Episode 1: Stakeholder Engagement with Dan Hennessy

Peg Crowley, Ph.D., MBA, Founder & President of Zipher Medical Affairs meets with Dan Hennessy, Ph.D., MBA, Vice President of Strategic Excellence at EMD Serono to discuss a fresh look at the complexity of the matrix of stakeholders who play a critical role in the patient care cycle, including the layers of individuals in the clinics and hospitals, in healthcare economy, and in advocacy societies. Drs. Crowley and Hennessy, who combined have about 35 years of experience in industry, address the importance of maintaining scientific exchange between the stakeholders and Medical Affairs organizations during a pandemic, which has created an unanticipated interruption to former methods of engaging with stakeholders. They offer an overview of the challenges with the current channels of communication as well as suggestions on how to maintain previously established relationships and how to navigate the development of new engagements in our current landscape of communication. They also discuss the key risks of not engaging with stakeholders, and not building and maintaining those relationships effectively. Lastly, they examine the future of communication with stakeholders in the short-term and long-term and how to adapt with this constantly changing environment during a pandemic.
