4 Market Access Assumptions Misleading Biotechs

Biotechnology companies often do not have the market access resources comparable to large pharma. While this can pose a challenge, there is a considerable opportunity for biotechs to reduce this disadvantage by using health technology assessment (HTA) data in innovative ways to inform and drive their market access decision-making.

With our innovative technology platform and focus on data quality, we have been helping biotech companies understand the market access space for bellwether HTA agencies for the past seven years. Throughout our experience with biotechnology companies, we continually see four assumptions about the HTA process and market access:

Regulatory Restrictions on Biologic Rheumatoid Arthritis Drugs

A drug’s market share is dependent on several external factors, one of which is the drug’s health technology assessment (HTA). We analyzed HTA decisions from NICE, HAS, IQWiG, HIS, and SMC for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) drugs, specifically examining the subpopulations established by the HTA agencies through restrictions against the European label, and noting whether these restrictions changed over time.
