This September, our spotlight series is all about medical affairs’ role in digital health!

Commentary
Tessy Huss

The medical affairs function in pharma has evolved over the past few decades. Initially created to separate promotional and non-promotional activities, the introduction of medical science liaisons (MSLs) provided a way for pharma to build relationships with healthcare providers with relative freedom to operate and heterogeneity in their approach.

 In recent years, medical affairs has slowly been brought into the digital era with the introduction of tracking tools and new virtual channels for communication with health care practitioners  HCPs. 

Patients' needs and expectations are also changing rapidly. Tech is an integral part of all aspects of our lives and is now part of their treatment and interaction with healthcare systems and people demand new levels of convenience as a result. Health tech and digital solutions now serve as an essential utility decision support tool for HCPs. 

Consequently, pharma companies, and medical affairs teams within them, are having to continuously revise their understanding of the patient journey and recalibrate how technology can positively affect experiences and outcomes of care. 

Are medical affairs teams ready to move from a support role and take more of a lead to innovate patient journeys and evidence generation strategies? What core digital health competencies should medical affairs professionals develop?

This September, our spotlight series on medical affairs aims to answer these questions and more.

Join one of our events in the series to listen and talk with industry experts and peers on the new role of medical affairs in a data-driven digital world… and keep an eye out for our upcoming industry report:

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
