First Week: Economics in Health Care
The first week of our program will introduce you to today’s global health challenges and economic principles. You will broaden your knowledge by attending courses in the fields of innovation, health economics, and market access.
One of the first steps for every business is the idea behind it. Nevertheless, not every idea is suitable for transforming it into a service or product, let alone the chance of transforming it into actual profit for a future or already existing business.
You will learn about different techniques and processes to develop ideas for new products and services. You will also gain knowledge to exploit these ideas in order to make the most out of it.
After successful research and development phases, the next step is market access and convincing insurance companies of your therapy’s cost-effectiveness in order to achieve a favorable reimbursement agreement. Therefore, you get the chance to learn about the specific features of Health Goods, Methods of Evaluation and reasons for Market Failure. The suitability of various regulatory approaches for countries with different economic and epidemiologic conditions will be discussed as well.
