NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- How Pharma can meet payer's expectations of value
Payers want value, but what does that mean? Is it price, efficacy, safety, clinical outcomes, the patient view or wider health savings? With no consensus on the definition of value, how can industry meet the expectations of diverse and often sceptical US and European payers to secure market access?
Informed by expert payer and industry opinion, What is Value in Healthcare? The payers' definition identifies the critical elements of value for payers, reviews ways value is assessed and proposes practical strategies for how companies positively engage to build their value case.
"Often there is a conceit amongst the pharmaceutical industry that if their product is really innovative, we will pay a lot more for it. We won't. We want improved outcomes."

Cause and effect: What's driving the "value" revolution and how might it evolve?
Start at the beginning: How can early payer engagement help industry build payer-specific value propositions
Building the evidence: How can the inclusion of real world evidence can be harnessed to support clinical data in building a persuasive value case for payers?
Assessment frameworks: How should Pharma respond to the emerging value assessment frameworks that are influencing US payers' decision making?
