Associate Product Manager - Market Access Aug 24, 2018 Parsippany, NJ Description
Market Access is one of the largest business units in the DRG family. Broadly, our Market Access business unit is a commercialization partner to pharmaceutical manufacturers, helping ensure that all patients who would benefit from a drug get easy, appropriate, and maintained access – at the right price. To over-simplify, earning “access” requires that drug companies can communicate value to health plans (the drug is effective, has few side-effects, is relatively inexpensive, etc.), and that health plans – in turn – cover the drug preferentially for their plan members. It also requires that physicians are informed, and prescribe the drug when appropriate.
The Associate Product Manager will play a critical role in turning DRG’s proprietary data assets and deep clinical expertise into simple yet actionable insights for clients. Associate Product Managers are responsible for the ongoing operation, maintenance, and development of our software products and mobile solutions, and will help shape products as the healthcare landscape – and our clients – evolve.
If you’re a driven problem-solver and passionate about our healthcare system, let’s talk. While our products look like software, our solutions drive decision-making in ways that shape innovation in healthcare by ensuring that there is a market for innovative drugs that treat and cure disease.
