Event Details

For a growing number of therapies, especially specialty drugs, manufacturers can no longer assume payer coverage and patient access based on regulatory approval alone. Increasingly, manufacturers are being asked to first demonstrate the “value” of the drug – to patients and to the health care system – and thus, justify its price, before being added to a formulary. The challenge? There is no objective or shared measure of value or method for measuring it.

This event, Part I in a three part series that will explore the value of health, will focus on the changing pricing, access, and reimbursement landscape early to mid-stage biopharma companies are facing, and give recommendations about what actions they should take to ensure patient access when their drug comes to market, including:

  • Assessing how different healthcare stakeholders think about value
  • Understanding how the industry and manufacturers can best make the case for value
  • Examining the growing use of health technology assessments in determining value
  • Understanding the implementation of innovative payment methods such as value-based arrangements
  • Learning about the importance of real-world evidence in determining value over time and for future therapies

Drinks and appetizers will be provided. If you’re not a MassBio member but are interested in attending, please email communications@massbio.org.
