Leveraging Environmental Assessment Data

An important step in integrating the patient perspective into the drug development continuum is to understand the groups that represent these patients and how to appropriately and meaningfully engage with them. Industry partners face multiple challenges in understanding their environmental landscape from too many potential partners with varying objectives, to too few players in the space.
