Description


Health Economics for the Evaluation of Medical Devices

Event outline:

Health Economics is increasingly being used to inform the design and development of new medical technologies and is also a vital component in determining their commercial viability. The aim of this seminar is to describe the health economic methods available for health technology assessment (HTA) and in particular, to discuss the challenges associated with the assessment of Medical Devices (MDs). The following topics will be discussed:

  • The current regulatory landscape for MDs
  • The particular characteristics of MDs that lead to additional challenges for health technology assessment (HTA) of MDs
  • Key aspects of the conduct and methods of HTA for MDs.
  • The key recommendations for improvements in processes and methods that could enhance the potential for HTA and optimize the diffusion of MDs.

This seminar is aimed at medical device developers, manufacturers, regulators, healthcare practitioners, analysts, consultants, and health technology assessors interested in health economic methodologies and their application throughout the full development and evaluation pathway of MDs. Those attending may be new to the field of HTA for MDs and may be working in an academic or industry environment. This seminar will also be suitable for experienced analysts interested in having a deeper understanding of the challenges of medical device evaluation.
