What drives the differences in value conclusions? A health-economic case study on cardiovascular outcome data

In the US there is an increasing interest in value and cost effectiveness. However, it is not uncommon for different researchers to make contrary conclusions on the value of a product. While there are multiple assumptions that could potentially impact the value assessment, two key drivers will be identified and discussed in the context of cardiovascular disease. In addition, with the recent release of the first cardiovascular outcome on a PCSK9 inhibitor at ACC, those concepts will be illustrated via a case study. Overall, the workshop aims to foster a better understanding of cost effectiveness analyses and assist formulary, coverage and reimbursement decision makers in critical evaluation of a product's value.

This workshop is intended for formulary, coverage and reimbursement decision makers only.

Real-world Insights & Economic Considerations in Type 2 Diabetes: The Challenge of Sustaining Glycemic Control & Medication Adherence Over Time
Large claims databases offer a unique opportunity to examine year-to-year trends in diabetes population management. Intarcia Therapeutics, Inc., sponsored a study conducted by Milliman, a well-known source of actuarial expertise to the healthcare industry, to develop a white paper titled Real-world Insights & Economic Considerations in Type 2 Diabetes, which highlights the relationship between glycemic control and medication adherence.

Key topics of the discussion will include:
  •  Trends in HbA1c and diabetes drug adherence
  •  Challenge of sustaining glycemic control and diabetes drug adherence over time
  •  Association between healthcare costs and HbA1c levels
  •  Correlation between glycemic control and medication adherence, including drug therapy characteristics

In addition to the presentation by a Milliman consultant, an endocrinologist will discuss the challenges confronting clinicians in optimally managing a progressive chronic disease, such as type 2 diabetes, as well as the struggles patients face in adhering to their diabetes medication regimen.
