  • (1888PressRelease) June 28, 2017 - Now in its 23rd year, SMi’s Pharmaceutical Pricing and Market Access industry summit will once again return to Central London on 11th and 12th October. As well as honing in on key regulatory updates, expert led pricing strategy and growing new markets such as orphan drugs and biosimilars, the agenda for 2017 will also offer hands on training through two pre-conference interactive workshops taking place on 10th October.

    The first workshop on “The Future of Drug Pricing” will be hosted by pricing and market access specialist consultants, RJW Partners. Pharmaceutical innovation is changing the pricing landscape forcing payers and companies to rethink their pricing objectives and methodologies. The workshop led by Ad Rietveld, Director and John Spoors, Associate Director, will look ahead into future pharmaceutical pricing trends and prepare attendees for changes in market dynamics with areas such as personalised gene therapy and orphan drugs.

    The second workshop on “Using Real World Evidence (RWE) to Translate Expedited Regulatory Approval into Faster Reimbursed Patient Access” will be hosted by global CRO, Parexel. Led by Janice Haigh, VP Pricing & Market Access; Oliver Leatham, Vice President, Global Head of Pricing & Market Access; and Richard Macaulay, Principal Consultant, this workshop will explore RWE as a tool to fill the evidentiary gap between regulators and payers and in turn, obtain faster reimbursement. It will address challenges in how data is collected, analysed and utilized in payer decision-making and also include presentations from HTA payer bodies to provide their perspective on how RWE can be best utilized to meet common industry hurdles.
