PM360, a leading trade magazine for marketing decision makers in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, and diagnostics industries, has named Insulet’s Omnipod and InStep Health’s Omnichannel marketing campaign the Point of Care Trailblazer 2021 GOLD winner.

Insulet’s Omnipod is a tubeless, waterproof wearable device created to continuously deliver insulin to patients living with diabetes. To help patients, providers, caregivers, and pharmacists understand the device, InStep Health created an omnichannel marketing campaign to educate and inspire conversations between patients and providers—a particularly challenging goal throughout the COVID pandemic.

Mike Byrnes, Chief of Sales at InStep Health, explains, “We identified specific areas of the> country to launch the campaign. Then, provided Omnipod’s sales force with a list of HCPs and pharmacists that were part of the campaign to reach out to them personally. To help start conversations, we provided video, an e-brochure, campaign flight dates, and other resources to educate providers about the InStep Health Omnipod program.”

Since 2009, the PM360 Trailblazer Awards have recognized outstanding achievement and innovation in healthcare marketing. Each year, nominations are judged by the PM360 Editorial> Advisory Board, a distinguished cross-section of industry experts. Initiatives are selected in 19 distinct categories. Both Silver and Gold winners were selected in each category for their ability to stand out in the complex, ever-changing healthcare environment, and were judged on content, format, success in reaching the targeted audience, and overall quality.

“Communication, connection, and engagement all took on new meanings these past 18 months as we were forced to isolate due to the pandemic,” says Anna Stashower, CEO and Publisher of PM360. “But marketers rose to the occasion exploring new technology, tactics, and strategies to help life sciences companies get their message out to customers with the information they needed. Our Initiative Award winners are a representation of that achievement and more, as several of these campaigns displayed deep empathy and understanding as well as a desire to reach a more diverse set of patients than ever before.”

In total, 67 winners were honored across all categories during a virtual awards ceremony on September 23, 2021. The winners will be featured in the October issue of PM360 and on
