Europe’s IMI Helps Drive New R&D and Access Models

May 12, 2017

At DIA’s first BioVenture Day in Europe, Dr. Wija Oortwijn, a founding Member of the International Society for Health Technology Assessments and Sector Leader for Health and Partner of Ecorys, delivered the presentation Links Between Pharmaceutical R&D Models and Access to Affordable Medicines, which highlighted a year-long study on access to affordable medicines conducted on behalf of the European Parliament Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.  “We concluded that a health care system can only be truly effective if full information on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of each medicine is available,” explains Dr. Oortwijn in this exclusive Global Forum podcast. “Processes to optimize available budgets to pay for innovative but also effective new medicines need to be in place, and health technology assessment should be enabled to collect information that is valuable for all stakeholders – including the public.” Learn more about these topics at our Value & Regulatory Strategy Workshop in Europe.
