Accenture, in partnership with Salesforce, has created the Accenture Connected Physician Solution to help life sciences companies improve customer and patient engagement leveraging cloud, social and mobile technologies.
The collaboration will play a critical role in helping life sciences companies make the move from a product orientation to a patient outcome orientation, Accenture said.
The Accenture Connected Physician Solution provides physicians with an efficient way to access disease, treatment and product information. Doctors get an opportunity to collaborate in real time with fellow doctors and medically trained pharmaceutical experts.
The solution builds on Accenture’s portfolio of Salesforce industry-based solutions, which includes offerings for the communications and consumer goods and services industries.
The mobile-enabled solution allows easy access across multiple platforms, providing health care professionals access to the information they need on any device, anytime. Life sciences companies can capture information that enables them to better understand how to provide physicians with the data they need to best serve their patients.
Commenting on this development, Anne O’Riordan, global industry managing director for Accenture’s Life Sciences practice, said, “Cloud platforms like Salesforce are providing an opportunity to link companies, physicians and patients in an ecosystem dedicated to improving health results.”
Following this implementation, Accenture Connected Physician Solution has been certified as a Salesforce Fullforce Industry Solution.
In addition to the healthcare and life sciences industry, Accenture has achieved Fullforce Master Certifications in the communications and financial services industries, as well as in the Sales Cloud, Service Cloud and SalesforcePlatform for a total of six Fullforce Master Certifications in salesforce.com’s leading industries and clouds.
