Upcoming Webinar to Examine Oncology in the Era of Value Frameworks: Perspectives From Payers and Oncologists & Implications for Product Planning

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 25, 2015) - Breakthrough advances in oncology have produced a multitude of new treatment options, often with substantial clinical gains attached to significantly higher pricing. This rapidly evolving treatment landscape has ushered in attempts to quantify and compare the incremental value of new products, such as the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Conceptual Framework to Assess the Value of Cancer Treatment Options. Manufacturers of oncology drugs must be prepared to present new and existing oncology products within the context of these frameworks, ensuring that the value of products is appropriately and fully characterized.

Join featured speakers, Douglas Neely, Senior Director at Xcenda, and Lisa Bloudek, Assistant Director at Xcenda, as they discuss how these frameworks are currently perceived through sharing of comprehensive survey data from oncologists and payers. Additionally, the speakers will share strategies on how these frameworks can be leveraged by manufacturers to demonstrate product value, with a focus on the ASCO framework.

Key takeaway points:

  • Gain insights from oncologists and payers on the impact of value frameworks
  • Understand how oncologists and payers interpret the frameworks, including strengths and areas for improvement
  • Learn how oncology products will measure up under these frameworks, with implications for data generation in clinical trials and beyond

The live broadcast takes place on Thursday, December 10, 2015 at 1pm EST. For more information or to register for this free webinar visit: Oncology in the Era of Value Frameworks: Perspectives from Payers and Oncologists & Implications for Product Planning.
