ISPOR Europe 2019

The great promise of biosimilars is their ability to provide high-quality treatment at a reduced cost, thereby producing cost savings that can be reapplied. But how are healthcare systems around the globe utilizing those cost savings? During the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research 2019 meeting, held this week in Copenhagen, Denmark, several teams of researchers reported on how biosimilars are impacting international markets, and how they could provide headroom for new, expensive treatments.
France has experimented with financial incentives to reward the prescribing of biosimilars. These incentive structures include shared savings for centers that acquire medicines at lower costs, as well as biosimilar prescribing targets.
During the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research 2019 meeting being held in Copenhagen, Denmark, 3 teams of researchers presented findings that show that, despite the fact that Europe’s biosimilars market is far more mature than that of the United States, the region still sees setbacks from stakeholder perceptions of biosimilars and from policies that do not adequately incentivize biosimilar use.
The International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research is holding its Europe 2019 meeting this week in Copenhagen, Denmark, and the savings that biosimilars can afford European healthcare systems are a hot topic at this year’s event. Two studies presented on Monday explored how Amgen’s biosimilar bevacizumab (Mvasi) and biosimilar trastuzumab (Kanjinti) could produce significant cost savings for hospitals in the Italian healthcare system.
