Health Economics & Outcomes Research groups are involved in many activities that touch on the medical affairs function, such as issues around quality of life and outcomes research. With this overlap come questions about the role of medical affairs in collecting and using health outcomes data.
Best Practices®, LLC conducted this study to inform medical affairs and health outcomes leaders at biopharma companies on benchmarks around the role of medical affairs in collecting and utilizing health outcomes data. In particular, the study presents benchmarks and insights around medical affairs involvement in health outcomes activities, how health outcomes data informs medical affairs' decisions and types of health outcomes data utilized by patients, payers and providers.
This study will inform medical affairs and health outcomes leaders on these questions and others regarding the role of medical affairs in collecting and utilizing health outcomes data.

MA takes more leading responsibilities in data collection in younger HO groups. In contrast, company size doesn’t have a significant affect on MA’s role in collecting HO data.
Twenty-three medical affairs leaders at 23 top life-science companies participated in this study. In addition, five deep-dive executive interviews were conducted with selected participants.
