2019 Challenges and Opportunities in the Combination Products Market:

2019 Challenges and Opportunities in the Combination Products Market:

Ensuring that combination products are effectively managed throughout their development, implementation, launch and post-market surveillance is critical to their long-term success in the market.

However, the interaction between medical device manufacturers and pharma companies arguably still has considerable room for improvement and both face various challenges throughout the product lifecycle. In order to facilitate an efficient development process and launch combination products successfully, the two partners must be fully aligned throughout the product lifecycle.

Ahead of the 2019 Combination Products Forum, Pharma IQ surveyed the industry experts to understand what are the biggest challenges faced by them at each stage of the lifecycle management as well as what’s stopping them from implementing new solutions.
