Learn how social listening can be used to map the patient’s emotional journey and how this can provide researchers with a deeper understanding of the emotional impact of the disease and treatment. Gaining a richer picture of the patient experience improves our understanding of drivers and barriers to adoption, adherence and switch behaviour.

  • Analysing a patient's emotions across disease journey stages provides us with an understanding of how the predominant emotions are evolving along with the disease stages, and at what stage the emotional challenges are the highest vs. the stage at which patients are more hopeful or ready to accept the condition. 
  • Emotional journey analysis gives us an opportunity to understand the potential factors that could lead to a better quality of life for patients.

Once the emotional journey is mapped it can be utilised to help develop patient personas. These are rich profiles that can bring to life patient segments to help brands visualise their target audience, and accordingly develop and tailor their activation strategies.  

  • The patient personas provide a complete clinical, behavioural, demographic, social and psychological view of the audience and the struggles that they face and their journey and preferences with treatment and other management techniques. 
  • Apart from clinical attributes we are also able to capture more subtle preferences, unmet needs and behavioural characteristics that the patients/caregivers have, i.e. facing social sigma, stressed work-life, depressed and sad due to isolation.
