At Across Health, Philip focuses on the development and implementation of new methodologies, metrics and KPIs to assess the impact and profitability of relevant marketing tools in the new, digital environment.

These services provide our clients with a valuable decision aid when allocating and optimizing resources: globally, Pharma has moved towards a careful stakeholder prioritization paradigm, and a clear understanding of how to best deploy digital and fusion marketing tactics is a must-have on the road to success.
