Digital Landscape: Inflammatory Bowel Disease


The Digital Landscape Inflammatory Bowel Disease report analyzes digital activities undertaken by pharma in support of disease-modifying therapies for mild-to-moderate, and moderate-to-severe Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis (UC).

Key Highlights

- US Patients: AbbVie offers the strongest support for IBD patients in the US, particularly branded, unbranded and mobile app. Janssen was the most active competitor in the branded and social media spaces in 2017. Branded activity also seen from pipeline and biosimilar competitors. No IBD-specific mobile apps detected from pharma. Opportunity exists for a well-integrated unbranded campaign to support patients, linked to social media and a mobile app.
- US HCPs: Good support available for US HCPs in the IBD branded space, with Stelara and Humira activity detected from Janssen and AbbVie in 2017, respectively. Unbranded and mobile app landscapes are sparse. Opportunities may exist to develop or sponsor content with trusted non-pharma organizations; social media activity restricted to corporate accounts.
- EUCAN Patients: Good brand support for patients in Germany, the UK, and Canada, with IBD-specific activity detected from Takeda and Janssen in 2017. No multi-country unbranded from biologics manufacturers with Ferring providing the only example. Unbranded support is strongest in Germany overall, with new sites launched by Janssen and Pfizer in 2017. Social media support is weak overall; EUCAN IBD patients have access to good mobile app offerings, however none detected in Italy.
- EUCAN HCPs: The EUCAN HCP landscape is underdeveloped. Most branded activity limited to Germany or the UK with all new activity seen in the UK in 2017. The unbranded and mobile app landscapes are particularly sparse, and partnerships with non-pharma organizations may offer more effective opportunities to engage with and support HCPs.
