Boston Healthcare Senior Vice President speaking at the World Orphan Drug Congress
Attendees will gain insight into the unique environment for commercialization of therapies for orphan diseases

BOSTON, 26 April 2018 – Boston Healthcare Associates, Inc. (Boston Healthcare), a global life sciences consulting firm today announced that Thomas F. Goss Pharm.D., Senior Vice President of Boston Healthcare, is presenting at the 8th Annual World Orphan Drug Congress.

The Congress is taking place at the Gaylord National Harbor Hotel, Oxon Hill, MD, with Dr. Goss presenting on Thursday, April 26 at 12.40 p.m. in the Global Market Access track.

Informed by clinical and economic evidence, Goss’ presentation on Market Access Challenges and Opportunities for Orphan and Ultra-Orphan Disease Therapies will provide insight into the:

  • global demand for an evidence-based approach toward market access for orphan disease therapies,
  • current landscape on development practices,
  • tools to overcome gaps in data to document the cost and burden of orphan diseases, and
  • strengths and limitations of available methods of data capture.

“Our attendance and sponsorship of the World Orphan Drug Congress underscores our commitment to solving key challenges associated with supporting patient access to important orphan disease therapies where significant unmet medical need remains,” said Goss. “To achieve success, it is critical that innovators address evidence requirements to document clinical and economic value and improve patient outcomes.”

With more than 20 years of experience examining regulations and the impact of public and private Payor policy on patient access, Goss has equipped both emerging and established pharmaceutical and medical device companies with the strategic and tactical guidance needed to solve complex problems and implement successful commercialization strategies across their product portfolios.

Goss also has more than 50 peer-reviewed publications in the areas of health economic evaluations (cost-effectiveness and budget impact analysis) for multiple markets including the U.S., EU-5, and Japan, and disease management and patient outcomes data.

Boston Healthcare representatives will be available at booth 405 for inquiries on our global capabilities.

Please contact Kylie Ullmann to schedule a meeting or interview with Dr. Goss.
