TRx lifts are not always the measure of success of POC marketing campaigns. The key is to develop a solid ROI methodology by following these guidelines:

  1. Proper program evaluation and execution: The definition of program objectives is critical to your ability to measure program impact and what metric determines your ROI analysis. For example, a clinical messaging POC campaign might focus on patient education/support opportunities. Therefore, the ROI should be based on how the campaign impacted enrollment not TRx.

  2. Data access: A physician-centered program such as a patients’ savings coupon program/notification to the HCP in the EHR at the point of prescription should be able to capture at least the NPI information about the physician that can enable you to segment or isolate the physicians reached. If not, you will not be able to distinguish between the test and control HCP population and it will be almost impossible to measure ROI.

  3. Program data analysis: ROI can be calculated from the measurement methodology and you can also identify and analyze the non-monetary benefits of the program. Meanwhile, the length of the program will determine what methodology to use (time series regression analysis or a test/control analysis ROI methodology).
