About the team:
Our Market Access team’s expertise is in pricing and market access with a focus on payer research. The team covers a broad range of therapeutic areas including oncology, rare disease and infectious diseases and vaccines.
Geographically, our core focus is on Europe, the US and other international developed markets with established Health Technology Assessment such as Canada, Australia, South Korea and Japan. We have a strong in-house payer & payer-advising Key Opinion Leader network in these markets which allows us to speak to the most relevant experts for each project. We also have a relatively high proportion of projects in emerging markets, including APAC, MENA, LATAM and CEE, as well as some global health projects in resource-limited settings such as Sub-Saharan Africa and India.
The majority of the team’s projects include landscape assessments based on secondary research followed by a primary qualitative payer research component (e.g. via in-depth interviews, focus groups or advisory boards). Objectives of the studies we work on commonly include pricing and reimbursement potential, willingness to reimburse/fund studies, uncovering payer evidence expectations to feed into evidence generation plans, value message testing/refinement, payer archetyping and indication launch sequencing.
