NHS Evidence - health management - Tue, 04/08/2015 - 10:43

Office of Health Economics (OHE) -

Understanding the answers to these questions can be crucial when conducting cost-effectiveness analyses i.e. when studying if it is desirable to publicly fund reimburse a new drug. This paper models and studies the price of a new drug along its life-cycle, from launch to discontinuation, to understand how the price of the drug evolves and to help inform cost-effectiveness evaluations.
