Client: Pharma

Target Audience: Healthcare Professionals (HCPs)


The eDetail Aid serves as a critical tool in pharmaceutical communication, bridging the gap between healthcare professionals and essential medical information. In the rapidly evolving landscape of healthcare, ensuring the accuracy, integrity, and regulatory compliance of such materials is paramount.

The project detailed in this case study exemplifies the meticulous process involved in addressing comments and annotations within the eDetail Aid, highlighting the collaborative efforts and strategic interventions required to uphold the highest standards of scientific rigor and quality.


The development of eDetail Aid represents a multifaceted endeavor, encompassing not only the dissemination of crucial medical information but also the adherence to stringent regulatory guidelines and the integration of evolving scientific evidence. Initiated in January 2023, this project embarked on a journey to enhance the scientific integrity and effectiveness of the eDetail Aid through a comprehensive review process. The scope of the project extended beyond mere revisions, necessitating a meticulous examination of each component to ensure alignment with current scientific evidence and regulatory standards.

As the project unfolded, it became apparent that the challenges inherent in addressing comments and annotations within the eDetail Aid were as diverse as they were complex. From substantiating claims with robust evidence to navigating changes in referencing style and enhancing data representation, each aspect demanded meticulous attention to detail and innovative problem-solving. However, amidst these challenges lay opportunities for collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement.

Through strategic planning, collaborative engagement, and a commitment to excellence, Turacoz embarked on a journey to navigate these challenges and elevate the quality of the eDetail Aid to new heights. The following sections provide a detailed exploration of the challenges encountered, the strategies employed, and the outcomes achieved, shedding light on the intricacies of pharmaceutical communication and the pivotal role of medical writing agencies in advancing scientific knowledge and innovation.


Navigating through a non-editable document marked by an assortment of comments presented multifaceted challenges, requiring meticulous attention to detail and strategic problem-solving:

  • Substantiating Claims: The need to substantiate claims with provided references posed a fundamental challenge. Each assertion had to be rigorously supported by robust scientific evidence to ensure credibility and reliability.
  • Implementing Changes in Referencing Style: Adapting to changes in referencing style demanded a thorough understanding of citation formats and adherence to specific guidelines, adding complexity to the editing process.
  • Adding References for Data Verification: Incorporating references for data verification was essential for ensuring the accuracy and validity of the information presented. This involved extensive research and meticulous selection of appropriate sources.
  • Editing Data Representation: Enhancing data representation, including adding titles, p-values, and ensuring accuracy in graphs, required precision and attention to detail. Transforming non-editable graphs into informative visuals posed a unique challenge, necessitating innovative solutions.
  • Conducting Extensive Literature Searches: The demand for an extensive literature search to update content with citations and references for existing material added another layer of complexity. This involved sourcing the most recent API/SmPC data specific to various countries, requiring comprehensive research skills and in-depth knowledge of regulatory requirements.
