Patient-based Sales Forecasting

Life Sciences Webinar

In today’s evolving and digital world, data is the new currency and using that data well leads to insight-driven forecasts and long-term objectives. A sales forecast built on a solid understanding of the driving forces and their impact on the ultimate sales number is therefore key in supporting the tactical and strategic decision-making processes.

For a pharmaceutical company, with brands typically characterised by an expensive product development process and a long product lifecycle, this means understanding the specifics of the patients within a therapeutic or disease area as well as the market dynamics and the competitive landscape, and how this ultimately results in a pool of eligible patients, a resulting number of units or packs sold and the final projected sales figure. All of which can be supported by a variety of scenarios and contextual assumptions.
