Compliant engagement solutions to support HTA submissions
Learn how we engaged HCPs in different countries to address discrepancies in health technology assessment (HTA) submissions, facilitating positive appraisal opinions for our client’s high priority asset.
The healthcare challenge
Helping improve access to effective treatments for people living with HIV in the UK.
Our client wished to gain insights to support HTA submissions to the Scottish Medical Consortium and the All Wales Medicines Strategy Group by simultaneously engaging key external stakeholders in 2 countries.
We ran 2 Digital Advisory Boards (DABs) using medCrowd, the instant messenger for health and care, to gather insights.
We recruited 8 expert clinicians in 2 countries and formulated questions to address some discrepancies presented by the HTA submission prior to expert engagement.
We also split the DABs into geographical regions to organise conversations among both expert groups.
The DABs reached completion in record time, with all participants answering each question in its entirety. This meant our client was able to update the HTA submission and submit ahead of target deadline. Insights also fed into other strategic objectives in preparations for product launch. By using our medCrowd technology our client was able to significantly reduce costs and carbon emissions relative to conducting traditional advisory boards.
