Panel Discussion: HEALTH ECONOMICS

Integrate Health Economics & Outcome Research in Product Development

Cost-effectiveness analysis is commonly undertaken as a one-off exercise. However, the benefits of an iterative use of economic evaluation during the new product development process have been viewed as extremely valuable. Develop a blueprint to:

  • Address complex, systemic health economics and outcomes questions by incorporating big data and system modelling in your approach
  • Ensure health economics is covered every step of the way in new product development

Optimize your product development process with big data, system modelling and outcome research.
