Session 1: Pharma Marketing

Pharmaceutical company is a commercial business licensed to research, develop, market and or distribute drugs, most commonly in the context of healthcare. The most influencing factors are raising costs of the medicines, growing risks, changing consumer needs and tightening regulations. Pharma Industries represented a US$300 bn-a-year market globally as of 2015, the World Health Organization states. The global pharmaceutical market is expected to surpass US$400 bn by 2018.

Session 2: Generic Medicines

Generic drug is the drug which is marketed without any brand name and they are basically less expensive and cost effective than the most of the branded drug. Generics drugs are cost effective alternatives from the branded drugs. Generics are similar to branded drugs in terms of purity, efficacy and are perceived to be safer as compared to new drug molecules, as they tend to be older and time tested. Pharmaceutical market of generic drugs is increasing day by day. The present communication describes various aspects and prospects of generic drugs in the world.

Session 3: Pharma Digitization

Digitalisation is fundamentally changing the healthcare industry. The Pharma industry, as a core part of healthcare, is no exception to this. New technologies and innovations are already enabling pharma companies to improve medicine development and patient care. At the same time, healthcare payers and other customers of pharma companies are demanding more and better data on the medication efficacy and improved patient quality of life. These demands cannot be fulfilled by purely traditional means.

One might say that Pharma business is undergoing a perfect storm : a concurrent transformation on multiple, unrelated areas changing the whole product lifecycle from early drug development to manufacturing and patient care. This transformation will not only challenge the incumbents but also create opportunities for new entrants outside of pharma business whose innovation and business clock speed are on a completely different level.

It is obvious that these market challenges and requirements can’t be met with the current products, business models and operations. Therefore the pharma business transformation is inevitable which will lead to the digitalisation of the pharma products, business models, operations and ultimately – the patient care. Enter the era of Pharma Digitalisation

Session 4: Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR)

In order to gain market access and remain competitive, pharmaceutical and medical technology manufacturers must be able to demonstrate clinical and economic evidence to providers, healthcare decision-makers and payers. Now more than ever, pricing pressure and regulatory restrictions are generating increased demand for this kind of outcomes evidence. In an increasingly complicated legislative environment, the methods used to gain market access have to change. Payers, physicians and patients each have their own particular interest in a product. As a scientific discipline that quantifies the economic and clinical outcomes of medical technology, HEOR helps manufacturers of pharmaceuticals and devices communicate the value of their innovations to stakeholders. It is becoming a central component for demonstrating product value, encompassing aspects such as clinical efficacy, real-world data, patient quality of life reports, opportunity cost of various treatment mixes, budget impact, and cost-effectiveness models. All of which eventually supports the allocation of resources for the listing, pricing and reimbursement of new products.

Session 5: Health Technology Assessment HTA

The International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment defines HTA as “The systematic evaluation of properties, effects, and  impacts of health care technology. It may address the direct, intended consequences of technologies as well as their indirect, unintended.

Its main purpose is to inform technology-related policymaking in health care. HTA is conducted by interdisciplinary groups using explicit analytical frameworks drawing from a variety of methods. HTA in relation to pharmaceuticals encompasses evaluations relevant to price setting or pricing policies.

Session 6: Regulatory Reimbursement

Pharmaceutical Industry regulation is the statute itself, the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938, as amended by the Drug Amendments of 1962. The statute establishes a structure; that is, it establishes the most stringent form of regulation, pre-marketing approval, from among a wide variety of regulatory mechanisms (such as pre-marketing notification, pre-marketing testing, or standard-marketing) that could have been selected. Although the statute mandates the general structure of the regulatory system, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is given wide latitude to do, in effect, anything it wants within that extraordinarily broad concept of pre-market approval. All daily administrative practice and procedure at the FDA (e.g., deciding whether a manufacturer needs to perform another study or whether to approve a product for marketing now or 10 years from now) is within the agency's discretion.

