CHAPEL HILL, N.C., May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Medical Affairs function plays a critical role in meeting current challenges within the health care sector. Indeed, most healthcare professionals agree that the Medical Affairs function takes on an enormous role in guiding the sector's ongoing transition from simply drug marketing, to dealing with a wide range of stakeholders who influence market access. The Medical Affairs Consortium at Best Practices, LLC is dedicated to providing benchmarking and best practices across critical Medical Affairs functions including, but not limited to: Medical Information / Communication, Scientific / Medical Liaisons, Thought Leader Services, Health Outcomes & Data Management and Medical Education.

The Medical Affairs Consortium brings Medical Affairs executives together to focus on learning and sharing best practices regarding their key issues. Consortium members participate in a three-part study that they help in the creation of the theme. Following the completion of this study, members get three-part customized analysis that contains a specific report comparing the member companies to the benchmark class. In addition, we host three virtual roundtables that allow members to share, question, listen, seek ideas from peers and discuss challenges that confront them after each study part. Specifically, benefits include:

  • Participation in 3-part research study series on Medical Affairs Excellence
  • Access to the Best Practices Database and its wealth of Medical Affairs content
  • Virtual briefings and roundtables that include Medical Affairs executives from leading companies
  • 3 report deliverables created from the consortium study and shared with members throughout the year
  • Customized gap analysis within each report
  • Access to Best Practices' research advisors

Best Practices, LLC is hosting its third 2013-2014 Medical Affairs Roundtable on Thursday, June 5 to discuss how to create effective strategies in thought leader management. Companies participating in the third roundtable include: Amgen, Astellas, Astra Zeneca, Baxter, Biogen Idec, Eli Lilly, Genentech, Merck, Novartis, Pfizer, ProStrakan, Sanofi, Upsher-Smith and Teva. Our third roundtable will be the end of the first Medical Affairs Consortium and the second consortium will kick off in early July.
