Traditionally a support role, Medical Affairs is now using their extensive scientific expertise to inform short- and long-term planning strategies across the product development lifecycle. From understanding product attributes and current standards of care to competitive landscape and customer insights, Medical Affairs is uniquely positioned to steer scientific conversations around critical issues and potential gaps that may impact commercialization down the road. Medical Affairs acts as a bridge between research and development (R&D) and commercial. This collaboration with R&D and commercialization disciplines starts as early as study protocol development. This allows Medical Affairs to drive a scientific scenario that defines clinical endpoints and improves patient recruitment efforts. As Medical Affairs continues to adapt and gain competencies in the digital arena, they are also redefining launch excellence in terms of adaptability, proactive strategic involvement, and technology-savvy collaboration. The question that exists is what more can Medical Affairs do to aid launch excellence and how these roles will change in the coming years.
