To improve the medical experience and connection of patients to healthcare professionals (HCP) in real time, an appeal has gone out to practitioners in the sector to leverage communication and networking.

This was the submission of leading HCP at the launch of the IQVIA HCPSpace in Lagos.

Speaking at the event, Chairman of the occasion and President, Nigerian Academy of Pharmacy, Prince Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi, noted that IQVIA’s HCPSpace is a bridge-building tool that will encourage collaboration among healthcare providers whilst driving efficiency, performance and capacity utilization as well as innovation in the nation’s health space as a whole.


“I would like to commend IQVIA for trying to crack a problem that has remained with Nigeria for quite a while given the numbers of government committees that had been set up in the past to solve the challenge of interprofessional collaboration and promote harmony in the health space. This tool will be a blessing as it will radically positively alter the health landscape and reduce unnecessary competition among professionals,” he stated.

Highlighting the initiative, Country Manager, West Africa, IQVIA, Remi Adeseun, said it was the surmise of the communiqué issued by the Nigeria Academy of Pharmacy in collaboration with the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), which underscored the need to deepen the concept of universal communication and collaboration among healthcare professionals via tools that are yielding documented benefits and gains in the healthcare sector across the world.

“We are confident that the IQVIA HCPSpace will help improve the healthcare professionals’ practice, patient experience and produce desired healthcare outcomes. This is premised around the tool’s great value proposition for individual and general development, knowledge sharing and relationship building, and I urge all persons who recognise the need to take Nigeria healthcare to the level of proficiency and prominence that it deserves on the world stage to embrace this platform,” Adeseun.
