RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC--(Marketwired - July 28, 2016) - The vast majority -- 83% -- of US pharma key account management (KAM) teams label hospital systems and private payers as key accounts, according to a new published by pharmaceutical intelligence provider Cutting Edge Information.
Another 67% of US KAM teams incorporate government payers on a local, regional and national level basis, along with physician networks and large group practices, in their target segments. A smaller percentage (17%) also reach out to other account types, such as pharmacies.
According to the Cutting Edge Information study, Pharmaceutical Key Account Management: Forging a Unified Relationship with External Stakeholders
, every European general KAM team includes hospital systems in its key accounts. However, compared to the US teams, these KAM teams' key accounts are more likely to include regional and local-level government payers (80%) than private payers at any level (60%). The surveyed teams that operate in the Middle East or Africa only reach out to regional and local-level government payers.
"General KAM groups in the US favor private payer accounts," said Adam Bianchi, senior director of research at Cutting Edge Information. "On the other hand, ex-US teams favor government payer accounts. The location of these KAM groups also plays a role in these strategic choices."
