The rise of the payer-led health economy is presenting significant challenges for pharmaceutical companies.
Whilst the majority have rationalised by cutting the field sales force and creating Key Account Management teams, the inexorable shift from prescriber to payer and the growing fragmentation and regionalisation of decision making is presenting new challenges.
As governments globally announce cuts in public health funding and ever tighter controls over drug pricing, organisations need to address a raft of challenges from the rise of generics to the implications of parallel imports.
How can Azzurri help?
Consolidate global networks - Multi-national organisations headquartered in the UK can consolidate all global networking through one organisation responsible for coordinating with multiple international carriers. One invoice streamlines payment processes, whilst users have one central point for 24x7 support calls. The centralised route also enables an organisation to impose control over the acquisition of network infrastructure driving up overall resilience. Find out more »

Azzurri’s support has been as close to perfect as possible. It runs extremely smoothly, demonstrated by the fact I can’t remember last time I had to report a fault.
