“With digital disruption and current market dynamics, information and HCP/Patient engagement have become just as important as R&D for our pharma clients. The combination of Publicis Health’s industry knowledge, Epsilon’s data and technology, and Sapient’s digital business transformation is unparalleled in the industry,” said Ansal. “I am excited to help seamlessly integrate our network and advance our client capabilities to the new digital economy.”
