Health economics / Health outcomes

Health Economics, Health Outcomes, and Market Access are extremely important departments that are growing rapidly as their influence on businesses continues to grow. Within these departments you will find people doing economic evaluations, observational studies, strategic planning, pricing, reimbursement assessments and submission preparation to pricing bodies, to name but a few.

The work done in these departments can shape how a drug is sold, for what price and in which markets so these professionals require not only attention to detail but also diplomacy, great communication skills and an ability to see the bigger picture.

Many pharmaceutical companies are growing their own Health Economics, Outcome and Market Access functions, however, there is also a growing number of consultancies specialising in these areas too that offer variety and a challenging environment.
