“Having the ability to ask complex questions of the hundreds of millions of daily comments is revolutionizing how health care and pharmaceutical companies understand deep topics like the unmet needs of patients, the decision-making process of caregivers and the overall journey a patient goes through,” he explained.

He also illustrated how ListenLogic Health is pioneering major advancements in this space by providing this sort of insight to 15 of the Top 20 pharmaceutical companies across a wide array of therapeutic areas like diabetes, HIV, oncology, endocrinology, cardiovascular, allergy and asthma, infectious diseases, cosmetics and medical devices. “Our technology and expertise is helping the pharmaceutical industry understand products, markets, patients and competitors like never before, which is driving their strategic decision-making,” he said.
