Staring in to the abyss? Navigating the NHS post election
Regardless of the colour of the next UK government that emerges as a result of the May election, the £30-£50bn NHS budget chasm is the abyss that all the parties fear in respect of its thereat to quality health service delivery and re-election.
With political backs to the abyss, no hostages will be taken. It is not unrealistic to expect a well co-ordinated and concerted offence by politicians and patient organisations alike on industry pricing of innovative speciality and rare diseases medicines:
With this scenario in mind pharmaphorum is once again working with IMS Health to bring you expert insight into what this means for the UK health system and more specifically market access for specialist treatments in the post-election environment.
Angela McFarlane, Senior principal IMS Health Local Market Access, Anthony Grosso, Principal Pharmacist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and Sheela Upadhyaya, previously a NHS Senior Manager with over 17 years of experience in the delivery of services and in commissioning of highly specialised services for rare and ultra rare conditions, combine with pharmaphorum's Paul Tunnah to deliver an accurate analysis and frontline insight as to the already complex roadmap for access is about to change again.
This one hour event will include analysis of informed predictions which include:
The NICE HTA criteria will get tougher post end to end review (IMMTreV)
NICE and the NHS England will join forces to streamline access pre/post NICE
Risk at local level will be shifted to Providers under the new marginal tariff arrangements; which could indeed see a close to the CDF as the PbR excluded drugs list becomes a thing of a glorious past
Provider baselines will take the strain of innovation - the tough decisions will be softened by a drive to really accelerate uptake of NICE approved medicines
How can industry prepare for these changes in what is already a tough and complex environment?

A digital debate analysing the future for biologics in the UK and the factor affecting market access in this territory. Our expert panel will cover a number of key topics including:
•Are the savings offered by biosimilars being used to innovate and take advantage of the exciting new biologic technologies or just filling in the NHS potholes?
•Will the industry continue to invest in cutting-edge research if the UK is not prepared to fund access to it
•In a post-Brexit world how can the UK continue to be a global leader at the cutting edge of biologics research?
Market access is influencing drug development and commercial launch strategy more than ever before, with 85% of prescription drugs in the United States reimbursed through managed care plans. Biopharma companies must take into account a multitude of factors when considering physician prescribing behaviors, and need a more integrated "pull-through" strategy across their teams, from managed markets, to marketing, to field sales. Just as an engine needs a steady supply of fuel to run efficiently, prescriber-facing teams – the commercial engine of life sciences companies – need market access data and insights to accelerate brand success. Today, the challenge is optimizing this fuel supply, as market access and commercial teams often operate in a siloed way with regards to data, market changes and insights.
Join a vibrant conversation with industry leaders to discuss how the industry is changing and adapting to operationalize market access pull-through for improved commercial success.

Growing patient influence combined with new technologies and the requirements of new reimbursement models means clinical research is undergoing rapid transformation. Industry is being compelled to move towards more patient centric solutions to keep up with these changes. With healthcare stakeholders in agreement that patient engagement is key to realising the value of clinical trials, regulators, sponsors, CROs, research funders and publishers are all moving towards more patient-focused models.
With the advent of new methodologies, such as electronic data sources and medical records, recruiting patients for trials now demands extensive collaboration between patients and trial centers to effectively and efficiently run trials. The patient has never been more important.
To mark Clinical Trials Awareness Week, pharmaphorum, in partnership with INC, will present a live webinar exploring the challenges and solutions of the current environment and how collaboration can benefit research participation, as well as the vital role the patient advocate plays in these matters.

Pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals who have a deep understanding of medicines and daily contact with patients and consumers. This puts them in a unique position in terms of being able to maximise the benefits that patients get from their medicines – however, healthcare systems and pharmaceutical companies frequently overlook this potential.
Pharmacists are especially well placed to help patients with multiple long-term conditions manage their health and medications, and pharmacist-led interventions have been shown to have a very significant impact on compliance and disease management in the community.
We present a webinar debate in which our expert panel will discuss how pharmaceutical companies can work in collaboration with pharmacists in Europe to help patients make the most of their medicines, help generate data to prove the value of these interventions, and above all get the right medicine to the right patients and consumers.
Join us and the PHOENIX group as we look at the practical steps needed to make this a reality. Key topics to be discussed include:
•The challenges of identifying the right patient population across European markets
•Understanding how pharmacists can play a greater role in patient care, e.g. improved adherence and outcomes
•How optimum use of pharmacy level information can contribute to providing ‘real world’ evidence of treatments

2017 is once again a year of significant change for pharma market access in Europe, with affordability on the agenda for almost every country in the region. There is a move toward greater collaboration in health technology assessment and more transparency between countries for pricing, therapeutic protocols and and details of negotiations with drug manufacturers. We also see member states working to understand the process of enabling cost-effective patient access to personalised and high-cost treatments, such as new oncology combination therapies, antibiotics and stem cell therapies, which offer the promise of efficacy in key disease areas.
With market access being referred to as the “fourth hurdle” in drug development (beyond efficacy, safety and quality), it is vital that the requirements for both approval and access are addressed early in the process. Parallel scientific advice from HTA bodies and regulators is increasing to deliver tangible and successful strategies, but is the process smooth enough to overcome the challenges from both sides?
pharmaphorum in partnership with DIA will be hosting an expert panel debating the best way forward for life sciences companies, payers and providers in this emerging European market access paradigm.
Join our webinar to hear from experts in industry and healthcare discussing the challenges and solutions of access in the changing European market.
Topics up for discussion include:
•Integrating HTA and regulatory strategy – the best way forward
•Regional variation and implication – how to efficiently and effectively navigate EU market access
•Proving value – how to leverage real world evidence to meet increasing demands for observational data
•Future proofing market access – how to improve upon evidence generation and use technology effectively and competitively

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent and most costly conditions worldwide – with a prevalence equating to 8.5% of the global population. Due to the complex nature of diabetes, with numerous co-morbidities and its asymptomatic nature, accurately modelling and therefore discerning which interventions are most effective, in terms of cost and patient impact is an equally complicated process.
This webinar will explore the patient pathway and how effective modelling – when pharma works together with healthcare stakeholders – can improve outcomes for both patients and the healthcare system as a whole.
