Improving patient persistency through solution co-design
Medication drop off and discontinuation are not only challenges for the life sciences industry, it can have a huge impact on disease control and patient outcomes. merakoi works with Patient Experts to understand the “why”, and to co-design solutions that help to inform and support patients through their treatment journey.

Knowing my experiences as a patient shaped the core of this patient support program and helped to make it truly patient centric. The whole experience has been very empowering.

Delivering an optimal patient trial experience through collaboration - from study co-design to activation and evaluation
Many life sciences and digital health companies struggle with clinical trial recruitment and retention. By working early in the clinical development phase with our Patient Expert Panels, companies can design better studies, more meaningful ePROs, and communication plans  that will drive better recruitment and retention throughout the study.

Delivering insights and solutions that align to key business objectives
All too often, we have heard how internal stakeholders do not see the true value of patient collaboration. Although there are many reasons for this, we have found that aligning key stakeholders at the beginning of a project, identifying what a successful outcome would be, and clearly communicating that to our Patient Experts, means we can deliver real value to clients and partners.

The project I worked on gave me the autonomy to express my ideas and make my contribution. The merakoi team was always there for me, giving me instructions and time to work on the tasks. It was really a great growth experience.
Advocate & merakoi Patient Expert
Ensuring that all patients - no matter their location, race or socioeconomic status - are able to access treatments, information and support
We have heard from many Patient Experts how people living in rural areas or certain geographies, those with different ethnic backgrounds or even certain disabilities have difficulty accessing treatment, information and support. By bringing those voices into projects through Patient Experts and their communities, we can identify and address unmet needs of patients.

As a patient advocate, it’s not only about what you know it's about making sure people and companies care. Merakoi is an excellent beacon for both.

Co-design solutions, value propositions and communications plans that set you up for success
Too often, companies create digital solutions for patients and then face the immense challenge of recruitment and retention. By collaborating with Patient Experts (and healthcare professionals) throughout the development process, we can help you address obstacles and barriers, and co-design value propositions that speak to prescribers and patients - reducing the risk around your solution and making a business case that also appeals to investors and payers alike!

Nobody can walk in our shoes or live 24hrs with our disease and the challenges we face, and patients can play a crucial role in shaping the future of care if only we give them a seat at the table.
