Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR)

HEOR is a field of Economic Evaluations of Healthcare Technologies

Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) is an area of economic analyses that deals with the studies and mathematical models (simulations) based on available clinical, epidemiological, economic data and published evidence to inform rational and evidence based decision making. HEOR deals with allocation of funds for healthcare purchasing,  evaluations of the value for money of healthcare technologies, drugs and medical devices in order to inform budgeting and change in clinical practice decisions. Healthcare payers (government, insurance companies, hospitals) operating under constrained budgets are always seeking to maximise the output (value, health, procedures) subject to limited financial resources and other constraints (technical, time, legal, management changes).

Payer engagement apps and tools for pharmaceutical and medical devices market access

Pharma and medical devices companies put a lot of effort into development of their product value story. The value story often takes a form of an MS Excel file or a Power Point deck containing detailed information on burden of illness, product profile, clinical differentiators and health outcomes.

The question is – do these conventional document formats communicate product value story effectively ? Most probably not. With modern digital tools Key Account Managers (KAM) and Medical Science Liaisons (MSL) can present health data and evidence to payers and healthcare providers more effectively.

Interactive health data visualization approaches: good practices and examples

How interactive data visualizations change communication of health data

Presentation of health data is undergoing a big change, one that will influence not only how payers and providers make their decisions but also how pharma, medical devices and in-vitro diagnostics companies will interact with external world. Five years ago, interactive health data visualisations usually took a form of simple dashboards with animated charts and accompanying messages.

Nowadays evolutions of modern web capabilities and emergence of the powerful data visualisation tools open almost unlimited possibilities to visualise data and tell the complex story in an easy to digest manner.

Budget Impact Model app for iPad and Web – an effective tool for payer engagement

iPad budget impact model apps – communication tools for engagement with payers and prescribers

Live tool example

Budget Impact Model (BIM) is the health economics type of model which calculates the net cost of including a new drug or therapy into certain healthcare system or payer, hospital settings. Budget impact model app (budget impact analysis) quantifies the financial impact of a new therapy (drug, medical device, vaccine) for a decision maker (payer), thus allowing pharmaceutical and medical device companies to clearly and persuasively communicate the product cost and clinical value. It is accomplished through measuring the net cumulative cost of particular drug or therapy for a specific number of patients, with at least two (including and excluding the product in question) comparative scenarios.
