During the recent years, Managed Entry Agreements (MEAs) have become instrumental in ensuring the access of the innovative medicines. This course is designed for health care professionals (including public decision-makers, academia and industry) involved in pricing and reimbursement decisions who are wishing to understand the applicability and technical aspects of managed entry agreements (MEAs) in countries with severe economic constraints and explicit cost-effectiveness criterion.
The topic will be introduced with key features of pricing and reimbursement systems in Central-Eastern European countries to understand why special methods are needed to facilitate evidence-based reimbursement policies of new health technologies. Faculty will present an economic model to explain the methodology and implications of managed entry agreements in cost-effectiveness and budget impact analysis. Participants will then have the opportunity to apply what they have learned through a hands-on exercise on making pricing and reimbursement decisions.
Participants who wish to gain hands-on experience must have Microsoft Excel for Windows installed on their computers.
