<> Topic: HEALTH TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT – STRATEGIES FOR ACCELERATED ACCESS
<> Summary: Approach to health technology assessment and access for innovative therapies are rapidly evolving in recent years. Each country across Europe has framed its own pathway, while payers continue struggling to ensure sustainable access for innovative treatments within limitations of their budgets. There is a growing interest to synergise HTA methods, optimise processes and criteria, including establishment of early dialogue, utilization of common decision-making tools, while respecting country-specific needs.
8th annual symposium “HEALTH TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT – STRATEGIES FOR ACCELERATED ACCESS” will be a unique opportunity to network with stakeholders and learn from renowned international speakers with global, country-specific, academic and regulatory expertise in HTA, international reference pricing, negotiation of discounts and rebates and formulation of managed entry agreements.

<> Access: An invitation from the Organizing Committee is required to participate in the HTA symposium, and places are limited. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
