Utilizing a hands-on, hypothetical project design challenge, you will be asked to respond to experienced perspectives on whether, why, and how to capture meaningful patient engagement at stages of development and review. How do patients describe their unmet medical needs? Which molecules does industry bring forward? What are the benefits and risks to patient organizations of placing their constituencies at the center of a commercial endeavor? What emerging quantitative methods can be used to represent patient perspectives? After approval, how can this information be conveyed to payers and providers? Is today's hard work of patient engagement set to make a difference in the marketplace and – above all – patients' lives? Join us to test and build this new patient-centered enterprise.
