First-time drug launchers are expected to account for more than half of the blockbuster therapies launched over the next 5 years. Surprisingly, 67% of first product launches fail to reach pre-launch forecasts.1 So, how do you plan for optimal success?

At the core of designing and executing a successful commercial launch strategy is having the right data and insights to effectively plan, execute, and adapt quickly to the market. Medidata Acorn AI Commercial Data Solutions has supported 40% of the first-time drug launches in the US so far in 2021. This webinar will address the six critical factors to consider for a successful commercial launch strategy:

  • Invest in commercial preparation earlier to increase the probability of success
  • Apply a cross functional strategy to create your commercial model
  • Identify KPIs to track performance and guide activities
  • Build a launch roadmap based on the best data and insights
  • Track, analyze and adapt performance with the right technology
  • Choose the right partners for data and analytics
