Shaunna Kobilis, National Director, Market Access, Adaptive Biotechnologies

Recorded on April 29, 2021

In the increasingly competitive diagnostic marketplace, products are often brought to payers prematurely in order to reach the market more quickly. When research is less substantial, however, damaged payer perception can extend to the larger diagnostic industry. This case study explores how one company successfully balanced the need for rigorous research with the urgency of connecting with payers early in the development process, crafting a cohesive reimbursement strategy.
