Patient Reach Guarantee by DeepIntent
The healthcare advertising company DeepIntent will now guarantee its clients on the number of verified patients reached across connected TV (CTV), display, and digital video by programmatic campaigns on its demand side platform.
DeepIntent’s Patient Reach Guarantee states that their content will reach verified patients, as defined by medical claims codes. “By harnessing the power of privacy-safe machine learning with real-world clinical and pharmacy claims data, DeepIntent can confidently predict and guarantee how many qualified patients can be reached during a given period across formats. This is a first for digital campaigns in healthcare, which now can benefit from the scale afforded by programmatic trading with a committed level of performance,” said John Mangano, Senior Vice President, Analytics, at DeepIntent. “By backing up our proprietary technology with an industry-leading guarantee, DeepIntent is the clear choice for healthcare marketers that value verifiable performance at scale.”
The unique offering is possible due to the company’s patented technology, DeepIntent Outcomes, which links real-world clinical data with impression data to measure and optimize live campaigns. It allows DeepIntent to precisely predict the number of on-target patients that a given campaign can reach across all formats. Currently, the Patient Reach Guarantee is available for most common diseases, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and plaque psoriasis, as well as rare diseases affecting smaller patient populations.

Teva Stymies Austedo Generic Release
Teva’s sales of tardive dyskinesia (TD) treatment Austedo hit a wall in 2021. Following the recent settlement of a lawsuit filed against Lupin last July, Teva has one less generic competitor—for now. Teva filed lawsuits against both Lupin and Aurobindo, another India-based generic company with a generic TD treatment, citing multiple patents on Austedo. Having only reached a settlement with Lupin, the generic drugmaker will not be releasing its version of Austedo in the U.S. until April 2033. The suit with Aurobindo remains unresolved.
TD is a condition that causes involuntary jerky movements, mostly in the shoulders, hips, and face. It is triggered by antipsychotic treatments such as those for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and affects 500,000 individuals in the U.S.
Lasso Launches New Publisher Suite
Lasso, an omnichannel platform for healthcare marketing and analytics, announced the launch of its new endemic Publisher Suite. This new business expansion will extend the same end-to-end platform solutions Lasso previously pioneered for healthcare marketers to endemic healthcare publishers. The Publisher Suite provides a singular dashboard with access to each module of the selling journey, including: monetization (comprehensive ad serving and programmatic tools for publisher direct sales and monetization through Lasso’s endemic advertising marketplace); extension (plan and activate audience and reach extension campaigns by leveraging Lasso Blueprint, a self-service audience builder for healthcare); and measurement (understand the end-to-end, real-world performance of campaigns with built-in Rx lift and audience quality analytics).
The platform is already connecting leading agencies such as Klick Health, Good Apple, and Fingerpaint, who are bringing high-value demand, to healthcare publishers such as GoodRx, Haymarket Media, HMP Global, The Doctor’s Channel, Global RPH, and many others. For marketers, Lasso’s platform serves as a one-stop shop, offering complete control and a harmonious experience for both endemic and non-endemic campaigns.
“As healthcare marketing rapidly transitions to digital and programmatic channels, endemic healthcare publishers have had to implement fragmented technology solutions or adopt platforms that are ill-suited for the healthcare vertical to meet the opportunity,” said Eric Shih, Chief Growth Officer, Lasso. “With the introduction of the Lasso Publisher Suite, we are now empowering these endemic publishers with best-in-class, end-to-end technology that delivers on their digital advertising and marketing needs.”
