About

Develop the technical skills to undertake cost-effectiveness modelling which are in high demand within the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

Overview

Develop the technical skills to undertake cost-effectiveness modelling which are in high demand within the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

The development and application of new health technology (pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products and devices used to diagnose, monitor or treat diseases or enhance health and well-being) is crucial to the future prosperity of both developed and developing nations. Health technology assessment (HTA), and the associated strategies for pricing technologies and obtaining reimbursement from purchasers, is a relatively new area of expertise.

From an industry perspective, the effective assessment, pricing and reimbursement techniques for health technology are critical to bringing a technology to market and thus to corporate success. From the perspective of those charged with governing health technology and reimbursing providers, evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of health technology is critical to equity and good governance of public monies.

The aims of this course are to:

  • Provide health technology participants from health technology providers and assessors with a critical understanding of the entire process of health technology assessment, pricing and reimbursement worldwide.
  • Equip health technology graduates with basic competency in the design of cost-effectiveness models in multiple jurisdictions.

The health technology course is taught part-time, online, over two years.

Teaching

The health technology course is a mixture of online learning and independent study. We use customised online rooms within our Virtual Learning Environment to deliver course materials in an accessible and engaging format, including live online webinars allowing interaction with course tutors and other students.
