DECEMBER 2018 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 all involve field medical teams and explore two key aspects of these field specialists: succeeding in global markets and serving payer organizations. Two of the studies look at improving the impact of these field teams in major global markets and examine issues such as staffing, activities and productivity. The remaining three studies represent a departure for Best Practices, LLC insofar as the respondents are from payer organizations, not pharma companies. The studies revolve around how field medical teams impact formulary success for pharma products. The documents cover topics such as how field teams support payer responsibilities, provide the information payers want and deliver value to payers. The last document includes a chapter where payers rank the overall quality of 11 pharma companies' field medical teams.

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.
