Wego Health to Demonstrate the Importance of Patient Influencers During ePharma Summit 2016

Company will ask for a single question to show how the pharmaceutical industry can benefit from engaging patient community leaders.

New York, NY, February 24, 2016 --(PR.com)-- WEGO Health (www.wegohealth.com), an online network of consumer health opinion leaders, will be asking over 500 attendees of the 2016 ePharma Summit: “If you could ask patient influencers one question, what would that question be?”

During the three-day conference, WEGO Health will distribute cards with the question and encourage all show attendees to participate by texting their response. This effort will showcase WEGO Health’s innovative research platforms that connect health companies and agencies with its extensive network of health opinion leaders and their patient communities.

“By asking this single question, we aim to show industry leaders the importance of bringing patient leaders to the table,” says Jack Barrette, WEGO Health CEO and Co-Chairperson of ePharma Summit 2016. “Patient influencers reach tens of millions of engaged health consumers, and they are changing the game with their invaluable insights. It’s time we make a determined effort to listen.”

WEGO Health will select the most frequently asked questions, then collect recorded voice comments from patient leaders and present the findings in an online white paper to be released one week after the conference.

Running Feb. 29 through March 2 in New York City, the ePharma Summit hosts over 55 speakers, including Steve Case, Co-Founder of America Online (AOL) and Chairman and CEO of Revolution, as well as over 50 representatives from pharmaceutical companies, who will discuss the importance of digital innovation in the pharmaceutical industry. The annual event is certified as a Patients Included™ conference, which ensures patients are properly represented without being exploited.
