Medical and Scientific Affairs Communications Virtual Summit

The pandemic world is still facing how to digitize best within medical affairs and there is a greater need than ever before for engaging and informative content. Throughout the last three years, communication within the pharmaceutical industry has changed drastically. The transformation or communication to primarily virtual has vastly affected those working in the industry- both field and office based. Digitization of communication across the board has demanded medical affair professionals to embrace new skills and build new strategies for building relationships and disseminating information to the correct channels in engaging formats. 

The landscape in medical affairs has continually changed and as it continues to advance it is crucial that communication strategies be optimized and implemented to keep organizations and the data provided relevant and captivating to all audiences whether that be patients, stakeholders, or healthcare professionals

It is more important than ever before for medical affair professionals to understand storytelling, compliance, and digital strategies. Professionals in the field must embrace learning new skills and work to adjust to a constantly changing landscape. Psychological effect of COVID has created a simplified and streamlined mindset of practitioners from medical science liaisons. Medical science liaisons always tried to meet face-to-face pre-COVID, but with the technology available now, this is no longer necessary. Technology is now being taken advantage of more than ever before. Communication and data are now becoming personalized medicine both for patients and HCPs. Using new tools and digital communication strategies, organizations will remain relevant and be able to successfully communicate important data to patients, stakeholders, and healthcare professionals through the use of different channels- both in person and digitally.
