About

Build your understanding of markets, pricing and customers needed for new product development in the health technology industry.

Overview

You’ll gain an understanding of health technology markets, pricing and customers needed for new product development in the health technology industry. If you’re already working or aspire to work in the field of health technology assessment, this health technology course will give you the training you need to progress your health technology career or gain a post as a health technology evaluator or commissioner.

The aims of the course are to:

  • Provide participants from health technology providers and assessors with a critical understanding of the entire process of health technology assessment, pricing and reimbursement worldwide.
  • Provide real knowledge and skills in the health technology principles, techniques and real-world application of developing value propositions, trial design and analysis, systematic review and synthesis of evidence, economic evaluation including patient reported outcomes, and cost-effectiveness modelling in health technology assessment.
  • Equip health technology graduates with professional-level competency in the design, commissioning, and review of health technology assessments in multiple jurisdictions (globally), and enable them to contribute a health technology assessment perspective in multi-disciplinary contexts such as product development planning, prioritisation of research and government or international health policy planning.
