How We Do It

Analytic approach to informing foundational decisions

A global network of experts bring methods and insights from health technology assessment and economic modelling to help innovative companies make informed strategic decisions early in technology development.

Clinical Application Evaluation

Early-stage innovators often have a number of options with respect to the choice of beachhead clinical application of new technology.

Early value assessment analysis informs this critical foundational decision-making early in technology development, supporting innovators to make strategic choices that maximize technology commercial potential and probability of success.

Headroom Analysis

Technology commercial potential can be assessed and quantified considering the headroom for improvement of health relative to the current standard of care for a chosen clinical condition, as well as the headroom to improve the treatment cost profile and economic efficiency for target payers.

  • Prevalence/incidence
  • Burden of illness
  • Current recommended treatments (effectiveness/cost)
  • Cost and effectiveness gaps in current treatments
  • Scientific rationale and existing evidence for technology use
  • Factors affecting implementability in clinical practice
  • Issues with conducting clinical trials

Headroom analysis supports innovators to define and articulate the commercial potential and viability of clinical application for their technology.

Economic Value Drivers Identification

The economic value of technology to health systems and payers typically is driven by a limited number of variables influenced by technology, both in terms of health and cost improvement.

Economic value drivers analysis supports innovators:

  1. Clarity: Understand the most important drivers of the technology value proposition
  2. Focus: Positions to focus R&D and data collection/evidence generation activities around these key drivers
  3. Demonstration: Generate evidence in order to make the strongest case for technology adoption

Evidence Requirement Mappings

Health care payers require specific evidence of the economic value of technology in order for procurement/adoption, scale and spread.

Evidence requirements mapping enables innovators to develop an evidence generation plan that ensures development of evidence sufficient to support commercial success:

Evidence Requirements : Early insights into the likely evidence requirements for commercialization

Duration and Cost : Likely time, cost, and probability of successfully generating evidence sufficient for adoption, scale and spread
