Ideas and insights from Pharmica's Consultants.
A few months back, I conducted an interview with a Clinical Leader in the Boston area about the state of patient centricity in healthcare. From that conversation, an interesting conclusion emerged. Patient centricity is everywhere but too often not from patients’ perspective. That is to say – the patient is at the center but the[…]
We often say that our people are our most important asset, but why can’t we answer basic questions, such as: Which projects need resources? Who is available and when? Who is over-utilized? How can we easily switch resources for different projects? Managers in the pharmaceutical industry often struggle to answer these questions, even after they[…]
Frequently here at Pharmica Consulting we encounter Office365 projects where data security is critical to the client. Preventing unauthorized access to the tools built on Office365 is a must have. Generally speaking, the Microsoft cloud platform, that is the part of the cloud stack that deals with hardware, network and infrastructure elements, is maintained by[…]
This problem has come forth several times in my InfoPath career: there is a form template that needs to be used in multiple document libraries. You want to be able to use the same template without having to maintain multiple copies for each library, but the darn submit connection is static (set up to submit[…]
Much has been written in the last few years around Microsoft’s decision to deprecate the Meeting Workspace in SharePoint 2013. This post will try not to rehash those points, but rather discuss a real world example of a client struggling with the reality that a looming SharePoint upgrade will leave them workspaceless. While many SharePoint customers found no[…]
As you may know, SharePoint 2013 has a useful feature that allows you to see preview thumbnails of documents in a library. However, thumbnails aren’t available for PDFs, and this has been a sore spot for many users. A recent request for this very functionality had me looking far and wide for a solution. One[…]
All drug development programs are not created equal, and rarely are they the same within a single therapeutic area. A project manager on a drug development team needs to optimize the team network available and utilize gained experience since a program can take many paths. As I make my initial assessment of a program, it[…]
Houdini. The name evokes mystery and mystique; myth and legend. Few people realize what a master of marketing he was and how our effortless reaction to the name is the result of a conscious and painstaking effort at shaping and managing perceptions. Houdini requires little introduction or explanation today, but that’s taking for granted his[…]
On many occasions, I have the opportunity to speak with leaders at small pharmaceutical and biotech companies. They always say, “We don’t operate like big pharma” or “I’m not interested in hearing the best practices from big pharma.” As a younger and less experienced leader from big pharma, I couldn’t fathom what they meant by[…]
Are you still using static visuals when interactive data visualization is available? What is data visualization?! Well, I’m glad you asked. Data visualization is the presentation of information in a graphical form such that insights can be gleaned or decisions made. It helps one to communicate information effectively, efficiently and clearly. In today’s environment, traditional[…]
Recently we’ve been inundated with a flood of requests for help in migrating to SharePoint 2013 — it seems that the levee is finally breaking and companies are making the switch, some of whom are going to Office 365. Like any major undertaking, companies want to ensure they are making the most of the transition,[…]
There is no way for me to tell you a consulting story about resistance-to-change more absurd than what you’ve already experienced. You know who they are, and why they cling to IE6, or Windows 95, or their 30lb PC desktop tower. In a vacuum, all alone, each reason not to change isn’t crazy – you[…]
