This webinar will define the priority checklist for executing a successful strategy and operational plan for commercializing molecular diagnostics. It will examine the process of bringing a product to market by highlighting all the key features required in today’s evolving healthcare environment. Financial resources needed to execute the project plan will be measured in the current climate. Participants will get an overview of key requirements for advancing molecular diagnostics through product development, including acquiring knowledge of strategy, regulatory, reimbursement, health economic, managing key opinion leaders and patient advocacy considerations.

The course is based on: Commercializing Novel IVDs: A Comprehensive Manual for Success, written by the presenter, Harry Glorikian. This unique manual provides an overview of the major components to IVD development, from product conception through commercialization, and important considerations about individual aspects of the process.
