MAP has started a series of podcasts exploring the evolving market access processes and latest updates on MAP Online, created with the vision to revolutionise the way market access information is provided.
December 2018 newsletter podcast
In the final podcast of 2018, we discussed the reformed Voluntary Scheme and Statutory Scheme for pharmaceutical pricing in the UK (replacing PPRS and the Statutory Regulations). We also discussed NICE proposing to charge for health technology appraisals from April, and pointed users to a refresh of our content on the Accelerated Access Collaborative.
November 2018 newsletter podcast
This edition of the podcast recapped a successful conference season for MAP. We held our own Patient Access Europe event in Brussels, and sent a large delegation to ISPOR Europe in Barcelona. We presented a number of posters there, showcasing our research capabilities. We discussed what’s known so far about the new iteration of PPRS and talked through other big news stories, and we covered the launch of our revamped CE-marking pages on our MedTech site. Our ATMP and Biosimilars pages have also been updated.
October 2018 newsletter podcast
In October we first remind our listeners of the upcoming MAP Conference. We then discuss how we have been developing MAP online content regarding early access schemes in European countries and adding updates on the UK Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) page. The podcast continues with a round up of the news stories regarding Brexit and the reduction in numbers of both UK-based clinical trials and patents being filed for point-of-care medtech devices. Finally, a reminder was given of what MAP Online does for our members.
September 2018 newsletter podcast
In September we updated our listeners on pricing, with our consultation response to the Statutory Regulations scheme proposals. We also discusses PRIME, the EMA’s early access scheme, and changes to our pages on Highly Specialised Technology appraisals in NICE.
