The pharmaceutical industry is facing change on a monumental scale. Patents on key products are expiring, the flow of new products from pipelines is low, and the number of decision makers involved has increased. Add to this mix Health Care Reform and the way a company develops, markets, and sells their products is impacted on some level. The next 5 – 10 years will be an exciting time to be a part of this industry as it undergoes a transformation.
In this new environment sales representatives have less time with physicians, payers influence prescribing decisions, and generics are dispensed the vast majority of the time. On the commercial side of the business, companies are exploring alternatives to the ‘Reach and Frequency’ sales model that served them well for many years.
“Pharmaceutical Sales Force Effectiveness” is a consultancy-style report which identifies, assesses, and provides insights on the key challenges that industry is experiencing in growing market share through physician detailing. Through CBR Pharma Insights’ unique report writing approach and primary market research done with 200 US-based physicians, companies will be able to analyze these key issues quickly and utilize our content to support their strategic decision making.
