A New Paradigm – How to Get Ahead with Value-Based Contracts Through Optimizing RWE

Uncertainty in pharmaceutical markets has led to ongoing debates surrounding a range of healthcare topics. One such topic is the implementation of innovative contracts, shifting away from the traditional fixed costper- unit approach. Value-based contracts (VBC) is the result of a drive to manage costs whilst better aligning with the value of care, and allows the use of RWE to spread the risk between pharma and health insurers whilst making high cost therapies more accessible to patients. Despite VBC and RWE moving up the agenda of leaders and becoming more commonplace, there are unanswered questions and challenges that must be address.

This breakfast workshop, run by Omar Ali, QIPP Adviser Payer Network, will explore the different ways to set up VBC arrangements while addressing the risks and common challenges when using VBC and RWE and how to overcome them. Download the full event guide to learn more.
