How to get reimbursement for your healthcare innovations

“Will my device or therapy get reimbursed?” has become critical, even for early development stage life sciences companies. From early investment rounds, investors want assurance of a return on their investment, and while they may not expect start-up companies to have all the reimbursement answers, they do expect companies to have identified the correct reimbursement questions. Also patients play a critical role in decision-making as they weigh their out-of-pocket costs; they want to know if their insurance will cover and pay for treatments. This expert class will focus on why and how it is important to create an implementable business strategy that highlights and incorporates obtaining reimbursement and/or defining the value proposition for a product so it can be successfully commercialized in the ever-changing healthcare environment. The reimbursement system in the Netherlands and Europe will be addressed.

The expert class program is set up in an interactive way such that the participants have also the possibility to bring their own questions and discuss issues they encounter in their own (start-up) company. The experts will give you feedback on your questions.
