Building on the learnings from the NICE and NHS England pilot with a subscription-style approach to purchasing and evaluating antibiotics.
Antibiotics are the foundation of medicine, but growing antibiotic resistance and a lack of new antibiotics being developed pose a significant threat to society.
Antibiotics are the foundation of medicine, but growing antibiotic resistance poses a significant threat to society. The antibiotics market is broken because companies do not see a return of investment in antibiotics. As a result, there is underinvestment in antibiotic development; no new classes of antibiotics have been discovered since the 1980s and many companies have moved out of the space entirely.
NICE and NHS England took an important first step towards fixing the broken antibiotics market by piloting a Netflix-style model for the evaluation and purchase of antimicrobials. The model, a form of pull-incentive for antibiotics, could increase returns for companies developing antibiotics and stimulate investment in new antibiotics if adopted by enough other countries. The learnings from this pilot are manifold and will shape the future of antimicrobial purchasing and assessment in England and beyond for years to come.
In this webinar, OHE’s Lotte Steuten was joined by Nick Crabb (NICE), David Glover (NHS England) and Jason Gordon (HEOR Consulting) to discuss their experience with evaluation and purchasing of antimicrobials and how to build on the learnings from the NICE NHS England AMR pilot:
How much should the UK pay for new antibiotics?
How should we value new antibiotics?
What does the future look like for antibiotic purchasing and evaluation across the world?
