Lena Chaihorsky discusses how to align incentives and develop tests that payers want to pay for. Check out the Video HERE
Our VP of Payer Innovation Lena Chairhorsky spoke on a panel discussing reimbursement models for gene and cell therapies, and how diagnostics could be instrumental in proving their value and creating a sustainable model that allows developers and patients to be successful. Full agenda HERE
The pandemic has made everyone realize the importance of diagnostics in healthcare, but 8 months into the pandemic, we still lack the diagnostics we need to best manage Covid-19. How can we incentivize the development of the diagnostics we need to find disease, determine risk, and assess immunity? What are the regulatory barriers, and how can they be overcome? Who pays for these tests? What can we learn from Covid-19 for the next pandemic?
Diagnostic tests can be well validated, accepted in guidelines, and even reimbursed, yet they still don’t impact patient care. Why? Improper use, lack of physician understanding & support, lack of inclusion in coverage policies, inability to track all contribute to losing the potential impact of critical diagnostic tools. Software that highlights & streamlines decision making and provides information at the point of care allows for more efficient precision delivery of these tools.
Precision Medicine usually connotes use of diagnostics and other tools to optimize care in oncology, but really we should be considering development and use of these tools in every disease area. We will discuss the challenges around development and commercialization of Precision Medicine diagnostics for use in stroke and autoimmune diseases.
