Pharma IQ is pioneering new HTA discussion platform with launch of the first ever HTA Online event - Global HTA and CER Forum, which will take an innovative form of 12 online session over the course of August.

• National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)
• Patented Medicine Prices Review Board (PMPRB)
• Spanish Agency for Health Technology Assessment (AETS)
• Roche Products
• Office of Health Economics
• F. Hoffmann-La Roche
Key topics to discussed by expert panel include:
- Speeding the reimbursement processes with first-hand input from prominent HTA bodies: NICE, OHE and HIQA
- Exploring the efforts of standardisation of HTA in Europe
- Implementing a best practice approach to value-based pricing
- Analysing the finer points of performance-based reimbursement and its impact
- Aligning HTA strategies with insight from leading pharma and biotech companies: GSK, Roche and Amgen
- Designing product development programmes to maximise reimbursement success
The online form of the event is meant to help to reach the global audience and enable experts from Europe to have a live discussion with their colleagues in US, Canada and Australia without the need to leave their desk.
