DHPC service

Do you need to report a new contraindication, follow-up instruction, updated product-specific risk minimization materials, or suspected product defects?
The Direct Healthcare Professional Communication (DHPC) is a cost-effective and comprehensive way to reach a wide range of healthcare professionals to promote correct and safe use of pharmaceuticals. You can select the desired target groups for your message, such as physicians, pharmacies, hospital pharmacies and medicine centers. The target group of physicians is defined by the speciality of the physicians, in addition, physicians’ special competences can be used as a delimitation criterion. See the list here.

We distribute DHPCs in a multi-channel manner; digitally and by letter, as well as in Pharmaca Fennica services in conjunction with other pharmaceutical information. DHPCs can also be published in several different languages. The service is implemented in cooperation with the Finnish Medical Association (FMA).

We cover all aspects of DHPC communication:
• collecting required address information
• printing the letter and/or producing an email version
• delivering the letters and emails to a specified target group
• publishing the DHPC in Pharmaca Fennica services (e.g. pharmacafennica.fi and Pharmaca Fennica mobile application)
