Available on demand: Transform Medical Affairs initiatives with fact-based solutions for improved compliance.

Zephyr Health

In today’s competitive, highly regulated environment, product success is dependent upon data and fact-based decision making. More and more, Medical Affairs teams play a pivotal role in education pre- and post-launch, and the explosion of big data in healthcare is changing how they make value-based decisions that are critical to success.

This webinar explored the challenges Medical Affairs teams have in finding a repeatable, objective and compliant solution to identify and manage their strategic programmes. With a wealth of information available, it can be difficult to sort through data and understand what is important to incorporate into research and strategy. In this session you will hear needs and use cases for having a robust data strategy when it comes to Medical Affairs success. The panelists shared best practices for making fact-based decisions that meet compliance restrictions, using powerful market insights gained from multiple data sources, to optimise strategic planning and ultimately drive product success.

The live webinar took place on Tuesday 28 June at 16.00 BST / 08.00 PST. Please click here or on the button  above/below.
