Report: Modernizing the patient journey with digital

Report details how to build true-to-life patient journey maps with digital insights

Patient-centricity is the buzzword du jour for pharma marketers, but many fail to factor consumers’ digital behavior into their understanding of the patient journey. Smart brands realize that most of the patient touch points extend beyond the physician consult and that the traditional patient journey is significantly limited in the insights it provides.

For healthcare brands to remain relevant in this marketplace, they must make the patient experience more appealing and meet the heightened expectations of customer service and support across the patient journey. To move away from product-centric marketing messages and design truly patient-centric experiences, brands must understand how patients are leveraging digital channels at each step of their health journey–to gather information, solve problems, make decisions and share their experiences living with a disease.



In this report, DRG Digital Principal Analyst Rory Stanton shows brands the impact of digital in patients’ decision making along the health journey, but also how to map patient pain points to customer experience design and marketing strategy.
