With the rising costs of care due to aging population and elevated burden of chronic disease, there has been an increasing momentum for innovation in healthcare payment and delivery systems. Healthcare systems across the world have adopted Health Technology Assessments (“HTA”) to drive value-based care and developing real-world evidence for care innovation.
EuroCham with Deloitte as venue host held an industry information sharing seminar where Industry and Health Economics experts shared insights, best practices and organisational experiences from working with HTA systems in other jurisdictions. The seminar also included a panel discussion where industry experts discussed challenges and opportunities in developing HTA based submissions and the required organizational capabilities and competencies.
Well-attended by pharmaceutical and medical technology industry professionals, the event ended on a high note with Robert Bowers from Singapore Association of Pharmaceutical Industries (SAPI), Anthony Morton-Small of Vista Health Pte Ltd, Alice Morgan of Deloitte Australia, Patrick Tung from AstraZeneca and Mohit Grover of Deloitte Singapore fielding numerous questions from the audience.
