New communications technology has the potential to both disrupt and enhance the pharmaceutical industry, but research shows that pharma often needs to up its game when it comes to the adoption of new technologies.
Mobile devices have transformed how we access and consume content, and are poised to make similarly huge changes to the way consider our health. mHealth revenue is projected to reach 26 billion by 2017, and the number of health apps has doubled in just the past two years. Social is also likely to have a major impact in the way that pharma communicates in the coming years. 52% of physician's surveyed by Deloitte in this research expressed interest in communicating with pharma companies via social media.
However, pharma currently lags behind other verticals for using social media. Pharma spending on digital advertising is far below that of other industries, and it still conducts most of it's communications with physicians via traditional channels. There is big potential for new communications technology to make the pharmaceutical industry more efficient and more engaged with it's customers. This infographic from Deloitte shows the potential for new digital technology to allow pharma to market itself more effectively.
