Case Study

Creating a robust EU launch strategy for an asset being developed in multiple indications

Client: Global launch team from a leading pharma company

The challenge

To review the existing Global launch strategy in the context of recent EU payor research to generate strategic options for the EU launch, each with an associated plan of action.

Our approach

The approach

1. Uptake Strategies conducted interviews with members of the Global cross-functional launch team and key EU markets to identify functional perspectives and critical issues for the EU launch

2. Generated potential regulatory filing and reimbursement strategy scenarios and the pros and cons for each

3. Facilitated a Global and EU cross-functional workshop with 40 participants to:

  • align on the key considerations for each scenario and scenarios to discount
  • determine key decision gates and outstanding data requirements for remaining scenarios and review and refine planned activities by function for these

4. Co-ordinate alignment on assumptions for the commercial evaluation       modelling of each remaining scenario

5. Generate an executive leadership presentation detailing progress and strategic options and investment required for a successful EU launch

The outcome
