Consulting Report
January 2017

PhRMA commissioned OHE Consulting to explore options and recommend methods that could help middle-income countries efficiently and effectively identify medicines for formulary inclusion.

This report presents a framework for developing medicines formularies which combines macro-level decision making factors (focusing on the health system organisation and its priority setting), and micro-level factors (looking at intervention-specific effects) to determine the overall value of medicines.

Research Paper
December 2016

This Research Paper explores decisions by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) that new technologies are to be recommended in line with clinical practice (RiLCP). The authors qualitatively assess documentation associated with RiLCP decisions to create a framework to describe common themes, and assess the level of patient access associated with each RiLCP decision.

Research Paper
November 2016

The quality of decision-making in key public sector bodies dealing with resource allocation is a major determinant of their efficiency. One of the most difficult and contentious areas of decision-making is the way that uncertainty is dealt with.

Consulting Report

Research Paper
December 2015

This paper presents a model to capture the behaviour of health sector decision makers when making resource allocation decisions on the level and mix of healthcare production, while taking into consideration the maximum expenditure (budget) allowed by the government or the health system regulator.

The paper seeks to address two perennial policy and practical discussions in the UK National Health Service (NHS) (and elsewhere): how to cope with financial austerity; and the opportunity costs of reimbursing new health technologies.
