Know Your Payers: Will Insurers Pay for Your Health Technology?

October 26, 2022

Event Navigation

Understanding how private insurance companies and publicly funded health systems decide which health technologies to pay for and how much they are willing to pay for them is a critical part of a successful commercialization strategy. Health Technology Assessment (or HTA) is an evaluation process that provides payers with recommendations on when, and at what price, a technology should be made available to a given patient population.

This webinar will provide an overview of HTA, including explanations of key concepts like economic evaluation, cost-effectiveness analysis, incremental cost-effectiveness ratios and quality-adjusted life years.

Following the webinar, participants will be able to explain how and why health systems use HTA, describe the assumptions and evidence necessary to quantify the value-for-money of a new health technology, and define a set of key HTA concepts.
