LEO Pharma personalizes consumer health information: How Sitecore powers a patient-centric solution
LEO Pharma, a global pharmaceutical firm with deep expertise in dermatology, is launching a consumer-centric solution for managing chronic skin conditions, focusing initially on psoriasis. QualityCare™ from LEO Pharma is designed to engage people aware of this disease, and provide them with tailored, relevant, and useful information about the nature of their condition and ways to address their concerns. Powered by Sitecore as a comprehensive platform for dynamic customer engagement, QualityCare™ combines a personalized digital presence and the real-time collaboration with healthcare professionals. LEO Pharma relies on the platform services from Sitecore, augmented by additional technologies, to harness its knowledge and insights about options for coping with chronic conditions.
When it comes to managing a chronic disease, consumers are going to turn to health care professionals for information about diagnosis and treatments. But when their situations involve quick remedies or the need for emotional support, people are going to seek the support of family, friends, and fellow patients. Thus personalized information delivered over the web can help to address their concerns.
For their part, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers are looking for ways to empower people with relevant information and timely insights. There is more to medical care than appointments, drugs, and treatments. In the digital age, consumers and providers are not limited to realtime conversations and office visits.
In fact, digital information may have an impact on the overall quality of care. According to a recent Federal government report, “Consumer health information delivered through digital channels may effectively engage consumers, enhance traditional clinical interventions, and improve both intermediate and clinical health outcomes.”
Let’s consider how an innovative application can build on this trend through personalized information delivery.
Sitecore, a comprehensive platform for dynamic customer engagement, powers this consumer-centric solution. QualityCare™ also includes a variety of complementary technologies. LEO Pharma retains the intellectual property rights to QualityCare™.

With the development and digital branding expertise of Vertic, its systems integration partner, LEO Pharma manages customer experiences and harnesses its expertise to deliver relevant information.
