The faculty will present and discuss the importance of building clinical and payer value before, during, and after launch to optimize market success. Scheduled speakers include industry experts in development and regulatory, commercialization, and market access. The webinar will help attendees understand how to best prepare and execute commercialization of value-added medicines, especially 505(b)(2) products.
“We are very excited to launch this series of webinars to help companies and life science professionals better understand the commercialization differences between value-added products and innovator products,” said Stephen Casey co-founder of The 505(b)(2) Platform and co-owner of Omni-HC, “To often companies commercialize a 505(b)(2) product as if it is an innovator product, when in actuality successful 505(b)(2) product commercialization requires a customized targeted approach to overcome significant market forces that sideline and derail value-added products.”
