In preparation for partnering meetings in Japan, our client needed quick, but insightful understanding of diabetes treatment from the perspective of the patient. In response, KMK mined Tobyo, a social media website to analyze diabetes patient diaries and develop a deep dive view of the Japanese diabetes patient experience.
Market research in social media is the process of gathering quantitative and/or qualitative data from social media platforms to understand social, consumer, or market trends. In this case study, a client needed to understand the patient flow of a long-term disease in the global market to be better prepared for a partnering meeting in Japan. KMK provided deeper understanding of the T2D patient experience in Japan to support our client’s commercial decisions.
