Medical Communications & Field-Based Medical Teams

Impactful, compliant, strategically designed communications programs that positively influence key stakeholders

You’ve conducted the trials, gathered the evidence, substantiated value for regulators, and operationalized your market access strategy. Now let’s take your value messages to market.

Parexel combines therapeutic expertise with proprietary multi-channel solutions to develop communications and field programs that translate evidence of product value into comprehensive industry-compliant communications.

Medical communications

Our team crafts authentic stories that are as simple and compelling as they are scientifically valid. With the patient voice deeply rooted in our culture, it’s also a prominent feature in our communications strategies.

We build robust scientific communications platforms that creatively deliver on clearly articulated objectives:

Creating positive perceptions with experts

Strengthening relationships with scientific, medical, payer, and other healthcare expert communities is key to shaping an understanding of product value and unmet need. Events hosted for information exchange and relationship-building are key in this regard, and our extensive experience includes advisory boards, steering committees, symposia, expert forums, global investigator meetings, and educational webinars.

Capturing attention and commitment from busy sites

We promote ongoing scientific dialogue and engagement at every stage of development, whether at an investigator meeting or through study materials. The aim is not only to educate, enroll and retain sites, but also to drive interest and build a sense of community.

Elevating the patient voice

Patient engagement specialists collaborate regularly with patients and caregivers through our Patient Advisory Council. Their insights enable us to create educational programs and materials that are accessible to diverse patient populations and that truly resonate.

Presenting clinical results through compelling publications

Presenting clinical and real-world evidence through peer-reviewed publications is essential to broadly communicating the value of your product. Parexel is a publications powerhouse. Our highly skilled medical writers, many of whom are active members of the International Society of Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP), are experts in streamlining complex data. In the past five years, we’ve created and managed over 120 strategic publication plans, including the development of hundreds of congress publications and manuscripts.
