Medical Affairs teams are essential players in a successful launch, in market performance, and in improving patient lives. They translate clinical and scientific data to the medical community and bring valuable insights from the practice setting and key opinion leaders back into the company. On top of this, Medical Affairs must operate required processes compliantly within the business both pre-approval and post-approval. In spite of this, Medical Affairs faces the well-known challenge of stakeholders understanding what they do, and their measurable contribution to the success of a company and its patients' performance, effectiveness and demonstrating strategic value.
We are strong believers in the strategic value of a thoughtfully designed, managed and deployed Medical Affairs function including the MSL field team.
Our approach centers on developing a fit-for-purpose functional strategy and integrated medical affairs plan with a clear eye on patient success. We rely on our clients’ mastery of the science, and they rely on our mastery of the processes, systems and methods for conducting effective bi-directional exchange of fair, balanced and unbiased data and information with the medical community. Finally, we work with Medical Affairs leaders and their stakeholders to establish clear performance expectations focused on outcomes that ultimately focus on improving patient success.

Why outsource business processes? Often, organizations are juggling processes with significant financial/other impact, insufficient staffing support, or lower priority work that will enable focus on higher priorities with delegation. Utilizing BPO can reduce financial or other risks, bring peace of mind that processes are running consistently and efficiently, and can allow staff to focus on activities with greater value-add. SVA has a dedicated BPO team committed to emerging life science process administration and improvement. Our process experts include project managers, business analysts, data analysts, and process operators, all of which can create, improve, document and run processes.
