ConvergeHEALTH Miner™ Access Suite

Hone your market access and reimbursement strategy

Pharmaceutical pricing has become increasingly complex, and state regulations often further complicate this landscape. How can companies improve market access and reimbursement strategies for greater transparency—and improved patient outcomes? Through the data science–driven, integrated platform of ConvergeHEALTH Miner™ Access.

The importance of linking strategy and operations

You know the saying, “You only get one chance to make a first impression”? Well, here is a similar one for pharmaceutical manufacturers: “You only get one chance to set a product’s launch price.”

Formulating an effective pricing strategy is critical to help ensure that a new product is accessible to patients and fulfills business objectives. The process is complex; the manufacturer must set both list and contract prices while being thoughtful about business objectives and competitive market dynamics.

In addition, a new environment is emerging that may upend pharmaceutical product pricing and contracting, requiring a new generation of contract life cycle management solutions. The driving forces include the following:

  • Shifting company portfolios
  • Drugs with multiple indications
  • Drug approval process acceleration
  • The introduction of cell and gene therapies
  • An increasing push to manage product pricing and contracting globally

The time has come to make the process, technology, and operating model changes needed to realize the business benefits of effectively orchestrating the end-to-end pricing and contracting life cycle. Learn how integrating strategy and operations, with the help of a modernized-integrated pricing and management solution, can help you achieve product pricing and contracting success.
