Value-Based Purchasing and Comparative Effectiveness: Why the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, and Medical-Surgical Device Industries Should Embrace the Coming Market Evolution

For years, health economics has assisted healthcare stakeholders in making informed evaluations of treatment alternatives. Now, the advent of value-based purchasing (VBP) and comparative effectiveness research (CER) are leading to new methods for identifying products with the highest "value"—those that ideally deliver both overall cost reductions and improved patient health. These trends will increasingly impact the way healthcare products are marketed and sold.

This paper examines the march to VBP and CER evaluations, and makes specific recommendations to manufacturers and brand teams regarding how combining clinical and economic data is essential to the successful marketing of drugs and devices.

What does going "beyond the pill" actually mean? At MM&M's recent inaugural spring conference, audience members heard from real-world companies that are managing the organizational, technological, and promotional challenges inherent in this transition, such as partnering with health neophytes, harnessing technologies that allow deeper engagement with patients, and adopting a new commercial mindset to serve, not sell.
