Partnering with Patients on Value, Coverage, and Reimbursement

Published: September 2015

On June 11, 2015, FasterCures hosted a workshop, “Partnering with Patients on Value, Coverage, and Reimbursement,” which brought together over 100 patients, payers, biopharmaceutical companies, foundations, and providers to facilitate greater understanding of one another’s needs and perspectives, and foster more effective partnerships. Part of FasterCures’ emerging Science of Patient Input initiative—aimed at expanding opportunities for patient perspectives to influence the discovery, development, and delivery of new therapies—the workshop explored themes such as paying for value and looking beyond regulatory evidence.
