In this webinar organized by the RWE4Decisions multi-stakeholder initiative, consideration will be given to methodological recommendations on generation and use of real-world evidence (RWE) in pricing and reimbursement decision-making with a view to identifying what steps need to be taken to align on the way forwards. Guidance can act as a roadmap to generate high-quality RWE, to enable researchers and manufacturers to have a clear understanding of how it will be evaluated and for decision-makers to assess the completeness of their own RWE guidance.
After opening presentations about existing methodological guidance and new initiatives, our panel of national decision-makers will consider the opportunities for collaboration to accelerate progress towards the generation of comprehensive guidance for RWE quality and transparency in HTA/Payer pricing and reimbursement decisions.
A discussion co-moderated by Diane Kleinermans, President of the Commission of Drugs Reimbursement, National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (INAMI-RIZIV) and Karen Facey, Consultant to RWE4Decisions.
