CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout the healthcare industry, compliance guidelines for pharma's interactions with external professional and trade relations (PTR) groups are tightening as increased regulations intensify scrutiny and budget constraints limit resources. As a result, the pace of activity cycles are slowing and more pressure is being placed on optimizing structure and operations.
