[Event Report] Second Forum: The Introduction of Cost-Effectiveness Assessment, Its Impact, and Compatibility with Other Systems (September 13, 2018)

HGPI convened the Second Forum “The Introduction of Cost-Effectiveness Assessment, Its Impact, and Compatibility with Other Systems” on September 13, 2018.

Based on the issues raised at the preparatory meeting “Rebalancing Healthcare Systems: Innovation and Sustainability Series – Issues Identified from the Trial Introduction of Cost-Effectiveness Assessment” held on May 31, we identified three key themes (technical issues, issues for institutionalization, and public understanding) to be discussed in FY2018 and have been conducting a series of forums.

 

 

In this meeting, a roundtable discussion on HTA implementation was held with experts from industry, government, academia, and civil society. The discussions included policy functions required for the future implementation of Cost-Effectiveness Assessment, as well as its impact on the current healthcare and drug pricing systems. 

The next forum is scheduled as follows:

  • The Third Forum (November): Public Understanding 

        Increasing Public Awareness and Understanding on the Impacts and Benefits of Cost-Effectiveness Assessment  

 

Organizer: HGPI

Participants: Policymakers, representatives from the government, academia and private sectors
