Component Type: Session

Effective therapies are coming fast and furious, often with higher and higher pricing. While effective treatments increase efficiency and reduce treatment costs, there are no processes nor mechanisms that exist in Europe to claw back funding from regional budgets that create savings locally. What needs to change, if anything? What evidence and systems need to be developed to fix this problem, or is it not a problem at all? This session will discuss: • The market for Orphan indications is growing 11% per year, and will be 25% of drug spending by the year 2025. Is this a good or a bad thing? • Playing Hot Potato with Pricing - How do we build a reimbursement system fit for purpose?
