England is one the most attractive markets for medical devices in Europe.
Large population, well-structured reimbursement processes and first-class research and treatment facilities make it the country of choice for market entry for medical device companies.
On the other side, market access in England is very much evidence-driven, which requires good level of clinical evidence for acceptance of novel technologies. Also, a complex reimbursement system (National Tariff Payment System) and funding framework (including commissioning by NHS England or Clinical Commissioning Groups) with a strong advisory role of National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) makes the market access environment difficult to understand and navigate in.
We built this seminar based on experience from dozens of market access projects in England, to help develop better understanding of the market access landscape in England and to inform better business decisions whether to go to this market or not and if yes, how to approach it.
Key stakeholders are reviewed including payers, policy-makers, advising organizations, managers of procedural (OPCS) classification and payment system (HRG, National Tariff)
Specifics of commissioning processes by NHS England and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are reviewed as well
Money flow and distribution of funds, overview of the payment models (within and outside National Tariff Payment System), composition of National Tariff, specifics of Healthcare Resource Groups (HRGs), process to introduce changes into HRG system
Landscape after Accelerated Access Review, Accelerated Access Collaborative, transformative technologies, Innovation and Technology Payment, Commissioning through Evaluation
Overview of five med tech and IVD programs at NICE, role of HTA in market access for medical devices and IVD tests
A separate comprehensive overview of the reimbursement system for IVD tests in England
A separate comprehensive overview of the organizational and financing framework of screening methods (e.g. breast and cervical cancer screening) in England
Some topics are not specifically covered in this seminar: reimbursement model in out-patient settings, reimbursement for medical aids (devices for home use), nuances of health technology assessments at NICE, funding of capital equipment
Introductory presentation also does not include details of reimbursement application processes (e.g. application form, requirements, details of the process for creation of procedure code, HRG change, adding device to the High Cost Device List etc.)
