5 Hurdles to Patient Support Program Success and How to Overcome Them


It’s been reported that, despite more than $5 billion in patient support investments each year, less than 3-8% of patients actually use the services manufacturers work so hard to provide. Archbow's manufacturer clients often ask us to identify common barriers to program success and to explore ways to better design patient support programs that actually drive product access.


My colleague, DeWayne Manning, and I recently hosted a webinar exploring the common barriers to patient support program success and ways that manufacturers might better design programs to eliminate those barriers in the name of improved patient access.


In the webinar, DeWayne and I addressed the following, and provided proven, real-world solutions for each:

  • Starting Patient Support Design at the Very Beginning of the Patient Journey

  • Involving and Aligning Internal Stakeholders

  • Designing the Right Patient Support Offering

  • Selecting the Right HUB Model

  • Delivering on Program Expectations
