  • Measuring MCM ROI is broader than previously believed: Which quantitative and qualitative metrics are the most powerful when measuring MCM effectiveness? When should they be used and how often?
  • Focus remains on an individualised customer experience: How important is customer engagement when assessing the complete picture? Can MCM measures be customised sufficiently to enable enhanced monitoring and ROI?
  • Some pharma companies are gaining ground: Who is using digital channels successfully; what do they do well? Which strategies are showing most promise? What is the single ‘make or break’ factor when embracing MCM?
  • Traditional marketing skills are not enough: Digital marketing plays a crucial role in successful MCM strategies. What experience is needed? Can existing staff be trained or is ‘new blood’ a necessity?
