CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharmaceutical companies are turning to their medical affairs function

to enhance interactions with critical payer groups such as Accountable Care Organizations and Integrated Delivery Networks.

and outcomes-oriented information that can influence payer decisions. But as a relative newcomer to the payer world, medical affairs leaders face many challenges in ensuring effective payer interactions, including identifying and targeting key payers, presenting critical data and deploying field resources to support meetings.
