Medical Affairs has originally emerged as a reaction because of increasing pressure from regulators to separate medical and commercial functions. Companies have been experiencing increasing internal demand to focus on generation and development of new products rather than managing products after FDA approval. Thus medical affairs has evolved into a separate medical organization that often sits within development organizations but primarily works on post approval activities and has both the scientific and clinical expertise to support commercial products.

The current competitive environment demands tactful management of most respected and skilled physicians by the healthcare organisations. Hence each healthcare organisation is making an ardent effort to ensure that no stone remains untouched. The fact of matter is not only true for the health care industry, but also for pharmaceutical companies. It is indeed a challenging task for the pharma companies too who are looking for key opinion leaders (KOLs) to assist them in exploring, launching, and promoting new drugs. KOL’s provide important information on disease condition and patient medication regimen.

Developing a new medicine is a sophisticated and complex task which initially begins with the understanding of disease or condition as thoroughly as possible. At first, the researchers conduct studies in cells, tissues and animal models to determine whether the disease or condition can be influenced by new molecule. After that clinical trials establishes new molecule (IND) as a drug and also provide information that how drug acts on underlying diseases.

Clinically validated data is a valuable asset to pharmaceutical organization. Data from the clinical trials are vital to the whole clinical development procedure. Value of any drug cannot be properly noticed until the clinical data is systematically organised, simply accessible and cleaned. Data Validation may be defined as the way of calculating a system or section in between or at the end of the development process to find whether it complete particular requirements. Validation signifies that the system is functioning and checks that the software complies with the needs which were mentioned at the starting of the software development cycle.

The data management of a clinical trial is a crucial step for the firms that are undergoing research studies in the hospitals. Maintaining the quality and integrity of clinical data is yet another daring task to perform. Many of recent studies showed numerous troubles with data management system (DMS) in clinical trials performed at academic organizations. No troubles either minor or major should be avoided as they may cause imbalance of true data and its analysis or conclusions. Finding solutions to these problems will definitely lead to confirmation of data accuracy and its analysis.

In present state of affairs, clinical research is considered as one of the promising domains for any health care organization. Clinical research studies leads to the generation of data whose management is not an easy task to perform by any biopharmaceutical organization. Clinical Data Management System (CDM) is leading clinical development industry into a new innings of transformation. It also now faces an elevating attention from the safety and regulatory sectors, which have never been seen earlier.

Clinical data management comprises distinct process encompassing development and execution that is used in order to save, deliver and enhance the data/information in clinical research arena. Large amount of data is generated during the clinical trials which are recorded by medically qualified experts or investigators. Since many of the clinical trials are multi-centric, it is very obvious that investigators of diverse ethnic background are involved in the study which may leads to the recording of clinical data or medical data in different fashion.

Clinical trials generate an extensive amount of statistical data. With the increasing complexity of segregated data collection, it is imperative to have an effective system to manage and to statistically analyse the data to produce end result. Clinical data management system (CDMS) is used for this purpose.Clinical data management (CDM) includes database entry, verification, quality control and validation of the clinical trial data.

Medical-marketing or pharma-marketing is a term used for implementing the advertising strategies by pharmaceutical/biotech/medical device organizations for the promotion of their brands and products and meet the sales target. Besides, it also helps to regularly update the pharma-healthcare professionals about safe and effective use of the new drugs and devices available in the market.
A pharmaceutical sponsors who invests a huge amount on discovering a drug, expects monetary profit in return. Well planned marketing strategies and enthusiastic sale is required to promote the product in market which fetches corporate profit to the sponsor.

Clinical research generates huge amount of knowledge which is supposed to guide clinical judgement and decision making when implemented wisely. Studies show that a huge gap exists between the knowledge generation and its use in clinical practice. Therefore, in order totranslate knowledge into practice, knowledge generators must ensure that an uninterrupted access of end users to this knowledge. This could be achieved by an efficient channel of communication. Medical communication involves disseminating the medical knowledge mainly among the healthcare professionals and the public but largely among all the stakeholders including policy makers and managers. Transfer or sharing of the medical knowledge among doctors and patients is thus an important step to improve the current status of medical awareness in any geographical area.