Session 7: Pharmaceutical Supply and Distribution Chain

An overall pharmaceutical pricing strategy, countries should consider regulating distribution chain mark-ups. As part of an overall pharmaceutical pricing strategy, countries should consider regulating retail chain mark-ups. If mark-ups are regulated, countries should consider using regressive mark-ups lower mark-up for higher-priced products rather than fixed percentage markups, given the incentive that the latter provides for higher-priced products to receive a higher net margin.

Countries should consider using remuneration regulation to provide incentives for supplying specific medicines (generics, low volume medicines, reimbursable medicines) or to protect specific patients or population groups. In systems where rebates and discounts in the distribution chain occur countries should consider regulating them and should make them transparent. The information should be taken into account when reviewing and regulating markups and prices.

Session 8: Pharmaceutical Auditing

Pharmaceuticals must be produced consistently and must be strictly controlled to meet both national and international standards appropriate for their intended use. Strict regulatory requirements must be met including those specified by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA).

Pharmaceutical auditing offer Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) audit services helping our clients to ensure that all relevant regulatory requirements (FDA, NF, MHRA) are met. We provide auditing solutions including pharmaceutical shared audits for all types of pharmaceutical products such as active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), drug products, excipients, over-the-counter products, vaccines and vitamins.

Session 9: Market Access

Market access is the process of ensuring that patients who can benefit from a particular drug have easy and consistent access to that at the right price. Requirement for market access is evidence of clinical effectiveness and cost effectiveness of the product. Market access is no longer about simply gaining marketing authorization for the product.

Market access includes pricing, reimbursement, Health Technology Assessment (HTA) authority recommendations and formulary references on a local and national level. Value based pricing is now a key consideration when marketing a product. This means that the price should reflect the value of the drug.

The right market access strategy can help pharmaceutical companies set their products apart and perhaps realize a preferred position on payer formularies at desired prices and reimbursement levels. Pharmaceutical companies that want to build a smart and robust market access strategy are now beginning to see the value of partnering with service providers with deep domain knowledge, experience in a variety of therapeutic areas and regulatory environments, and an understanding of highly complex and dynamic healthcare systems.

Session 10: Market Intelligence (MI)

Most important things to drive in strategy and success in the marketplace is the role of market intelligence. Samples a broad cross section of firms regarding their level of MI activity; MI data sources and MI accountability. Regarding MI activity and its value to consumer intelligence, two thirds of the companies indicated a dramatic increase in level of activity and nearly 54 per cent said the impact of MI contributes heavily to tactical and strategic decision making. One third said activity was level, while none indicated a reduction. 44 per cent indicated MI contributed somewhat to decision making and only 2 per cent felt MI contributed little to strategy and success in the marketplace. Regarding MI data sources, customers, manufacturing, and R&D are the central source. Regarding MI accountability, about half held marketing accountable for MI.

Scope and Importance:

Medicines account for 20–60% of health spending in low- and middle-income countries, compared with 18% in countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Up to 90% of the population in developing countries purchase medicines through out-of-pocket payments, making medicines the largest family expenditure item after food. As a result, medicines, particularly those with higher costs, may be unaffordable for large sections of the global population and are a major burden on government budgets. The Millennium Development Goals include the target: “In cooperation with pharmaceutical companies, provide access to affordable, essential drugs in developing countries.” Initiatives to stimulate availability and access through manufacturing innovations, procurement mechanisms, or supply chain improvements require management of pricing to have sustainable impact. The past ten years have seen the introduction of several initiatives at both global and regional levels to support countries in managing pharmaceutical prices. Despite some clear successes, many countries are still failing to implement the policy and programme changes needed to improve access to affordable medicines. This guideline was developed to assist national policy-makers and other stakeholders in identifying and implementing policies to manage pharmaceutical prices. Although the feasibility of these policies in countries of all income levels was considered, special consideration was given to implementation needs in low- and middle-income countries, where the pharmaceutical sector may be less regulated. References to low- and middle income countries are therefore intended to highlight specific implementation needs and do not to exclude the appropriateness for high-income settings.
