At Novartis, we are reimagining medicine to address some of society's most challenging healthcare issues. We discover and develop breakthrough treatments and find new ways to deliver them to as many people as possible.
1.4 million patients are projected to be supported by Novartis Patient Specialty Services (PSS) by 2023. Importantly, PSS is increasingly providing strategic leadership, execution and resources to help appropriate patients access, initiate and remain on the Novartis medications needed to improve their lives. Today a significant percentage of patients are unable to access appropriate treatments and are lost before their first prescription is filled, with a majority lost at year one. Losing a majority of patients for preventable reasons is unacceptable and we know patients deserve better.
Imagine a dynamic strategy that dedicates greater technology, creativity, and talent to drive the innovative HCP and patient support to access, in order to allow appropriate patients to start and stay on their medications. Enhancing critical capabilities around the patient and HCP experience "post prescription" is the exact vision of Novartis PSS and the reason we are seeking top talent for the role Field Reimbursement Manager. Patients are the core of what we do here at Novartis, we are reimagining medicine to build, design, implement, and run dynamic end-to-end patient support offerings to help support patient success.
