Impact of COVID-19 on the Commercial Models of Pharmaceutical Companies in the US

 

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger--but recognize the opportunity.” 

John F Kennedy

The US pharmaceutical industry, which is racing to develop a vaccine to beat the novel coronavirus, is facing never-before-seen challenges. The hurdles include public policy mandates (e.g., shelter-in-place orders and closing of non-essential businesses) and sweeping restrictions placed on industry representatives from entering offices and hospitals to meet healthcare professionals (HCPs).

These intricacies arise from various factors, like the heavy dependence on sales reps, mechanics and scale of the products being sold (sometimes complete health solutions), diversity of the stakeholder entities involved (from market influencers to centralized purchasing teams), and back and front-end supply chain fallouts. Here are some examples.

Role of AI in Patient Adherence

The Role AI Is Playing In Healthcare Patient Adherence

As per a systemic review1 published in Annals of Internal Medicine, assessing the impact of interventions to improve adherence, it was found that about half the medications prescribed for chronic diseases are not consumed as directed by the physician, and around 20-30% of prescriptions are never fulfilled. This non-adherence results in over 125,000 deaths every year as well as increased emergency department visits and hospitalizations, which costs the American healthcare system to the tune of $100 to $300 billion1.
