The Medical Affairs Conference: Medical comes of age

The stage is set: Medical leadership must now drive the era of value-based care

Our reorientation around patient value is fundamentally changing the nature of the medical function. Customers are crying out for science-driven, authentic interaction. Capable leaders must balance face-to-face relationships with managing RWE and making smarter connections across the lifecycle. Patients want to be better informed and better educated: we need to get them there.

The ability for our industry to make this leap depends entirely on whether medical acts decisively and pro-actively. Make no mistake, medical affairs can repair the reputation of pharma while meeting the value needs of an increasingly complex web of stakeholders.

It sounds like a mountain to climb, but together we can get there. We’re pulling together panels of medical leaders to break down the various permutations of what’s possible. Digital transformation and appropriate use of AI is critical, with new tools available to streamline and coordinate customer interaction.

The message is clear: medical, it’s time to step up. Join us at eyeforpharma Philadelphia to discover how.

Medical Affairs leaders include:

Carefully selected to cover every aspect of your medical affairs strategy.
