The New Sales Model: Virtual Engagement in the Time of COVID-19 August 10th, 2020 Produced in conjunction with Drug Channels. Healthcare in the U.S. is rife with process inefficiencies and structural barriers that can prevent individuals from receiving necessary therapeutic care.

TC Script to the Rescue

The New Sales Model: Virtual Engagement in the Time of COVID-19 August 10th, 2020 The global pandemic has impacted nearly every facet of life for all of us and has dramatically changed healthcare systems.

Rare Disease: Stopping at Nothing

The New Sales Model: Virtual Engagement in the Time of COVID-19 August 10th, 2020 2020 was a year in which the world as we know it stopped.

That is especially true for those in the pharmaceutical industry, as many field representatives stopped traveling and visiting physician offices. However, for TrialCard’s Virtual Engagement team working in rare diseases, not a single thing changed. We were in a unique situation in which our workdays continued as usual [...]

No Rare Disease Patient Goes Forgotten

The New Sales Model: Virtual Engagement in the Time of COVID-19 August 10th, 2020 When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, my first thought was, “The health and safety of thousands, maybe millions will be impacted. This will affect EVERYONE.” My second thought was, “How will this impact our rare disease patients?” In the last year, we have been inundated by the news surrounding the coronavirus and how the healthcare industry is being impacted. Through it all, it has been inspiring to see healthcare workers continue to pay attention to rare disease [...]

CMS Releases Final Rule Impacting Co-Pay Assistance Programs and Best Price

The New Sales Model: Virtual Engagement in the Time of COVID-19 August 10th, 2020 The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a final rule on December 21, 2020, requiring pharmaceutical manufacturers to ensure the benefit of co-pay assistance programs goes only to patients in order to maintain the exclusion from best price reporting.

New Payer Policies Introduce Co-Pay Accumulators to Medical Benefit Products: Implications for Manufacturer Programs

TC Script: Navigating Supply Chain During COVID-19

The New Sales Model: Virtual Engagement in the Time of COVID-19 August 10th, 2020 The pharmaceutical supply chain has never experienced a year like 2020. Each day seems to present a new set of challenges. During January and February, the concern was seemingly simple, and in retrospect, a bit naïve. Back then, our only concern was how to handle supply chain slowdowns from major manufacturing centers located in Asia, Western Europe, and the Middle East. Today, our challenges are much more complex, and it looks like the future is still [...]
