Summary

Table of Contents




There’s a revolution happening...and it’s going to change the way pharma thinks.

As the accountable care movement gains traction in the United States and physicians eye a possible $1 trillion in saved healthcare costs, ACOs are emerging quickly. There is no question that knitting together improved quality of care, real world data and quality measures will result in lower healthcare expenditures. But how will that affect pharma?

The answer lies in being a first-mover, understanding what it takes to be a successful ACO and most of all, adjusting traditional marketing and development practices in response. To be agile in the face of revolution, pharma must first understand the complete scope of the change now underway.
