Can you give a quick summary of the presentation?

EP/DC: In this session, we will be reviewing the challenges the publication and medical communication functions face at a small company, discuss the importance of collaboration between publications and medical communications to effectively plan, implement, and ensure smooth communication of company data to external stakeholders, and how to leverage different technologies, tools and processes to achieve business needs.


What are some of the different technologies and tools you plan on covering in the session?

EP/DC: We plan on covering Publication Management System (PM Solutions), Global Publication Review Process, Content Aggregator System (REACH), Project Management Tool (TRELLO) and Congress Planning Process.


What are 1-3 main takeaways you hope attendees learn from the presentation?

EP/DC: The publication and medical communication functions within Medical Affairs work closely together to develop, manage, and implement internal and external communication efforts of key scientific data for the company. The partnership between these two functions contribute to the overall strategy for evidence generation to support the overall development and execution of scientific communication plans, so it is crucial that these two teams work closely together. Without establishing key strategy from an operation, system, and process perspective, it will be difficult to effectively and efficiently support key communication initiatives.
