Upcoming Live Webinar Pharmacoeconomic Assessment through Market Approval and Beyond: Theory and Operations

CINCINNATI, OH — (July 29, 2015) – Medpace experts will be presenting a live webinar titled: Pharmacoeconomic Assessment through Market Approval and Beyond: Theory and Operations.

DATE: Wednesday, August 26

TIME: 11:30am ET / 8:30am



About the Webinar:

Pharmacoeconomic assessment of a drug, medical device, or other healthcare product can take on many forms and occur at multiple points in the development cycle. Cost-effectiveness analysis, a major component of pharmacoeconomic assessment, has traditionally occurred in the later phases of product development— either as a piggy-back to a phase III or pivotal clinical trial, or peri-authorization.

Join Medpace experts, Lee Walke and Matthew Page, as they explore the application of pharmacoeconomic assessment throughout all phases of clinical trials as well as in observational studies, including registries and other post-marketing data collection. Discussion will cover topics including:

  • How pharmacoeconomic assessment can be envisioned in the context of early phase product development, implemented, maintained to support product marketing, and used to inform future decision-making.
  • Cost-effectiveness analysis at different phases in the product development cycle.
  • Pharmacoeconomic assessment in the post-marketing context.
  • Comparing and contrasting approaches for small/medium product developers relative to larger companies.
  • Case studies on “real world” implementation
