Value of Insights Driving Organizational Performance

Value of Insights

We’ve all heard of the word “insight” in life science organizations, but what exactly does it mean and how does it provide value? According to Forbes, “insights are generated by analyzing information and drawing conclusions.”

Consequently, insights affect all aspects of an organization such as marketing, medical affairs, and commercial teams. When used effectively, they are able to drive strategic business decisions, improve performance, and contribute to the organization’s bottom line. Therefore, it is important that life science organizations have the right tools that constantly generate valuable insights for decision-makers across the organization.

Insights Are Everywhere

The most valuable insights for pharmaceutical or medical device companies tend to be drawn from customer-oriented data, like contracts or pricing and reimbursement information. However, other helpful insights arise from internal performance indicators like field coaching reports, clinical assets, and promotional materials.

Accessing these various types of insights will help guide business decisions that impact your overall organizational performance. Depending on the data and insights at your fingertips, you may decide to modify your customer approach, target a specific geographic location, or market a product or drug differently.

Insights Need Maintenance 

Not only do insights yield high returns, but they also challenge you to be more strategic in your thinking. Data that provides you and your team with actionable insights will continuously push you in new directions.

However, constant insight management is needed to maintain a competitive advantage in the way you coach your sales team, target your customers, and market your products. Utilizing a digital tool that puts all of your insights at the forefront, will help you effectively manage your key insights, so management and decision-making is organized and efficient.

Insights Live Forever

It is also important to note that insights do not expire. They provide lasting value to your organization and you can frequently revisit them. Insights help you understand how your business operates and guide you in deciding how it should operate moving forward.

Whether it be targeting specific physicians with a new drug or indication, or better understanding market access barriers in a specific region, as long as they maintain alignment with your strategy, insights can be treated as an asset.

Insights Driven by Technology

Unfortunately, insights can get lost in translation, but with the right technology, they can be easily identified and understood. TikaMobile, aggregates data from a variety of disparate data sources from a multitude of partners, turning that data into actionable insights for your commercial, medical affairs, and marketing teams to be more strategic and successful cross-functionally and in the marketplace.

Insights will continue to be vastly important in the changing landscape of the life sciences industry, where data is at the heart of every business decision. Equipping your team with high quality tools with valuable insights at their fingertips will ultimately drive organizational performance.
