PAREXEL Expands Market Access and Clinical Evidence Services

Nov. 10, 2015

PAREXEL International Corporation announced expanded evidence-based services for biopharmaceutical products. PAREXEL Access focuses on clinical research and operations, market access consulting, medical communications, and pharmacovigilance to help companies identify, evaluate, generate and communicate the evidence of product value needed to successfully position a drug for market access and to support the product throughout its lifecycle.

“No longer is demonstrating safety and efficacy enough to launch a product successfully. The pressures to control the cost of healthcare coupled with the development of payer oversight organizations mean drug developers must demonstrate clear value to add a product to the treatment landscape,” said Joshua Schultz, Corporate Vice President and Worldwide Head of PAREXEL Access, PAREXEL.

According to the company, PAREXEL Access combines the expertise of HERON Commercialization, QSI’s pharmacovigilance, PAREXEL Medical Communications, and PAREXEL Peri-/Post-approval services to offer a complete range of fully-integrated services to help clients position their products for market access and ongoing commercial success, including:

· Evidence Identification and Evaluation: Aligning evidence generation and economic evaluation with pricing, reimbursement and market access strategy to enable our clients to make data-driven decisions to support reimbursement.

· Evidence Generation: Providing services to clients to generate evidence of a product’s value through a range of global study types, including interventional trials, observational research, managed access programs, real-world evidence studies and drug safety programs.

· Communication: Developing the best way to integrate complex scientific and economic data into insightful communications for key audiences, including payers, providers, patients, and policy makers.
