Market access considerations
When to start planning: 24-12 months prior to launch
Once a product is approved to go to market, you have to take some time to evaluate the evidence collected (and any gaps in evidence) and establish your product's value proposition, brand identity, and messaging strategy . You need to develop different strategies to reach payers, patients, and providers.
The complex process of compiling information from multiple sources and gaining consensus on value messages from team members across varied job titles and perspectives is no easy task. AmerisourceBergen has the experience and digital tools necessary to streamline this process and make it as efficient as possible, helping your team avoid unproductive meetings and costly missteps.
When to start planning: 6-3 months prior to launch
Another critical component of the pre-launch stage is planning ahead to ensure patients will be able to access and afford your product, both of which are necessary for your therapy to reach its target patient population.
At this stage, designing the right patient support program is key, as is ensuring that patients don't experience cost barriers at the pharmacy or site of care. AmerisourceBergen offers high-tech and high-touch patient support options customizable to the therapy and patient population.
When it comes to optimizing different aspects of the commercialization process, technology is key. For instance, a virtual meeting platform can help facilitate messaging and branding discussions. Modeling tools can help map out the investment you will need to make in a patient assistance program. And leading patient support providers automate as many steps in the access journey as possible using artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to ensure quicker speed to therapy.
