Unleashing meaningful innovation through regulatory reformEPHA #A2MDialogues
19 October 2020
The first in a series of online discussions on key access to medicines (A2M) priorities bringing together thought leaders and policy-makers, academics, industry representatives and NGOs, for a frank discussion of European pharmaceutical policies.
Take part in our #A2MDialogues to share your questions and ideas and help us develop actionable #A2Msolutions for decision-makers in Europe.
What effect do the shortcomings of current assessment processes have on the quality of innovation?
How do we resolve the conundrum of high prices and high uncertainty?
Our panelists discussed how regulatory and payment systems could be adapted to incentivise the timely generation of quality comparative data on the benefits and harms of new drugs and high-risk devices both before and after their market entry, profiting patients, clinicians, and healthcare systems.

📉Better evidence, particularly from comparative RCTs, needed to enable confident decision-making in HTA and P&R! @iqwig @Anticancerfund @EPHA_EU #A2MDialogues— Anna Prokůpková (@AnnaProEU) October 19, 2020

🔬Companies are pursuing similar #research without sharing data. @EMA_News should encourage those developers to collaborate when providing scientific advice and include asking for HTA and payer relevant criteria! @EPHA_EU #A2MDialogues— Anna Prokůpková (@AnnaProEU) October 19, 2020
Very grateful I could participate to EPHA's first #A2MDialogues with Beate Wieseler @IQWiG, @HuseyinNaci2 and @And_Cipriani. I hope the regulator will take the HTA needs for comparative evidence into its Scientific Advice on short notice.#anticancerfund #cancerresearch@EPHA_EU pic.twitter.com/AYURbrm867— Lydie Meheus (@lydie_meheus) October 19, 2020
