The Nordic Partnership is a collaboration between three independent Market Access experts: Peter Hertzman, Eivind Jörgensen, and Jonas Lundkvist (see our Bios below). We set up a tailored collaboration as one partner, and when more resources or expertise are needed, we bring in additional resources from our network.
We all have many years of experience from both within pharmaceutical industry and from market access healthcare consulting. All three of us have substantial hands-on experience in preparing and managing launches of new products – both at the local country and at the international levels, including working with SMEs, Big Pharma and Med Tech companies. Based on our broad experience, we can undertake all activities that fall under the category of “market access”, i.e., from identifying market access opportunities, developing market access strategies to implementing market access plans, including HTA submissions and interacting with local stakeholders. In addition, we are open to working more actively within companies if there are temporary shortages.
When you work with us you will always interact with a Senior Market Access expert.
