Study Snapshot

The impact of managed care on the pharmaceutical industry has raised a spotlight on the importance of strong pharmacy relations. Companies with world-class pharmacy relations efforts  enjoy significant competitive advantages through formulary addition, treatment guideline inclusion, and favorable reimbursement.

This 46-slide PowerPoint presentation outlines how nine benchmarked companies address a variety of pharmacy relations issues including:

  • Pharmacy relations staffing
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Organizational structures
  • Communication and coordination
  • Resource support
  • Customer programs
  • Performance measurement

The presentation includes informative graphics that review the benchmark data and detail best practices in each of the above areas. It also features 20 metrics and 10 executive narratives.

Key Findings

Best Practices, LLC identified and profiled key findings that outline seven key characteristics of top pharmacy relations departments. A sample of one key finding follows: 

  • Top pharmacy relations efforts have a specific functional home with trained staff dedicated to a pharmacy relations role.

Pharmacists' growing role in patient care and influence on drug choice and usage compel pharmaceutical companies to build a stronger relationship with these professionals via pharmacy marketing efforts.  Six of nine companies studied have a dedicated pharmacy relationships group. Those without a dedicated group all recognize a growing need to create such a group.
