One of the core principles of effective payer engagement by the pharmaceutical industry includes understanding the budgetary decision-makers’ motivations and their capacity to act.
Berlin, Germany (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
CBPartners, one of the world’s leading authorities on strategic issues related to healthcare, is proud to announce the firm’s involvement with the 2013 Payers’ Forum Europe, a meeting coordinated in conjunction with eyeforpharma.
The meeting’s key theme was to form more collaborative relationships among pharmaceutical payers and the industry. The meeting explored a variety of related topics, including management within an environment of austerity, HTA harmonisation, and payer-perspectives on strategic planning for access in Germany and England.
Ms. Monica Martin de Bustamante, Managing Director of CBPartners, moderated a panel exploring methods for success with clinical commissioning groups, the new budgetary decision-makers throughout the United Kingdom. “One of the core principles of effective payer engagement by the pharmaceutical industry includes understanding the budgetary decision-makers’ motivations and their capacity to act,” Ms. Bustamante explains. “Quite often, we find that pharmaceutical manufacturers can complicate a rather simple value story by including extraneous data and statements that simply muddy the waters.”
The CBPartners team also ran a successful session educating the attendees about recent examples of pharmaceutical manufacturers who effectively communicate the value of their products, thereby yielding positive reimbursement decisions. Dr. Rachel Beckerman, Principal of Value Demonstration, also supported the session’s case-based approach, adding, “HTA agencies are raising the standards expected to receive positive scores and reimbursement decisions. The evidence-based requirements are at an all-time high; the good news, however, is that HTA agencies are open to early-consultations so that their views can be incorporated within pivotal trial designs.”
