Market Access Manager – Espoo, Finland

 

A key challenge for the (bio)pharmaceutical industry is to get the healthcare decision makers to support access and funding of innovative, but often premium priced medicines. In this context the new Market Access Manager will need to understand, develop and communicate strong value and HEOR messages to both national and local (hospital-based) decision makers.

The Market Access Department’s goal is a timely (patient) access for all BMS medicines. The department reports into the local commercial organization and works in close collaboration with the local medical and marketing teams and the Nordic HEOR organization. The work is cross-functional and often project-based.

The Market Access Manager will be responsible e.g. for the national reimbursement processes for applicable BMS products (dossier creation for the Pharmaceuticals Pricing Board). In the hospital market, this person will be responsible for the creation of compelling value messages (both clinical and economic) that suit the Finnish environment. A certain amount of direct customer interaction may be required.

(Disclaimer: The responsibilities listed above are only a summary and other responsibilities will be requirements as assigned)

Key Accountabilities:

More specifically, the Market Access Manager will:

  • Identify and drive overall access potential for key medicines in close collaboration with local Market Access, the Nordic HEOR team, and when relevant the WW-team
  • Create and/or implement access, health economic and evidence strategy
  • Lead the national reimbursement process and create the P/R dossiers for the Pharmaceuticals Pricing Board, with the support of relevant functions (medical, regulatory, commercial, Nordic HEOR)

  • Lead varying projects simultaneously across different therapeutic areas in conjunction with Market Access Lead (MAL)
  • When needed support local teams with access and possibly HEOR expertise (e.g. BI-models, C/E analysis, cost-of-illness), if within own capabilities
  • Support access discussions at the hospital level with value demonstration working in close collaboration with the other Market Access Managers
  • Meet hospital-based customers with value messaging where appropriate

All above must be conducted in full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and codes and all BMS policies and ethical standards.
