Effective Pharmaceutical Marketing During the Last Mile

If the typical consumer journey resembles a short sidewalk, then the patient journey resembles a puzzling maze. It can take years for a patient to find a specialist and a treatment plan that helps them get well, and they might cycle back through the numerous stages of the patient journey multiple times before they get to that point. Still, there’s a golden opportunity on the winding road for pharmaceutical marketers. 

The patient journey last mile — the small window of opportunity between when a prospective patient connects with a specialist and makes an appointment — is critical to pharma marketing success. Last mile engagement is your best chance to advertise to high-value, low-funnel patients before they make an appointment with a specialist and drive brand prescriptions. Healthgrades’ advertising solutions can help.
