Health Economics

George Clinical’s Health Economics team provide an expert, bespoke, service to medical device and pharmaceutical companies who are increasingly expected to provide comprehensive evidence regarding the economic benefit of their product, not just efficacy and safety data.

As the levels of chronic illness increase globally and the technologies available for treatment become increasingly expensive, significant challenges emerge when addressing the economic burden of such illnesses.  Programs to prevent, treat and provide long-term management of chronic disease often have profound economic implications for health sector budgets; as well as for individuals and households. Those who produce pharmaceutical and medical device products are also expected to show evidence of economic benefit, not just efficacy and safety data. This inevitably creates an imperative globally for the use of sound economic evidence to inform investment of scarce health sector resources.
