  • (1888PressRelease) August 22, 2015 - Recent advances in the sophistication of HTA analysis and modelling, flexible pay for performance models, risk-sharing and value-based pricing schemes have become increasingly important to mitigate payer risk and allocate financial resources to the areas of pressing need. Savings and outcome improvements can also be found through finding efficiency gains at the healthcare delivery level, providing the right incentives for prescribers and improving patient adherence.

The two-day conference programme will help further your understanding and enable you to develop best practice approaches to such complex market access & pricing challenges, with the ultimate goal of encouraging innovation and improving patient access to novel and powerful medications though case studies presented by GSK, Sanofi, MSD and more who will be presenting at the two-day conference.
