Increasingly, scientific advances are delivering new medicines that deliver improved survival and quality of life across multiple treatment indications. Indication-Based Pricing (IBP) has been proposed as a way to better link price with value. In this short Discussion Paper, we outline the major issues including the potential benefits of IBP, potential draw-backs, and considerations for implementation. We then ask for your views.

The measurement of quality of life in the context of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is challenging. This is because the disease is experienced by children and is rare, which makes data collection difficult. This Briefing reports on a symposium that outlined some lessons that can be learnt from the SMA context that might be more widely applicable.
This report provides a detailed summary of a panel discussion held at the HTAi 2017 annual meeting in Rome on the current approaches to MIP in Europe, the perceived challenges, and how they could be tackled in the future.
This is OHE’s report to the Charity Commission for England and Wales for the year 2017, OHE’s first since becoming a registered charity in December 2016.

This OHE Briefing outlines the NHS ownership debate through the lens of economics. The aim of the Briefing is to improve understanding of how economics can or cannot help to resolve the question of whether the private ownership of health care provision is good or bad. The economics literature that informs this overview includes: the theory of the organisation of production; theories of behaviour and motivation and the role of incentives and payments in influencing decisions.
