The Economics of Precision Medicine: 

How Personalizing Treatment can Bend the Cost Curve by 

Improving the Value Delivered by Healthcare Innovations

In a world where it is clear that healthcare costs must be contained, how can we afford to pay for innovation? This webinar will explore how personalizing treatment can offer an escape from the innovation-cost conundrum. By simultaneously increasing clinical development efficiency and the treatment effectiveness, targeting clinical innovations to the patients most likely to benefit can improve healthcare value per dollar spent while maintaining the ROI levels needed to support investment in innovation. We believe precision medicine should play a more prominent role in the cost containment discussion of healthcare reform.

By attending this Webinar, you will learn how to:

Help clients develop product development and commercialization strategies that get leverage from the benefits of precision medicine 

Support positioning of innovations as part of the healthcare solution, not the problem 

Understand and communicate the value proposition of precision medicine for payers, government decision makers, and legislators
