Virtual, Accelerated Reach and Access
VARA is a technology-enabled service that elevates virtual pharmaceutical speaker programs to the next level. VARA is a fully-deployed service that has been refined and proven What sets VARA apart from other virtual program tactics are the exceptional metrics it generates.
Drive HCPs to programs with 25-30 minute Rep visits, allowing Reps easier access and grounds for continued engagements and conversations
As onsite pharmaceutical speaker programs become more costly and face complicated compliance hurdles, VARA provides a powerful digital alternative for live, engaging peer-to-peer events. VARA is proven to expand reach to target HCPs while greatly lowering the cost per HCP. For field Reps, VARA serves as valued peer-to-peer program that drives unparalleled access to HCPs.
Every VARA program incorporates several core characteristics:
- Flexible – Multiple virtual events are conducted each week, offering a flexible schedule that maximizes HCP attendance.
- Continuous – The program is continuously run during the year, serving as a primary tactic for Reps and creating familiarity with the format among HCPs.
- Refreshed – Program content/topics are periodically refreshed, providing an overlapping series of events by topic, with natural follow-on attendance to new program offerings.
- Rep-driven – Field Reps drive the invitation process and serve as hosts in HCP offices during virtual events, or register HCPs with the option to join on their own.
- Brief – Events are brief, 25 to 30 minutes, to align with the daily work flow of HCPs.
