A major pharmaceutical company was in need of a review and approval process to help streamline the planning and execution of its external medical events. While the company had certain policies and procedures already in place – including a strict governance board approval process that required coordination among several teams throughout the company ­– those guidelines were not well documented and therefore were not easily available for reference. Because the external events are meant to support the company’s brand, consistency was key, making it imperative that a repeatable process be developed and implemented.

The Challenge

A major pharmaceutical company was in need of a review and approval process to help streamline the planning and execution of its external medical events. While the company had certain policies and procedures already in place – including a strict governance board approval process that required coordination among several teams throughout the company ­– those guidelines were not well documented and therefore were not easily available for reference. Because the external events are meant to support the company’s brand, consistency was key, making it imperative that a repeatable process be developed and implemented.

The Solution

CMK Select partnered with the medical directors to observe the various stages of the existing event planning process. Through careful examination, the CMK Select team was able to develop a greater understanding of what needed to be done by each unit when planning, documenting and delivering an event. From there, CMK Select created a comprehensive reference guide that documented each step of the process, noting what could be done in parallel versus what had to be done sequentially, and underscoring the protocol set forth by the company’s existing branding guidelines and governance board approval process.

The Results

With the comprehensive reference guide in place, the medical teams now have a streamlined, consistent and repeatable process to follow for all external events. As a result of the increase in efficiency, events are being documented and delivered on time, on budget and within company guidelines.
