How Lilly is Using Social Media to Attract More People to Research
  • Elizabeth Mascherino - Advisor, Clinical Innovation, Eli Lilly
more

Clinical trials are necessary to advance medicine, yet less than 5% of the population participates. Traditional patient engagement methods are stale and in need of an overhaul. Simply placing clip art recruitment materials on social media sites is not enough. In a recent US survey, 50% of individuals reported not being aware of clinical trials, yet >90% had a favorable opinion. This represents a real opportunity for the industry to educate and empower individuals to learn more and explore clinical trial opportunities in novel ways. Lilly has a digital persona dedicated to making clinical trials more engaging and accessible. Through this persona, we are working to: • Position Lilly as a trusted source of information about clinical research • Cultivate a relationship with the public that over the long term nurtures people towards higher levels of understanding, commitment and participation • And ultimately, increase enrollment rates in Lilly clinical trials. This presentation will explore how @LillyTrials is leveraging Tweetchats, Hashtag campaigns, Paid Video campaigns and other social media tactics to attract, engage and activate a largely untapped audience.
