This event, Part II in a three part series that will explore the value of health, will focus on Medicare and Medicaid in the U.S., existing access and reimbursement issues for innovative therapies and cures, proposed changes to those programs that could impact access and reimbursement, and barriers that exist to innovative payment models. The event will also consider those key international models of assessing value and determining access, how the global landscape is shifting, what the U.S. may be able to learn from them, and highlight emerging markets like China that are moving toward the realm of “must consider” when developing an international strategy. Speakers will share lessons learned and case studies around:
We believe this issue is especially timely. We’re at an inflection point, with science that’s been tested for decades finally becoming a reality for patients and a payer system that has not caught up with this level of innovation. Myriad factors are combining to alter the status quo – with policymakers demanding action, and healthcare stakeholders agreeing that we must come up with real solutions. If we don’t come together and address the value equation as an industry and ensure patient access to all new therapies, government or other stakeholders will – and they will likely get it wrong.
Drinks and appetizers will be provided. If you're not a MassBio member but are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
