CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Many power shifts are occurring within the healthcare system. Undoubtedly, the growing influence of patients in the biopharmaceutical market is impacting activities and spend for marketing interactions. Now, more than ever, understanding how to effectively acquire, convert, support and retain patients for medical products is essential.

According to recent research by benchmarking firm, Best Practices, LLC, benchmarked companies spent about two-thirds of their patient-focused dollars on marketing activities, with the remainder of funds split between foundational and leadership programs. Overall, investment levels for patient programs are increasing.
