Health Economics Research

At Medicys we partner with, and are preferred suppliers to, many leading health economics firms who focus on measuring and valuing the outcomes of healthcare interventions and who seek to understand how to navigate regulatory frameworks and Health Technology Assessment processes.

Specifically, our pricing and market access specialists recruit, interview and report on our network of local, regional and national payers (and ex payers) and Payer Advising Key Opinion Leaders (PA-KOLs) on topics such as:

  • Economic Evaluation
  • Cost of illness
  • Cost comparison, effectiveness, utility and benefit
  • Thresholds and opportunity costs
  • Value driven healthcare systems
  • Health Policy and Regulatory frameworks
  • Approval and labelling
  • Pricing Policy and pricing Schemes
  • Reimbursement and access
  • Insurance systems and national healthcare
  • Public spending and national health expenditures
  • Procurement systems
  • Risk sharing approaches
  • Health Technology Assessment
  • Systems and structure
  • Value framework and dossier format
  • Decisions and deliberative processes

Our projects in this discipline usually take the form of Web Assisted Telephone Depth Interviews (WATDIs), online groups or advisory boards (digital or in person).
