Up-to-the-minute and based on the most current research and expert interviews, Trends and Innovations in Drug Pricing is an open window to the future of drug pricing.

Worldwide, the trend towards payers determining price has been firmly entrenched for years. Yet in the US, more aggressive approaches to pricing through exclusive deals that swap discounts for patient access are only now gaining traction.

And as payers focus is on containing costs and ensuring value for money, what is the takeaway message for pharma?
