MediMedia Managed Markets, an ICON Company, Wins Two Gold Industry Awards for Data Analytics and Healthcare Communications


ICON plc, (NASDAQ:ICLR)) a global provider of drug development
solutions and services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical
device industries, today announced that MediMedia Managed Markets, an
ICON company, has received two gold industry awards in recognition of
innovative customer solutions.

MediMedia was awarded gold for the Best Use of Data Analytics at the 2017
Medical Marketing & Media (MM&M) Healthcare Awards
. The
award recognised MediMedia's work on a stakeholder mapping and
segmentation project for a pharma customer, which involved mapping
hospitals to health systems, integrated delivery networks, group
purchasing organisations and accountable care organisations (ACOs).
MediMedia developed a fully integrated data ecosystem, including data
from 17 sources, that provided visibility across all customer types and
standardised performance measurement and reporting. The analysis and
supporting data ultimately helped to refine brand market access
strategy; revise sales alignment; and develop resources for
underperforming segments. Results included expanded inpatient formulary
coverage and improved utilisation rates with both system-affiliated and
ACO-affiliated consumers.

MediMedia also won gold in the Digital Media Mobile App category at the 2017
MarCom Awards
, a global awards programme that honours excellence in
marketing and communication. MediMedia was a winner for developing a
Local Care Center Finder App for Otsuka America Pharmaceutical Inc. The
app, which is part of Otsuka's
ASSURE Program
™, helps patients find alternate locations, such as
retail pharmacies and infusion centers, where they can receive their
prescribed injection from a licensed healthcare professional.

In addition to the two gold awards, Jodie McVan, Head Creative Services,
Global Access, Commercialisation and Communications, has also been
selected as a finalist in the 2017
Stevie Awards for Women in Business
. More than 1,500 entries were
submitted in 2017 and Jodie was selected as a finalist in the Woman of
the Year - Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations category. Winners
will be announced at a ceremony in New York on 14 November.

Commenting on the awards, Ramita Tandon, EVP, ICON Commercialisation &
Outcomes, said: "We are honoured to be recognised as the industry's
best for mapping key stakeholders to support Market Access strategies
and improving product utilisation. ICON provides the real world
evidence-based expertise, insights, and tools to leverage our deeper
understanding of patient experiences and priorities, while accelerating
market access for products that are truly aligned to patient, payer, and
