Payer Agreements Discussed in New FirstWord Report Recently Published at MarketPublishers.com25 Nov 2011 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – With tightening budgets and the contraction of payer funding for new products, it is getting more and more problematic for pharmaceutical companies to gain an access to the market.
Across the UK, the US, Canada, Australia and some European nations, payer schemes are becoming a common practice. Schemes advanced by pharmaceutical companies either aim to grapple financial issues such as price volume agreements, or they tackle uncertainty by addressing increased data collection. And the question arises – What are the key features that will ensure success?
New market research report “Payer Agreements: Splitting the Risk” worked out by FirstWord offers a complete and concise overview of payer schemes by definition and category.
- detailed examination of the role of agreements in global pricing, reimbursement and market access;
- discussion of the drivers for schemes, including health technology assessment (HTA) and financial challenges;
