Aktana and Envision Pharma Group Partner to Help Medical Affairs Navigate the Evolving Physician Engagement Landscape

Share

Aktana, the leader in intelligent customer engagement for the life sciences industry, and Envision Pharma Group, a global, technology-enabled scientific communications company operating across many areas of medical affairs, announce a strategic partnership that provides medical teams with a comprehensive toolkit for more impactful scientific exchange. By bringing together their extensive technical and industry expertise, Envision and Aktana offer life science companies the ability to enable their medical science liaisons (MSLs) to address HCP demands for personalized, scientifically relevant content and coordinated omnichannel engagement.

Despite the industry’s separation between commercial and medical teams, today’s HCPs expect MSLs to operate with a holistic view of their engagement with the product. While many life sciences companies have already started equipping commercial teams with technology to synthesize data and coordinate interactions across channels, medical affairs organizations still largely lack the right tools to navigate the dual challenges of information overwhelm and decreasing HCP access.

“MSLs are in a challenging position, learning to balance traditional and modern digital strategies to engage with physicians in an environment where they are asked to respond to questions faster and more frequently,” said Derek Choy, president of Aktana. “With Envision, we can help MSLs by optimizing their HCP engagements to be more relevant, coordinated, and tailored to their individual needs, whether digital or in-person.”

Together, Envision and Aktana will provide medical affairs teams with streamlined, tailored solutions that incorporate Envision’s industry-leading scientific expertise and Aktana’s intelligence platform, which is fueled by a range of integrated data sources and learns from every prior interaction. The partnership arms MSLs with quick, reliable access to the latest scientific information that’s relevant to each HCP, paired with data-driven insights on how, when, and where to deliver that information for optimal customer engagement.

“Like us, Aktana has a long history of helping life sciences companies of all sizes break down data silos, connect internal teams, and generate insights to improve interactions with HCPs,” said Paul Archer, chief commercial officer at Envision. “Together, we will focus on guiding medical affairs teams to build, deploy, and refine their omnichannel strategies so MSLs can deliver value to HCPs when they need it most for improved patient outcomes.”

Archer continued, “We look forward to a long-term partnership with Aktana, as we take the next steps towards our combined vision for a powerful solution that incorporates all touchpoints across the HCP journey.”

ESF Seafood announced the transitioning of its shrimp processing plant to renewable energy.
