Health Economics: Demonstrating the Value of Medical Technologies
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 12-1:00 p.m Central
Regulatory clearance or approval was once the primary challenge of bringing a new or improved medical device to the market. Now a growing number of payers and providers are not only requiring technology innovators to demonstrate clinical value, but also economic value before they consider use of new technology.

This presentation will discuss how to incorporate value-based strategies important to key stakeholders as part of an overall reimbursement strategy. A value-based strategy focuses on evidence development that incorporates cost and clinical outcomes of care, which is critical to the successful adoption of new technology in this increasingly cost-conscious healthcare environment.

Reimbursement is an increasingly-significant challenge in the healthcare environment. Medical technology may receive regulatory approval and be proven clinically effective, and still fail in the marketplace – all due to lack of reimbursement. To ensure success, medical companies need to be familiar with the coverage, coding, and payment landscape for the technology they are selling. In addition, companies need to understand how reimbursement affects existing business opportunities and be familiar with the latest trends in healthcare delivery that could affect them.

Upcoming Changes to the European IVDR:
Meeting New Clinical Evidence Requirements
View the webinar recording here

The upcoming changes in the European Medical Device Regulations will significantly impact IVDs. The new classification rules for IVDs will result in more premarket reviews of IVD product technical files which may slow down market launch plans. Will you have the clinical evidence needed to declare conformity with the updated essential requirements when the new Europe IVD Regulations (IVDR) go into effect later this year? The requirements apply to new products as well as products already on the market. This Webinar was held on Wednesday, June 29, 2016.
