Know your Place - where will power really sit in the new NHS - with Dr Steven Michael OBE
What will a ‘Place’ look like? What will this new layer of the NHS mean in practice and what decision-making powers will Place leaders have? As the NHS starts its journey towards an integrated future, Dr Steven Michael OBE (Chair of East Cheshire Partnership) joins Tom Clarke (Director, Mtech Access) to talk ‘Place’, ‘Partnership’, ’Collaboratives’ and more.The UK Government’s Health and Care White Paper, along with other recent policy announcements, set out a major proposed reorganisation of the NHS in England.

There is still much uncertainty, even within the NHS, about what this term and others like ‘Collaborative’ will mean in practice. In this episode, Tom and Steven discuss what these new structures mean, how they may affect the patient experience, how they will impact decision-making and what they could mean for pharmaceutical and medtech market access. Dr Steven Michael OBE has over 20 years of experience in the NHS. He began his career as a registered nurse working in psychiatric intensive care in 1985, before rising through various management and leadership roles to be CEO of a South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS FT between 2007 and 2016.

Health Economic Modelling for MedTech Innovation - What, Why and How
Are you looking to launch a new medical technology, medical or diagnostic device in the UK, Europe or North America? Would you like to know how health economic modelling could support your market access journey? In this episode, converted from a recent live webinar, Calum Jones (Consultant Health Economist) and Nick Swart (Senior Health Economist) discuss what, why and how health economic models can support MedTech innovations to demonstrate value, achieve market access and reach more patients.Health economic modelling is becoming a key component of the MedTech market access journey. There is increasing need in many countries to demonstrate economic evidence for new technologies, with many health technology assessment (HTA) bodies now requiring economic models before offering guidance for reimbursement, such as NICE’s Medical Technology Evaluation Programme (MTEP). MedTech firms are also recognising that a cost effectiveness model can also offer robust evidence of interventional value to support discussions with payers and other healthcare stakeholders.In this episode, Calum and Nick share their complementary perspectives and experiences of helping MedTech companies achieve market access.Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of Calum and Nick's slides or to find out more about how Mtech Access can support your market access journey.Learn more about our Health Economics services here: https://mtechaccess.co.uk/health-economics/ Learn more about our work with Medtech companies here: https://mtechaccess.co.uk/medtech-market-access/
