Clinigen is a rapidly growing, global speciality pharmaceutical and services company. Its mission is to deliver the right medicine, to the right patient, at the right time.
But what makes Clinigen different is the combination of its businesses. They complement each other across the lifecycle of medicine – from clinical trials to unlicensed and licensed supply, increasing access to medicines and improving the lives of patients.
Omobono has been working with Clinigen for a number of years, augmenting their teams and focusing on both defining UX strategy and being heavily involved in the development of their new online ordering platform.
Clinigen needed to undergo a major digital transformation programme. It had to rationalise its complex set of ERPs and change how it serviced healthcare professionals globally.
Previously ordering medicine through Clinigen was a convoluted process using existing legacy systems or contacting customer services.
The key challenge was to simplify the customer experience and bring together all the aspects of ordering general and managed access medicine into a single solution, one that could enable self-service on a global scale.
Earning trust through a seamless digital experience
Clinigen were totally committed to delivering a world-class customer experience through the development of a new ordering platform called Clinigen Direct. The platform enables hospital pharmacists and clinicians to order licensed, unlicensed and commercial medicines online through a self-service global portal.
Clinigen Direct allows life-saving medicines to be purchased online, even though they are challenging to source and transport through a complex global regulatory environment.
As healthcare professionals are not used to ordering medicines in this way, the entire process had to be incredibly simple to use and inspire trust.
We used primary research to establish the pain points for healthcare professionals, and delivered our transformation programme in ‘slices’, allowing us to get to market quickly, learn and adapt in line with feedback from real users.
The new digital solution enabled the customer service teams to focus on customer support rather than order processing. Not only can orders now be placed through the new platform, it also collates and provides data on global medicine shortages to enhance supply chain efficiency and minimise disruption.
We provided a full solution architecture and guidance – building a platform with a number of seamless integrations.
The platform is a cloud based solution built using Azure PaaS resources. Integration with the incumbent ERP and service cloud was done via REST APIs and Oracle Middleware and we utilised IDS4 as a foundational customer identity platform.
The Azure infrastructure was designed to ensure cost-effective service at scale. The platform auto scales and utilises geo-based replication to guarantee business continuity. Azure Devops provides fully automated CI/CD pipelines to provide flexible fast product iteration.
We are absolutely delighted with the results. Omobono’s nimble approach to transformation enabled us to get to market and respond to our clients’ feedback faster than ever before.
We are the digital experience company for business brands.
In today’s connected world, experience is brand.
So we help you create better experiences for your customers, employees, partners and stakeholders. Ones that work in empathy with them to achieve their goals, engage and delight them, and build brand loyalty.
