ipsos, has announced the launch of its syndicated patient journey studies.

Beginning with OncoJourney, which offers a holistic view of the oncology patient journey, the studies comprise the industry’s first syndicated, multi-stakeholder approach to understanding the end-to-end buying process. Specifically, they combine quantitative syndicated Global Therapy Monitor data with qualitative multi-stakeholder research; this delivers a comprehensive understanding of the journey from symptoms through to treatment, whilst shedding light on different stakeholders’ roles in diagnosis and treatment decisions.

The business-oriented deliverables of the journey studies enable pharmaceutical companies to: gauge the importance, influence and role of different stakeholders; understand disconnects between multiple stakeholders; identify targeted messages for different stakeholder segments; and more. The integrated findings can be used to identify gaps between current behaviour and desired outcome.

OncoJourney – along with forthcoming journey studies in other therapy areas – leverages the syndicated data sources that companies already subscribe to. Deliverables are tailored according to needs, budgets and objectives.

Dr Karen Higginbottom, Associate Vice-President – Global Oncology, commented:

“The journey studies deliver a whole new dimension of insight and understanding from companies’ existing syndicated data – thanks to a proven, pre-defined framework that integrates fully with Ipsos’ Global Therapy Monitors and other syndicated data sources. This allows research budgets to stretch further without losing the quality, depth and knowledge provided by traditional patient journey / buying process work.”
