However, for a successful market access, any company needs to have a strategy to meet the needs of the payers as well as the regulators.

A winning market access strategy is needed for both clinical and commercial success, as the product must provide benefits to patients, and it must also provide a return on investment for the companies developing the drugs.

To achieve this, companies need to embrace market access strategy as an aim from the beginning, which requires understanding the needs of patients, focusing on payer perspectives, and providing pragmatic solutions that work in the real world.
