payers, Market access,
A review of the literature was conducted to determine whether there is an appropriate definition for market access. The original perception was that it relates to securing market authorization, as well as enabling prescribing of the product. A working definition for pharmaceutical market access was proposed as “a process of enabling patient access to pharmaceutical products, not only through gaining regulatory approval, but also through gaining an acceptable optimal price and reimbursement status to manufacturers and payers.” The objective of this survey was to determine how appropriate the proposed definition is by comparing it to definitions proposed by differing professionals within the healthcare industry.
