How are market access teams achieving success in today's challenging market?

In the light of unprecedented operational challenges, the pressure on market access teams continues to build as the specific needs of multiple stakeholders grow ever greater. Ongoing payer engagement, pricing, and reimbursement planning, HCP/KOL interaction, and value message refinement present a complex mix of challenges, often shaped by local practice and custom. So, how are market access teams structured and what are the skills, competencies, and trends that influence their work?

For a complete understanding of the trends that are driving market access policy, practice and success we surveyed 100 US and Western European market access professionals and have presented their valuable opinions and insights in Market Access Team Structure and Function 2020.
