New Digital Analytics Platform Provides Powerful Tool for Media Agencies Serving the Healthcare Industry

Media agencies under increasing pressure to optimize digital campaign performance and return for their healthcare clients have a new, real-time analytics tool – Digital Impact for Agencies™ (DIFA™) from Crossix Solutions. A breakthrough in direct-to-consumer analytics, Digital Impact for Agencies is the first cloud-based online measurement and reporting platform specifically designed to support agencies tasked with monitoring and improving digital advertising campaigns. The new solution measures media campaigns across the patient journey, from information-seeking to prescription fill, to provide agencies with a more powerful way to optimize campaigns in comparison to traditional measurement approaches.

DIFA is powered by Crossix Digital Impact™, a proven solution that has measured billions of online ad impressions for Top 10 pharmaceutical companies and leading media agencies. The new platform is built upon Crossix’s proprietary HIPAA-compliant methodology, which leverages actual consumer Rx and OTC behavioral data. DIFA now fully caters to the unique needs of agencies and harnesses the hallmarks of modern cloud technology – flexibility, immediacy and self-service accessibility – to provide early and frequent performance updates.

“As the digital channel continues to evolve and pharma brand clients demand greater accountability for their campaigns, media agencies need a more sophisticated way to show and prove value,” said Dan Stein, senior vice president of Analytics Services & Product Strategy for Crossix. “Digital Impact delivers meaningful data, beyond click and brand website engagement metrics that drastically underrepresent the true value of a campaign. With DIFA, agencies can now leverage actual behavioral and sales impact metrics, and do so while campaigns are still in market.”

Through the cloud, DIFA provides a one-stop shop for Rx and OTC-based campaign metrics at the campaign and publisher level, including:

  • Campaign delivery – including the volume of impressions and unique individuals exposed to the campaign over time broken out by age, gender and geo-based data
  • Audience profile – including the percentage that is treating in the therapeutic category or on brand
  • Campaign impact – including doctor and pharmacy visits, conversion to brand and other ROI metrics

“These are exactly the types of metrics that will help me to optimize my campaigns,” said Tina Breithaupt, senior media director for Intouch Solutions. “And it’s even better that I will be able to access them online more quickly. The expanded insight this data brings will translate to increased client value.”

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments.
