POWER TO THE PATIENTS
Connecting digital dots to get to the heart of the patient experience
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT & COMMERCIALIZATION
We examine what your organization is doing to improve outcomes and create data-driven insights for your patients. We then strategize using smart frameworks and global resources in order to understand the implications of every choice you make. Deep or broad? B2B or DTC? Healthy consumers or rare disease? Let's talk about your options to make an informed decision.
BUILDING A PIPELINE OF SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE
Would your product hold up to scientific scrutiny? Which stakeholders need to be convinced? Let us support you to build a portfolio of peer-reviewed data, editorials, and professional marketing content to establish credibility in the marketplace while showcasing how you are pushing your field forward.
MEASURING WHAT MATTERS
Patient-generated Health Data (PGHD) and Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are a key part of your digital health tool, letting your users track their progress over time, identify key trends, and even self-experiment. We can identify validated tools and approaches that can measure what matters to patients, clinicians, researchers, and other stakeholders at scale.
PAUL WICKS, PHD.
Paul is a neuropsychologist and expert in digital health, clinical trials, and patient centricity. For 13 years he led the R&D team at PatientsLikeMe, an online community for over 700,000 people living with medical conditions. Specialising in clinical research using the Internet, Paul shaped the scientific validity of the platform in generating insights from patient-generated health data, leading to over 110 studies including a patient-driven observational trial of lithium in ALS, numerous patient-reported outcome measures, a “dose-response” curve for the benefits of friendship between patients, and methods for patient-centered and virtual clinical trial designs.
He sits on the editorial boards of the BMJ, BMC Medicine, JMIR, Digital Biomarkers and The Patient. Prior to joining PatientsLikeMe, Paul worked at the Institute of Psychiatry (King’s College London) studying cognition and neuroimaging in ALS, with a postdoc in psychological consequences of Parkinson’s disease.
His work has been profiled by the BBC, NPR, CNN, BBC Radio 4, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times. In 2011 he was awarded MIT Technology Review’s TR35 “Humanitarian of the Year” award, recognized as a TED Fellow in 2012, and joined the inaugural FLIER Program at the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2019.
From keynotes described as "the highlight of the conference" to corporate workshops, we can offer transformative talks on digital innovation, inspirational citizen science, and the future of health. Paul has spoken on global stages including TED, Lift!, and the G8, and spoken for corporate clients in finance, life sciences, and consulting.
