Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Webinar covers REMS provision and Impact on Pharmaceutical Marketers.

New powers were legislated to the FDA with the REMS provision (Risk & Evaluation Mitigation Strategies). Much more than just another regulatory entity, the FDA & REMS become literally & figuratively, a partner on the product management team. All new approved drugs will be subject to varying degrees of requirements from a minimal post marketing/Phase IV study over timelines to provisions dealing with how and to whom the drug is provided and delivered. Pharmaceutical Marketers will now have to be more specific in projecting patient populations; indeed, these market segments will be smaller and more targeted than previous blockbuster markets.

The role of the sales rep will change dramatically from a "pill pusher" (as one former major pharma CEO characterized the industry) to an advocate advising the doctor on safety and proper usage. A key issue will be how to incentives and compensate a rep who does not aim to have the doctor use more of the drug but to use it more effectively and most likely, lower sales.
