First webinar – “Market access revolution; stakeholder devolution? The changing face of the UK healthcare scene” – 25 September 2012 3pm UTC, 4pm CET, 10am EST, 11pm SGT
New York, 13 September 2012 — Kantar Health has partnered with Sudler & Hennessey and All Global to launch a new webinar series that will cover market access trends in key European countries from a stakeholder perspective, the implications of these trends, and how they relate to healthcare changes in other parts of the world. The first webinar in the series, “Market access revolution; stakeholder devolution? The changing face of the UK healthcare scene” will take place on Tuesday September 25 and feature a panel of Bayer Healthcare’s Philip Ashman, Sue Kilby a leading UK payer, Kantar Health’s Mark Sales and Nick May from Sudler & Hennessey.
Chaired by David Fisher, managing director of the PMGroup, the webinar will be of particular interest to those who want to gain a better understanding of the UK healthcare dynamic, the key players and trends moving forward. It will look at how countries like the UK can learn from countries like Germany and the US which have already found ways to deal effectively with radical change.
Last year, Kantar Health surveyed UK payers on who they thought were the key influencers in the UK market access process and who ideally should be the decision makers. The data from the survey was used to create this infographic During the first webinar, a short poll will be run to update the data in the infographic. An ongoing forum for stakeholders who have a role in the European healthcare scene will also be launched on Kantar Health’s website.
Register now for the September 25 webinar. Further webinars in the three-part series will be announced in the coming months.
