Enhancing everyday practice, changing patients’ lives


Digital tool demonstrates workflow upgrades, patient impact

A biopharma client* approached Speaking of Science to help them develop a digital tool that would allow the field force to quickly and simply demonstrate the value of integrating a liquid biopsy testing approach into their practice. This involved taking a deep dive into our target audience’s needs and pain points to deliver a calculator that visualizes not only practice enhancements, but meaningful, potentially life-changing impact to patients.

Our high-level goals were to: 
1. Validate giving doctors more control over their time thru faster test results 
2. Provide downloadable report functionality as a follow-up resource

What we heard

Our insight driven design: more patients receive guideline-complete results, more patients with actionable biomarker identified—on a shorter timeline

We learned that many physicians rely on SOC tissue testing for cancer diagnoses but are open to alternative genomic profiling tools, particularly those that are well-validated and offer both practice efficiencies and improvements to patient care. Drawing on published literature, we developed an interactive “Impact Calculator” to allow HCPs to quickly visualize how a liquid biopsy testing approach could enable their practice to provide complete genomic results to more patients, identify more patients eligible for biomarker-driven therapy, and return test results — enabling faster time-to-treat — in a fraction of the time as tissue testing.
