Pfizer and the Roche Group claim the #1 and #2 positions for leading
the way in redefining their value to HCPs
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
A global study released today by InterbrandHealth identifies the
biopharma companies that are addressing healthcare professionals’
(HCPs), payers’, and policymakers’ needs. A commitment to brand is a
promise to address healthcare challenges and meet the needs of these
The study examines what value means to HCPs and illustrates the
influence the corporate brand has in conveying that value. It reveals
how leading companies are beginning to deliver on what matters to HCPs.
Looking to the future, healthcare professionals desire a commitment to
innovative healthcare solutions that go “beyond the pill.” As a result,
leading biopharma companies are adapting their business models,
increasing transparency, exploring nontraditional solutions in areas
like digital therapies, and ramping up their corporate citizenship
“Biopharma is at a pivotal moment, and the time for change is now,” said
Jane Parker, InterbrandHealth’s CEO.
Dr. Ronnie Hershman, a cardiologist affiliated with NYU Langone Long
Island Cardiac Care and the CEO of HealthEffect, LLC, noted, “The
biopharma industry has relied on blockbuster drugs for a long time, but
healthcare is changing, and what physicians need has changed. Biopharma
companies need to shift and think about what else they can offer.”
Best Pharma Brands ranks these leading companies by qualifying the
industry’s definition of value through brand, then quantifying the
corporate brand’s contribution to business performance. The ranking
identifies the 10 most valuable biopharma brands. In total, these 10
brands represent approximately USD $129 billion in brand value. Pfizer
and the Roche Group secure the #1 and #2 positions on the ranking.

Best Pharma Brands also sets an important industry benchmark by
highlighting the need for biopharma companies to change how they
interact with the market and meet the needs of the healthcare community.
Parker commented that “these 10 biopharma brands are embracing a
strategy that is somewhat new to the health and life sciences sector:
they are effectively leveraging their corporate brands and, in doing so,
they are growing their businesses, fueling innovation, and developing
meaningful solutions for patients on a global scale.”
Best Pharma Brands is powered by global research data, feedback from
HCPs, and data-driven insights. The underlying methodology mirrors
Interbrand’s Best Global Brands, which demonstrates that strong brands
can withstand market volatility and are more likely to outperform key
financial indices like the S&P 500.
To be considered, biopharma brands must have a global presence, generate
revenue from the sale of prescription medicines, report the ratio of
revenues generated from sales of prescription medicines, possess a
strong pipeline of potential future prescription medicines, have
awareness among HCPs, and serve as the primary external-facing
