Novartis has appointed a senior retail expert to the new post of chief digital officer, following a similar move by GlaxoSmithKline last month, underscoring how drugmakers are grappling with the impact of new technology. Pharmaceutical companies face a range of challenges from the digital world as mobile apps offer patients new ways to monitor their health and online communications with prescribers and consumers become routine. Bertrand Bodson, currently chief digital and marketing officer for Sainsbury's Argos chain, will start in his new role on Jan. 1, 2018, and report directly to CEO Joe Jimenez, the Swiss drugmaker said on Thursday.
Despite the success of new products, GlaxoSmithKline plc (GSK) believes that its overall performance has been weaker than it would have liked.
