Top Quote Pharma IQ has conducted an interview with Chrissie Fletcher, Director and Head of International Biostatistics at Amgen, about Health Technology Assessment. End Quote
  • (1888PressRelease) December 21, 2010 - Fletcher said: "The Health Technology Assessment dossier is really the single opportunity that people have to convince payers of the value of a new product coming through. So in order to do that effectively, the more that that data is available for that dossier, and it's reported in the right way, means that you're going to have your best chance. And it should be as comprehensive and as transparent and as unbiased as possible."

    Fletcher also spoke of Biopharma's increasing attention to focus on products for sub-populations. According to her, a lot of work is beginning to focus around sub-populations of interest. In particular, heath authorities are looking to see "do we have any sub-populations, which are more cost effective?". ''So often we need to make sure that we come up, we have enough data in the literature to look at sub-populations not of our own drugs, but also of our comparators."
