Market access is extremely important for the success of innovative technologies. It includes obtaining reimbursement (ability to pay for procedure/device) and funding (willingness to pay). To establish reimbursement and funding, multiple activities might be needed, including application for procedure code and change of the Diagnosis-Related Group (DRG) system, applications for reimbursement review, and health technology assessment. In this presentation, one of the leading European market access experts, Oleg Borisenko, will outline some of the specifics of the market access processes and how medical writers can contribute to these processes. In particular, the following questions will be addressed: · What are the typical reimbursement barriers for medical devices in Europe? · What are the typical requirements to overcome reimbursement barriers? · What can be a role for a medical writer to support reimbursement activities? · What is the concept of the value dossier?
