SEPTEMBER 2019 Research Alert

This month we added five new studies to the Best Practice Database, the research repository for Best Practices, LLC. This month's new studies involve two topical areas: co-pay accumulators and patient advocacy groups. Two of the new studies are focused on the timely issue of co-pay accumulator programs: the first looks at the impact that these payer programs are having on patients' out-of-pocket costs; the second study examines the strategies pharma is using to counter the programs and ensure patient access. The remaining three studies examine the current state of patient advocacy group collaboration: the third study examines effective structure and communication approaches for pharma; the fourth looks at creating effective advocacy partnerships, and the final study is focused on the use of technology and current trends in the patient advocacy space.

The new Best Practices, LLC studies listed below under Newly Added Research explore how leading companies have made their operations more effective across these different areas.
