There are a myriad of regulatory changes in the works and in the wings, from Patented Medicine pricing reviews, new collaborations with HTA reviewers and other regulators, to review and approval process improvements. While both exciting and at times maybe frightening, these changes should ultimately ease our access to innovative medicines. Hear from a key stakeholder in the telecommunications industry (also heavily regulated) about his experience, lessons learned, and how to keep your focus on the right outcomes.
