Our value story

Download our research briefing to learn more about the top 10 issues that warrant further research, helping to shape our 2019 research agenda.


Life sciences executives are faced with a difficult challenge—they have to clearly articulate product value in ways that resonate with different customers. Oftentimes, they are operating at the intersection of clinical research and customer engagement, and are working on competing timelines and value frameworks.

We spoke with 75 medical leaders across pharmaceutical, medical device, and diagnostic firms to discuss their most pressing issues—and over 50 themes and priorities surfaced.

“One of the things I’ve always admired about Advisory Board is the story behind the data. You understand it, but you’re not part of it. That kind of stuff speaks to health care professionals. The advantage I see for Advisory Board is that you’re also not trying to do medical affairs. You are trying to make medical affairs better.”

—VP, Medical Affairs, large pharmaceutical firm

Each year, our research experts are invited to speak at industry conferences across the country. At EyeForPharma19, we delivered a standing-room only presentation, “How Payers and IDNs Think About Value and the Data They Trust to Make Decisions.”

This presentation was so popular, we received multiple requests to share the slides. Download the presentation to get a glimpse into the kind of research our team produces. Fill out the form above if you’re interested in connecting with our experts and hearing more about our research.
