Market Dynamics Driving the Dialogue

“There has been notable growth in health system-owned specialty pharmacies in the last four years, with 70% of IDNs reporting having a specialty pharmacy in 2019, up from 39% in 2016. HIRC estimates that up to 85% of IDNs could have their own specialty pharmacy by 2022.”

— Health Industries Research Companies, 2019

“The U.S. integrated delivery network market is expected to reach USD 2137.1 billion by 2027 registering a CAGR of 10.1%”

— Grand View Research, Inc., June 2020

“Life sciences organizations now recognize integrated delivery networks (IDNs) as one of their key customers. There are a few factors at play here: More than half of the volume in many therapy areas flows through IDNs and physicians’ decision-making autonomy continues to decline in the face of industry consolidation and system-level management strategies. And while a clear case for a robust key account strategy existed long before COVID-19, the pandemic has solidified the need to strategically partner with these institutions.”
