CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The healthcare marketplace is rapidly and sometimes chaotically evolving. In today's healthcare environment, private and public payers are assuming greater power and control. Payer coverage, support or opposition plays a critical role in the success or failure for a new biopharmaceutical product. Any organization hoping to win in this competitive marketplace must understand how to navigate through the "payer ecosystem."
Bio-pharma companies are increasingly investing in payer landscape research to better understand and manage the payer ecosystem. Recent research by benchmarking firm, Best Practices, LLC found that up to 86% of participating companies use payer landscape research tactics to better understand payer decision making.
