Putting Together the Perfect Market Access Strategy with Insights

We leverage our unparalleled market access data and analysis to deliver personalized, actionable insights, from pre-launch through product maturity and down to the hyper local level to answer the most important questions your Market Access Team faces and help to supercharge your activity and results.

Integrated Delivery Networks


How should the growing power of IDNs and the move towards risk based contracting with providers affect your strategy and approach to contracting with payers?

Provider organizations that have a high level of control or responsibility for the cost of care are likely to exert more influence over the pull-through of contracts with payers for formulary placement. It is important to understand when payer contracts may be more challenging to pull through because of powerful IDNs within a payer’s network.


Health Plans and PBMs


What are payers doing to assert their position in the market and gain control by vertically integrating with PBMs and physician organizations?

MCOs are joining with PBMs and physician organizations. Examples include CVS/Aetna, UnitedHealth/OptumRX/DaVita, and Cigna/Express Scripts.  Achieving greater scale and cutting out middlemen should allow companies like CVS Health to cut medication costs in the short term, as they’ll enjoy greater leverage over the drug and device companies across the table and can realize efficiencies when they control the point of care, the means of distribution and the purse strings.


Value Based Contracting


How does the move towards value based care impact your approach to engaging payers and providers that control benefit design and delivery of care?

It is important to engage with risk-bearing providers – and the payers with whom they contract – regarding the value of drug therapies and the evidence for the effectiveness of those drugs. As the healthcare industry moves away from the fee-for-service model, it is critical to understand how payers and providers approach cost and quality.
