OHE and Vifor Pharma present a poster at the last European Conference on Rare Diseases (ECRD) on the Mechanism of Coordinated Access to orphan medicinal products (MoCA) where evidence on avacopan for ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) was discussed using the Transparent Value Framework.
In a new paper led by OHE, an international team of co-authors considers the evidence for supply-side cost-effectiveness thresholds, providing a set of recommendations for policymakers. In this blog post, Chris Sampson provides an overview of the findings and key messages.
Faster regulatory approval has not necessarily achieved faster patient access. A new OHE paper sets out how risk-sharing can tackle this, enabling resolution of differences of view between innovators and payers about a technology’s value.

Innovators need to fund the research in order to align incentives.
