Pharma Competitive Intelligence: Delivering Actionable Insights for Decision Making


Date: Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Time: 10am EDT (NA) / 3pm BST (UK) / 4pm CEST (EU-Central)

Duration: 60 minutes

Featured Speakers:

  • Jamie Munro, Global Practice Leader, Portfolio and Licensing, Clarivate Analytics
  • Karthik Subramanian, Senior Product Strategy Manager, Clarivate Analytics

Pharma companies are constantly challenged to build pipelines with innovative drugs that have high potential for approval and reimbursement. In order to build an effective portfolio, it is essential to choose the most valuable projects, prioritize appropriately and then plan resources for implementation. To add to this, drug discovery and development is a tremendously competitive field. In an increasing number of countries, a company must be first or best in class to gain market access. Generating "me too" compounds is no longer a strategic option for companies.

Competitive intelligence (CI) has historically been used as a means to evaluate the landscape and leverage it for decision making. Now, more than ever, it is critical to continually evaluate the CI function within companies to ensure it is delivering actionable insights to help executives make the right decisions.

During this webinar, we will provide an insight into current Pharma CI, including trends and best practices, and discuss topics like:

  • State of the nation: feedback/benchmarks on pharmaceutical CI
  • Design of clinical trial protocols to address the special needs of the drug being studied
  • Study design features that reduce placebo effects
  • Current practice: typical CI offerings and challenges
  • Best practice
  • Future outlook

Keywords: Drug Development, Competitive Intelligence, Pharmaceutical Industry
