Date:5/24/2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Regulatory and marketplace changes have pushed Medical Affairs to the forefront of many organizations' priority list.

Forward-thinking companies across the biopharmaceutical and medical device sectors understand a strong Medical Affairs function is essential to meeting current challenges in clinical development, market education, and regulatory compliance. These areas must operate effectively to create a vital bridge between an organization and one of the most critical stakeholders in the healthcare marketplace: physicians.

Appropriate spending and staffing across these activities is one of the challenges facing the Medical Affairs function as it attempts to balance its growing role across the organization.
