As industry shifts from a fee-for-service healthcare delivery model to one with a greater focus on the value a treatment brings to patient health and system outcomes, drug and medical device developers are taking a more integrated approach in developing their product’s regulatory and reimbursement strategies.
ICON is leading the way to support pharma, biotech and medical device clients through its dedicated Value Access and Outcomes experts, who apply state-of-the-art technology, advanced methodologies and deep expertise to identify, generate, synthesise and communicate meaningful evidence of their treatments’ value.
In the absence of a national HTA body in the US, ICER has emerged as a leading voice in evaluating healthcare technologies on their clinical and economic value. Read our third annual payer survey for insights.Read the whitepaper
In the US, payers have historically focused on efficacy and safety endpoints as well as cost, with very little attention given to patient reported outcomes (PROs). With the increase in patient centricity, we surveyed US payers from MCOs, IDNs and PBMs to get their take on the value and use of PRO data.Read the whitepaper
How will the changes brought about by the pandemic impact your existing pipeline of products? Will you need to adjust your existing HEOR evidence planning and timetables? Are there steps you can take to ensure that patients and providers will still have timely access to your pipeline of products?Read the whitepaper
Digital health innovations can help people better manage chronic diseases and access healthcare when they need it, improving adherence to medications and preventing complications. Our whitepaper provides an introduction and review of digital health and the current regulatory landscape, with a focus on how various US payers perceive these new innovations. Our original research uncovers how US payer organizations currently evaluate and manage digital therapeutics, and their perspectives for the future.Read the whitepaper
Payer Reliance on ICER Assessments and Perceptions on Value-based Pricing
In 2019, the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) launched an international collaboration to develop new methods to guide value-based pricing. This initiative led us to conduct original research on payer reliance on ICER assessments and their perceptions on value-based pricing over the past year, as an update to our original 2018 research.

ICON and ICHOM unveiled the world’s first global patient outcomes benchmarking platform, enabling the collection, storage, aggregation, analysis and visualisation of health outcomes data, at the 2017 ICHOM annual conference.
Through its relationship with ICON, ICHOM is creating a secure central platform where outcomes data is compiled from participating provider organisations around the world. This will enable provider organisations to compare the health outcomes of their patients to those of their peers.
As healthcare systems shift towards value based health care payment models, device developers will need to adopt a strategic approach to maintain premium pricing on the market and to bring new high-value products to market. To be successful, device developers will need an understanding of how incentives are structured and how they influence varying stakeholder interests and behaviours. In addition, they have to identify stakeholder needs early and create strategies for developing evidence to make a compelling value based case for target stakeholder groups.
Read our white paper to learn more about our model for mapping stakeholder value that can help drive profitable device development programmes in increasingly value driven markets.
The precision medicine strategies discussed in this paper present a range of opportunities for new drugs and devices targeted to specific patient populations. These technologies work synergistically together, creating greater value during development and in the clinic. The future will continue to bring rapid convergence of the pharmaceutical and device industries, driven together by the patient, payer, and regulatory forces that are currently shaping the precision medicine market. As we look forward, the future patient may even create a new relationship with device manufacturers as a partner in personalising his or her own healthcare and clinical trial experiences.Download whitepaper
In December 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) expanded the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Initiative to include cardiovascular and hip fracture services, taking a major step in the march towards value-based care in the US.
