This round table will feature demonstrations of how next-generation technologies and social media will integrate with public health, thus facilitating the burgeoning market for personalised medicines. The session will include disruptive start-ups and technology savvy practitioners finding common ground in the desire to bring stratified medicines to patients.
This webinar is by invitation only for the following participants: EFPIA, PhRMA, EBE and Vaccines Europe members.
This webinar will update EFPIA members on Medicines Adaptive Pathways to Patients (MAPPs) and its potential impact on research, development, licensing, HTA, and pricing & reimbursement in relation to early patient access.
One of the biggest health care challenges in the coming years is how technology can be used to improve health service delivery. With the steadily increasing average life expectancy across all of Europe expected to be over 80 by 2025 and 82.5 by 2050, new and improved processes need to be delivered to meet future health requirements.
CONFERENCE REPORT: On October 21st, an international group of experts was invited to the Royal College of Physicians in London to discuss how new clinical regulatory pathways, sources of evidence, and evolving data on real world patients can be used both to expedite the development of drugs and improve their quality and access. Broadly called “MAPPs” (Medicines Adaptive Pathways to Patients), the goal is to speed patient access to needed therapies while increasing the productivity of industry R&D spending.
GASTEIN, AUSTRIA, 1 October 2014 – Medicines developed in clinical trials under controlled circumstances may perform differently in patients in the real world. To a large extent this is because clinical trial protocols exclude relevant groups, for example, the over 60s, those taking other drugs, people with co-morbidities.
Austerity cuts have put Europe’s health systems under severe pressure, increasing health inequalities and threatening sustainability in the future. Now, European governments and the European Union (EU) need to take immediate action to prevent further damage.
