New York, NY (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
Kantar Health, a leading global healthcare consulting firm, today announced that Ian McKinnon, Ph.D., chief research officer, and Debbie Warner, vice president, oncology market access, will present at the PharmaMarket Research Conference February 7 in Parsippany, N.J.
Dr. McKinnon and Ms. Warner will present “Is pricing research more difficult than herding cats…and maybe even less fruitful?” This presentation will argue that rigorous scientific methods can be used to identify the optimal pricing for multiple stakeholders. Further, the session will discuss a system dynamics model that integrates the unique impact of cost in its multiple forms on each decision maker and then determines the unified, multi-decision maker impact of price and its optimal value.
Pricing a new drug is a complex process of understanding the interplay between access challenges posed by payers, the willingness to pay of patients, and the balancing of clinical outcomes and patient costs for physicians. Complex diseases are often further subject to influences from other stakeholders, such as advocacy groups and channel members.
