Inspire communities are vibrant online spaces where patients and caregivers engage to find support and practical information. Community sponsorships and branding opportunities are available to increase awareness of your brand.
Unique partnerships with leading patient advocacy organizations are part of what makes Inspire communities so trusted and valuable: in each case, Inspire is the exclusive provider of the association's health community. This dedicated relationship is a powerful method of communicating with and learning from active, engaged patients and caregivers. As patients engage with one another, they build long-term attachment, returning to the community often. Inspire supports these patients with live moderators, a help desk, and educational materials. Inspire also sends daily e-mails to patients with links to new activity in the communities and invitations to participate in surveys and clinical trials, and to receive educational materials. Patients are extraordinarily receptive to such invitations, and response rates greater than 25% are not unusual.
When Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) prepared to launch its metastatic breast cancer medicine IXEMPRA, BMS partnered with Inspire on a project that resulted in the Advanced Breast Cancer Support Community. Working with BMS and a coalition of 13 breast cancer groups, including Living Beyond Breast Cancer, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Breastcancer.org, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, AdvancedBC.org, and the Young Survival Coalition, Inspire provided the technical expertise, design, and online community development.
By sponsoring a community, sponsors will be recognized by patients and national patient advocacy groups as leaders. For more information, contact Amir Lewkowicz, Vice President of Partnerships, at email@example.com or (617) 372-2636.
