How were the teenies? Reflecting on global healthcare and market research over the last decade
Back in 2010, I presented my perspective on what the 2010s might look like for healthcare market research and business intelligence at the BHBIA Winter Seminar. As we round out the decade, I thought it would be timely to revisit my predictions and consider which of them actually came to fruition over the last decade, which did not, and why. My first reaction, looking back over my (already horrifyingly dated looking) PowerPoint slides, was to cringe at the nickname I’d assigned to the coming years – “the teenies”. Much like “the noughties” before them, that never caught on. Fortunately, from that point on, the rest of my predictions proved a little more prescient – “on the right track, but a little wide of the mark” is how one of my colleagues summarised them.

How we helped our client maximise uptake and fine-tune the marketing strategy for their vaccine product in China
Our client’s vaccine to protect against a condition prevalent in older adults had recently launched and secondary research was required to enable them to understand more about their target healthcare consumer and attitudes to health, well-being and vaccination. They needed to build a complete picture of how consumers are influenced, such as whether they are more influenced by HCP advice or online forums and social media. Furthermore they needed to develop an understanding for other out-of-pocket (OOP) competitor vaccines and what the future healthcare initiatives mean for vaccination in general.
