Pharmaceutical Data Dissemination Policies Vary Around the World but Off-Label Discussions Typically Only Occur Reactively, New Study Finds

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With the shift toward evidence-based medicine and value-based pricing in the marketplace, pharmaceutical companies are turning to their Medical Affairs function to create effective guidelines for the dissemination of critical product information to external stakeholders.

And in today's regulatory environment these guidelines are a vital part of ensuring compliance and consistency around on-label and off-label data discussions by global field medical teams.

To help inform Medical Affairs leaders on this important topic, research and consulting leader Best Practices, LLC conducted benchmarking research to provide a high-level understanding of current organizational policies around data dissemination by field medical staff in North America, Europe, APAC and Emerging Markets. The research found that while no company in the study proactively provides off-label data, 67 percent of companies in United States and 50 percent in Europe reactively provide off-label information.

The report, "Determining Best Practices for Data Dissemination Policies for Global Field Medical Teams," contains reliable industry metrics that will help Medical Affairs leaders better understand how on-label and off-label data discussions are approached by field medical teams at leading biopharmaceutical companies in four major regions across the world.

Topics addressed in this study include:

  • Field Medical Data Disseminations
  • Off-Label Proactive Data Discussions
  • Off-Label Data Discussion Restrictions
  • Data Dissemination
  • Data Dissemination Follow-Up

Best Practices, LLC engaged 18 Medical Affairs leaders at 13 biopharmaceutical companies for this research study.
