Frontera capped off a terrific year by being a finalist for consultancy of the year.

Summary of performance

A fabulous cemented our place as THE agency that ’speaks patient’. But, we still had a fundamental problem – we needed more BIG PHARMA.

An over dependency on small to medium pharma providing project-led work, meant that we needed to constantly win new business just to stand still. We needed clients with multiple big brands and collaborative, integrated teams focused on meeting the needs of patients. Clients who would invest more consistently in a partnership with a group focused on knowing patients best.

We targeted progressive teams in Big Pharma in the following ways:

- Our brand spanking new business development team secured eight big pitches of which we won six

- We delivered more major shop-window programmes, driving amazing feedback & word of mouth

- We repackaged our products to start training clients on how to better meet their patient-led ambitions

- We enhanced Thrive, investing even more in our talent management approach – to improve performance & a positive work experience for every member of staff.

The results:

- We exceeded growth targets and increased profitability

- We retained all clients and signed up four new top ten pharma clients

- We improved our staff retention & staff satisfaction ratin.g

The year was summed up, when one of our directors was stopped on the train home by a passenger from Big Pharma who recognised our logo on the back of her phone & asked “Aren’t you the patient people?”. That passenger is now a client.

Judges' comments

Why Don't More People Want to Change the World?
Healthcare is critical. But healthcare will never be fixed to a point where we can say that it's done. Instead, it's about looking at things in new ways, exploring new ideas for changing behaviour to improve outcomes. For everyone. So, why don't more people try to do different?

Patient Truth is Out There
Patient centricity, patient focus, patients first – words that are on everyone’s lips these days. But what do they really mean? Where does the patient voice fit in? And what do we stand to gain by really listening to patients?  We spoke to patients, academics, Pharma, not-for-profit and industry professionals to find out the value of the patient voice. The power it holds to transform health outcomes, which benefits not only the healthcare system but also the pharmaceutical industry.  Download our white paper and explore:  What people mean when they talk about patient centricity The benefits of listening to patients – for patients, Pharma and the healthcare system as a whole The challenges to capturing the patient voice and how technology can help deliver it How Pharma should evolve its practices to drive patient activation

Getting to theTruth
https://frontera-group.com/gettingtothetruth/Without the patient voice, how close are we to the truth? How real is the picture that we have of the patient experience of a disease? If we don’t truly understand patients’ priorities and needs, how likely are we to engage them to be more actively involved in their health; to make better decisions and, ultimately, achieve better outcomes?Listen to our panel of experts as they explore the power of the patient voice:How engaging patients is key to make them active participants in their health and help them live longer, healthier livesHow to harness patient voices to deliver better communication strategies that drive brand differentiationHow the patient voice in integral to developing mHealth tools that truly drive change in behaviourHow technology can help capture the patient voice and understand their priorities and needs
