Here is a guide to your Brexit-related future by Brexit Keynote Speaker Patrick Dixon

Future of Pharma Reimbursement and Health Care Trends, Treatment Access and Funding Approval - why health care rationing will dominate pharma funding - impact on patients and pharma profits

Notes on pharma trends keynote. In the past, the major challenge for a pharma company was to develop a new therapy, prove impact in clinical trials, show safety, and get licience approval to enable the product to be sold commercially.  Typically the process could take up to 15 years, and cost up to $1.2 billion, which all had to be recouped in 10 years of sales before the patent ran out.  But today there is a massive additional hurdle which is persuading cash-strapped governments and insurers to fund a new therapy for patients.  It is no longer enough to prove the therapy works, saves lives, has less side effects and so on.  The pharma company has to make the case that the therapy offers good value for money compared to other treatments for the same condition. Need a world-class pharma keynote speaker for your event?
