The introduction of Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy guidelines, which provide a format for the submission of dossiers by pharmaceutical manufacturers to pharmacy and therapeutics committee, has changed the market dynamics of the pharmaceutical industry. These guidelines, though voluntary, change the focus from efficacy, safety and acquisition cost to that of demonstrating a product’s overall value. Consequently, product managers now must use patient reported outcomes and pharmacoeconomic data to establish the overall value of their products.This trend has important implications to the bottom line of pharmaceutical companies. Pharmacoeconomic data can help to quantify the economic impact of new pharmacological treatments on overall treatment costs.

The Institute for International Research is pleased to bring you the 2nd Annual Pharmaceutical Outcomes Research conference. Our 2nd annual event offers product managers and health economic professionals solutions to develop AMCP compliant dossiers and pharmacoeconomic data analysis techniques that establish value proposition for their products.By establishing a value proposition for new pharmacological treatments you increase opportunity for access to formulary placement and greater revenues. The mission of this conference is to help pharmaceutical companies achieve greater return-on-investment from their outcomes research efforts and offers solutions to increase utilization for a drug by demonstrating the product’s value in terms of cost and quality of life.
