OHE Lunchtime Seminar with Dr. Aslam Anis, The University of British Columbia. The seminar will discuss the impact of the pan-Canadian Pharmaceutical Alliance “tiered pricing” framework (a flexible 'price-cap' regulation) on generic entry, the resulting drug expenditure levels from a drug plans’ perspective and the implications of price-capping policies on drug shortages.
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. It demonstrates some of the ways in which OHE has met its charitable objects: namely, to advance the education of the public in general/health care payers/policy makers on the subject of health economics and health care policy.
This OHE publication by Nick Timmins, a senior fellow at the Institute for Government and the Kings Fund, sets out arguments in favour and against. It is based on the seminar he gave at OHE in July 2018.
OHE’s Director Adrian Towse, and Lou Garrison, OHE Senior Visiting Fellow and Emeritus Professor at the University of Washington School of Pharmacy, are joint recipients of the first prize of the 2018 Value Assessment Challenge Awards designed to encourage innovative approaches in defining and measuring value in health care.
OHE wishes to recruit two well-qualified, highly motivated and energetic economists, with particular strengths in the economics of health technology assessment, health care systems and/or the life sciences industry. Applications must be received by Monday 12th November 2018.
