Best of British - BOBI awards

BHBIA celebrates the very best of business intelligence

Gaining insight into your customers and their prescribing habits has never been more important for the pharma industry, with data gleaned from business intelligence activities vital in giving marketers the competitive edge over their rivals. To celebrate the importance of research and best practice in this sector, the British Healthcare Business Intelligence Association (BHBIA) held its inaugural Best of Business Intelligence (BOBI) Awards in April, at The Grove, an 18th century house set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire parkland.

The new scheme recognises best practice in healthcare business intelligence, market research and sales research. More than 250 guests gathered to celebrate award-winning work across six panel-judged categories and individual achievements in four peer-judged categories, all presented by compere for the evening, Dr Phil Hammond. There was a broad spectrum of winners, but it was sanofi-aventis that did the double, picking up the award for Most Innovative Approach for the Acomplia Patient Prescription Survey (in conjunction with red kite consulting group), while John Marchant, Head of UK Corporate Research, was recognised for Business Intelligence Excellence.
