Episode 012: Medical Affairs from Zero
Show Notes

Imagine two products that are very similar. One became one of the most successful launches the organization ever had; the other one was a flop. The main difference between the two? Medical Affairs.

There was a time - not all that long ago - when the Medical Affairs function did not exist. Today, the Medical Affairs organization is critical to a successful product launch, providing foresight into understanding who all of the stakeholders are and all of their evidentiary needs: getting the right evidence at the right time, communicated in the right way, to the right audience.

Suma Ramadas, Managing Director in the Medical Practice Area at Syneos Health Consulting, discusses with host Jeff Stewart the inception of what we know today as Medical Affairs, its evolution to current state - and what needs to happen now in order for Medical Affairs to transform into the powerhouse function of tomorrow.
