Competitive Intelligence

Major healthcare industry players (more than 50% of the top pharma and medical device manufacturers) are still hesitant in engaging with patients and other stakeholders in the value chain through social media channels. The returns on expenses meted out for social media tracking is difficult to directly equate with sales but definitely helps enhancing it in the long run.

Pharmaceutical Drug Analogue Based Forecasting Tool

The Pukka tool provides access to qualitative and quantitative (U.S. sales) data of over 100 brands for United States market with more brands being added every year. Comparison models frequently present inaccurate predictions if the brands being considered have multiple indications or if brands being considered are only top selling prescriptions, however Pukka considers only those drugs that are FDA approved for single indication only and comprises of both top selling brands as well as those performing below par thus presenting an extremely realistic view of the comparison result.

Pukka currently offers analog forecasting for major disease categories such as oncology, metabolic disorder, cardiovascular, central nervous system, skin disease, respiratory, pain management, hematology, urology, autoimmune and auto inflammatory diseases. The database also presents market revenue for United States from approval to 2015 and a forecast of sales to 2022 for all 100 brands!
