It focuses on issues that evolve with the changes in the health care environment and pharmaceutical industry. NPC’s current research examines the most pressing issues related to real-world evidence, the optimal role and value of pharmaceuticals in emerging payment and delivery models, patient access to care and medicines, and biopharmaceutical and health system innovation.
“Our new partnership with AJMC® and Pharmacy Times® will strengthen NPC’s efforts to explore, demonstrate and communicate the role and value of innovative biopharmaceuticals to achieve better patient health,” said Robert W.
