New service – paid consultation with MTRC Director, Dr Oleg Borisenko

MTRC offers a new service of paid hourly consultations by the Director, Dr Oleg Borisenko. Normally, MTRC works on a project basis with a fixed budget. However, the format of the project does not fit all our clients. Sometimes, instead of a project, a one-two-hour consultation can be sufficient to guide the company in the right direction in relation to European market access, evidence generation and other related topics. MTRC now offers the possibility of hourly paid consultations with Oleg Borisenko, one of the most knowledgeable experts in European Med Tech market access. Read about typical situations for such support and conditions in this post.

Opportunity to comment on the design of the upcoming Reimbursement/HTA decisions database from MTRC

MTRC is developing a novel digital product - Reimbursement and HTA Market Intelligence Database, which will allow access to the historical reimbursement/HTA decisions for individual technology groups (e.g. cardiovascular, robotic, IVD etc.), for individual countries, filtering decisions by type of decision (e.g. procedure coding, payment mechanisms, innovation funding etc.). There will be a small overlap between the upcoming database product and the existing Reimbursement and HTA Alerts newsletter; however, the database will offer much broader functionality and several additional benefits. We invite our existing and prospective clients to comment on the design of the upcoming solution.
