Seek advice from HTA bodies for your clinical development program

Early dialogue/scientific advice from health technology assessment bodies (HTABs) is an opportunity to increase the probability of obtaining timely reimbursement at the target price in the appropriate patient population by generating the appropriate evidence. It is recommended to seek HTA advice prior to initiation of Phase III or pivotal trials and for real world evidence (RWE) generation.

The need for better alignment between evidence generation strategy and HTABs’ requirements calls for early engagement

Why should early advice from HTA bodies be considered?

Compared with regulatory agencies, HTA bodies have different mandates and methodologies and are focused on understanding the value and consequences of making a new treatment available, including how it will perform in the real world, its economics, and impact within the local organizational and social context. Early HTA engagement has become a vital part of market access strategy and planning.
