Simon-Kucher & Partners’ Life Sciences European Strategy Forum 2017

Monetizing Medicines in a New Era

Join us for Simon-Kucher & Partners’ Life Sciences European Strategy Forum in Zurich, where experts from Simon-Kucher & Partners and industry will present perspectives and discuss practical solutions for monetizing medicines in a new era.

Despite a wealth of innovations, monetizing pharmaceutical products has never been more challenging. Internally, companies must select the right assets in early stage clinical development and plan ahead to extract value for those assets as well as ensure the organization can effectively deal with changing payer requirements. Moreover, from a payer side companies are facing limited budgets, changing HTA requirements and an increasing number of gatekeepers.
