Boston Healthcare supports the development of market access strategies and their ultimate implementation. We accomplish this globally through support from an international network of country-based experts. All of our network members have on the ground core expertise in reimbursement planning and implementation, pricing, health economics, and health care systems and stakeholders.

This expertise enables us to provide country-based support in order to drive policy, payment, and market access. In addition to our own global locations, we have access to affiliates in over 20 countries and are able to provide expert coverage in these territories and other territories worldwide. Together, we have completed hundreds of projects in global pricing and reimbursement planning for innovative healthcare companies.

Overview:

Emerging politico-economic and industry forces have created a new status quo in the drug, diagnostics, and medical devices industries. In Europe, stakeholders aim to strike a balance between controlling health care spending and offering greater access to medical innovations. Manufacturers face new barriers to enter the European markets, such as evidentiary requirements for demonstrating comparative efficacy and cost-effectiveness, complex price negotiations, and innovative contractual access agreements, as well as understanding how funding decision-making can occur at national, regional, or local levels – all essential dynamics that must be evaluated in order to ensure market access success.

With our European headquarters in Berlin, Germany, Boston Healthcare is able to provide actionable strategies and in-depth analysis through a team of in-country experts that gather on-the-ground insight from all the major markets in Europe. We will help you navigate the challenges and opportunities associated with a continually evolving health care market, as well as how understanding these changing market dynamics affect your business development and commercial decisions and are essential to achieving optimal ROI.
