What we do
We have a proven track record in assisting partners with a wide range of HEOR-related projects, from submission-relevant projects to innovative out-of-the-box ideas. Take a look at all the project types we cover to understand more about our mission to contribute to sustainable, cost-effective healthcare using evidence-based research in order to guide decision-making in the public and private healthcare sectors.
In a setting of growing scientific literature and a fast-moving industry, we understand the need to synthesize data. We generate new insights and summarize key clinical and economic evidence by performing detailed and thorough systematic literature reviews. We also perform custom-made targeted literature reviews to uncover market opportunities and find answers to critical clinical and economic questions. We understand the need of our customers to synthesize and compare clinical data in support of HTA submissions. We excel in performing several types of meta-analyses, from the pairwise comparison to network meta-analyses (NMAs) and matching adjusted indirect comparisons (MAICs). We support you in choosing the analysis suitable for the research question in order to draw clear and insightful conclusions that will inform decision-makers and patients.
We truly excel in developing core models for reimbursement purposes, or simpler models for internal discussions. We have built, adapted or reviewed numerous economic models for many different countries, and continue to broaden our horizons. Over the years, our team has modelled a variety of diseases, all requiring different modelling approaches, from prevention to chronic diseases, cell- and gene therapies, vaccines, and many types of cancer. Our understanding of various methods makes us a valuable partner. Specialists can draft model specification documents, and drive internal discussions, or external discussions with key opinion leaders. In addition, we have an extensive track record in network meta-analyses, matching-adjusted indirect comparisons, patient-level data analyses and survival analyses. We are happy to explain and train stakeholders in modelling, from die-hard health economists to less technical colleagues.
Out-of-the-box thinking can bring a fresh perspective, which is incredibly important in the world of healthcare innovation. With the bright academics at Asc, we have developed numerous projects that started as less-than-straightforward, yet have led to the discovery of entirely new angles on old discussions. We have experience with various databases, and we meticulously look into the past to hypothesize about future trends. Our specialists frequently find valuable information by reviewing previous reimbursements for analogue analyses. We can suggest real-world evidence-generation studies by identifying information gaps in international literature. We have developed projects that led to valuable manuscripts, and are always happy to brainstorm about the complex healthcare issues that private and public healthcare organizations struggle with.
Market access strategy
Our team has experience in advising companies on the optimal market access strategy. We assist companies in market access trajectories by developing reimbursement dossiers in line with European and international HTA guidelines. We support our clients with tailor-made advice on reimbursement paths for new technologies in a fast-changing and complex setting of reimbursement policy. Our consultants are experts in providing extensive and comprehensive market access scans to guarantee optimal market access to new products in any therapeutic area. We ensure an exhaustive and positive experience by proving friendly and responsive customer service and by involving experienced partners and clinical experts in our decisions.
Workshops and training
We love to share our skills and expertise. Through our training, we share our unique set of skills, knowledge and passion for health economics and market access. We offer project training and readout sessions for teams with all kinds of backgrounds. We also offer customized courses that can be a powerful tool to best communicate key concepts in the field of health economics as well as to successfully convey the value of your product. In addition, we share our competences and passion by outsourcing our skilled consultants.
Navigating the complex healthcare industry, you might need assistance with something else. No problem, we’re always happy to help! We provide outsourcing if your team needs temporary solutions. Through our long-standing collaboration with various educational sectors at the University of Groningen, we can be the bridge between healthcare organizations and interns looking for their first job or internship. Do you need training or workshops, or are you perhaps thinking about getting your PhD while working in your industry? We might be able to help!
