Event Details

In order to succeed, biotech, drug, and device companies must publish their results in peer-reviewed journals in an effort to add value to promote and commercialize their technologies. The drivers of this exercise include reimbursement, credibility, commercialization and valuations. If you’re not publishing, you’re missing out on valuable opportunities to improve the chances for your company to succeed.

In this interactive program, you will learn the how, why and when of a successful publication strategy. Experts in the field will be joined by professionals who have effectively implemented the process. You will learn from their successes and failures.

Topics to be covered:

  • When, where and what to publish
  • Timing of publications throughout the product development cycle
  • Article types to consider, and why; look at both home runs and base hits
  • How peer-reviewed publications support reimbursement strategy
  • Developing a roadmap to maximize publication objectives
  • PR and your publication program

The program will include case examples and a sample roadmap for success.
