The ninth module of the 10-part Medical Affairs Product Launch Series, this module is an analysis of key investigator-initiated trial (IIT) benchmarks, including budgetary and staffing data along with proposal submission and approval rates. It also examines teams’ IIT resource and activity levels during the product lifecycle and includes a detailed profile of budget, staffing and proposal submission timelines for a team supporting a product.

In developing this module, Cutting Edge Information’s analysts collected surveys from and consulted with a series of medical affairs leaders at several top pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies.

REPORT FEATURES:

Compare team investigator-initiated trial budgets and staffing levels to determine when to increase resource levels during the product lifecycle: Market size, the size of a product’s portfolio and IIT strategy all help to determine a team’s IIT budget. Research finds that although staffing levels remain fairly consistent throughout the product lifecycle, the number of full-time employees (FTEs) varies among IIT teams. The research and detailed profile in Facilitating Investigator-Sponsored Trials help teams determine the budget and staffing requirements needed to best support your company’s product launches.

REASONS TO BUY:

Benchmark IIT proposal submissions throughout the product lifecycle to prepare IIT teams for activity level increases: The lifecycle stage at which teams receive the most IIT proposal submissions, activity levels adjust accordingly. This module discusses the change in workload throughout the product lifecycle and how that corresponds to activity levels and the percentage of proposals that get approved. Use the research in Facilitating InvestigatorSponsored Trials to adjust resources to meet workload demands.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

Any executives and team leads involved in investigator-initiated or -sponsored trials, research or studies. Additionally, any parties responsible for IIT resourcing will benefit from key metrics, including the percentage of investigator-initiated trial budget dedicated at the beginning of each year, sources of IIT funding, percentage of budget spent on external spending and IIT internal management, average funding per IIT and IIT funding compared to the number of approvals.

CHAPTER EXAMPLE:

Although IITs are a key component of most product strategies, teams adhere to different timelines in managing them. Generally, teams prefer to approve and fund trial proposals after a product reaches the registration stage. However, some strategies include relying on IITs for useful data collection prior to launch. The type of product that a team supports may also influence how early or late in the lifecycle the team begins to dedicate time and resources to IIT activities.
