PSI Webinar: HTA Submissions in the UK

Time: 10:00 - 12:00 UK time
Presenters: Jessica Purchase, Group Health Economics Manager (F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Welwyn) and Monica Daigl, HTA Statistician and Health Economist (F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Basel)


There is a simple equation for access in the UK: Access = Reimbursement + Uptake

Yet, whilst a simple and logical approach, each component is challenging to achieve.

This webinar focuses on the National Reimbursement side: the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) - who they are, what is involved in the Health Technology Appraisal (HTA) assessment, how they make decisions.

We’ll also review where the devolved nations come in: how do the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) and All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG) differ from NICE in decision making?

Finally, through the use of a real world example, we’ll explore the key drivers and barriers experienced in decision making: specifically the challenges associated with correct comparators and predicting of long term outcomes.

This will lead to the second part of the webinar. We will focus on two advanced statistical techniques to inform health economic models: modelling of time to event endpoints such as progression free and overall survival beyond the duration of a clinical study to predict long-term outcomes; and network meta analyses to estimate the value of a drug in the absence of direct comparative evidence.

Finally, we provide our key recommendations for the future of clinical trial design, to support access for the UK market.
