The pharma industry’s focus is shifting from the transactional approach to a transformational approach by partnering with patients for clinical trial development and beyond. Pharma is doing this to be able to always reflect real-world patient experiences accurately or address what is most important to a patient. This is important because today’s patients have access to more scientific information, are better informed about their conditions, and are more vocal about their desire for inclusion in all aspects of the life cycle of a medicine. So, pharma has a unique opportunity to help define what success in this context looks like, and medical affairs is a vital additional partner in this equation, bridging the gap between pharma and patients.
