Drug Makers Discuss New Ways to Trim Health Care Costs at ZS Associates and eyeforpharma Forum
Date:3/17/2010

A few leading pharmaceutical companies have already taken steps down this path by implementing new account management strategies that focus on "key" accounts. So far, however, most companies have implemented key account management (KAM) narrowly, using it to improve processes, coordination or stakeholder management in one or two lines of business.

"This watered down version of KAM has generated disappointing results," Bernewitz said.
