Crossix Announces DIFA Data Stream to Provide Customers with Open Access to Granular DIFA Data

Underlying marketing performance data provides granularity while preserving privacy

NEW YORK--()--Crossix announced today the launch of DIFA Data Stream, the latest enhancement to its industry leading marketing analytics platform, Crossix DIFA™. More than 150 health brands use DIFA to understand and improve the impact of their marketing investments on patient and healthcare provider (HCP) behavior. With DIFA Data Stream, all underlying DIFA data will be available as a direct data feed to marketers’ data warehouses or data lake environments to support further in-house analytics and reporting.

As more life sciences customers bring commercial data in-house, it is critical to establish appropriate privacy-safe methodologies for in-house analytics. DIFA Data Stream provides opportunities for deep-dives into the analytics, while virtually eliminating privacy and re-identification risks associated with using de-identified patient-level information. The micro-cohorts protect the privacy of individuals, while aligning with both HIPAA guidelines and the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) Code of Conduct for measurement of digital health campaigns.

DIFA Data Stream will be available for all DIFA products, providing open and direct access to life sciences companies at no additional cost. Clients will often have access to millions of data points that can be used for more granular marketing analyses, based on campaign size. Future versions planned for later this year will include additional data, beyond what is currently available in DIFA, delivering granular, micro-cohort metrics.

“Advanced analytics has become the industry standard to drive marketing ROI. The next logical step is for customers to be able to integrate their marketing performance data with the rest of their commercial data,” said Dan Stein, SVP of Product Strategy at Crossix. “With DIFA Data Stream, customers can tap into the full power of the data, without compromising privacy or quality.”
