Webinar: France – A New Method, New Framework, and New Roadmap for Improved Patient Access

20th December 2019, 9am CET

In France, it takes 530 days between market authorisation and patients having access to a new medicine. It’s 374 days in Spain, 111 in the UK, and 106 in Germany. In this webinar we discuss the current access challenges to access to new, innovative oncology treatments in Europe, as well as reforming processes to make reimbursement pathways clearer and more efficient. The objective is to foster timely and appropriate access for those patients with unmet medical needs, and increased clarity and certainty around regulatory access decisions.

Webinar: RWE, CAR-T and Cancer – New Methods for Comparative Effectiveness

With the increasing use of new regulatory tools, like the FDA’s breakthrough therapy designation, there are increasing demands for European health technology assessors (HTAs) to make an accurate assessment of the long-term value and performance of CAR-T therapies from smaller datasets and shorter outcomes. This webinar will highlight our recent publication in the BMJ, sponsored by ZIN, which showcases a novel approach to harnessing RWE and develops a longitudinal data set that can be used for effectiveness measures, even in orphan conditions. As well, we will kickoff our new research project in Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and describe how we will leverage our methodology to measure the effectiveness of the various options for treatment, both in emerging CAR-T treatments, as well as existing chemotherapy regimes and bone-marrow transplants.

Tomorrow’s Cures: Impacts of the International Pricing Index

Hosted by GIPC and Vital Transformation Thursday, July 18, 2019 – 4:00 – 5:00 PM Capitol Hill Visitor’s Center (Room 209-08) First St. NE, Washington, DC 20515 We invite you to join us for a discussion on how the International Pricing Index (IPI) penalizes innovation by targeting companies with the most advanced, newest products. Join GIPC and Vital Transformation to discuss the impacts of IPI on patients, outcomes, and innovation.


The International Pricing Index: What will be the Impact on Patients, Outcomes, and Innovation?

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM BIO International Convention - Philadelphia, PA Following Vital Transformation's research on investment success factors for biotech companies released at the European Health Forum Gastein, this session will present original research modelling the potential impact both short and long term for patients, payers, and industry for such proposals, and show how the IPI can impact access and innovation broadly. As well, our panellists will place the IPI into the context of other models currently being investigated internationally such as value based payments, managed entry agreements, and adaptive pathways.

Supporting IP in Europe

Vital Transformation leads a new consortia investigating the relationship between public funding and private investment into new innovative therapies and the supporting system of IP. This project will develop original research investigating the success factors that create successful EU biotech companies and communicate the importance of IP in creating an ecosystem where investors are willing to lose everything 92% of the time, in order to fund the 8% of medical breakthroughs that succeed.

April 13th -15th, 2015 - Theme 9 - Big Data, Mobile Health

Harnessing Big Data to make better, quicker medical decisions is a logical development. However, this demands a delicate balance between individual patient rights and the wider public good. This theme explores how to reconcile these issues to maximise the benefits offered by harnessing available health data. How can Big Data improve patient outcomes and accelerate clinical development? What are the implications of data ownership, and what will be the role of social media in healthcare?
