Precision Medicine: what will it cost?
Among the greatest bottlenecks for the widespread implementation of precision medicine is the growing costs of the associated technologies. It also brings new challenges for health technology assessment, with cost-utility becoming more difficult to evaluate and predict at finer levels of patient stratification. What are these challenges? How could we address them? How might we go about refining precision medicine strategies to maximize cost utility?
The webinar will cover:
- The current health technology assessment stance on precision medicine applications
- What we know and what we don’t know about the cost-utility of new precision medicine approaches against the standard of care
- How costs may evolve with emerging technologies or trends
- Priorities for future health economics research in this area
