STUDY OVERVIEW

As the competitive medical device industry is expected to witness massive growth in the coming years, it is important to develop resilient Medical Affairs and Market Access teams to improve external engagement efforts and ability to differentiate its treatments. But while medical device product portfolios grow, many device manufacturers still face resource constraints that undermine the ability of emerging Medical Affairs and Market Access teams to effectively support in-line products.

Best Practices, LLC undertook this research to capture crucial staffing, resourcing, and operational performance benchmarks for Medical Affairs and Market Access teams within medical device companies. This research will help Medical Affairs and Market Access leaders determine how to build and steer their teams to ensure they effectively differentiate their products in the competitive medical device sector.
