Regulatory Interactions and Conditional Coverage

Regulatory interactions & conditional coverage / Access with evidence development

This Interest Group will focus on the changing dynamics around evidence development that are leading to greater interaction with regulatory stakeholders as well as the increasing interest in mechanisms that involve conditionality of access relating specifically to evidentiary development.

The scope of this Interest Group includes:

  • Adaptive pathways
  • Early dialogue / scientific advice involving both regulators and HTA bodies
  • HTA-Regulatory Interactions relating to evidence development
  • Managed entry agreements (focussed on outcomes-based agreements)
    • Performance-linked Risk Sharing Agreements (PBRSAs)
    • Coverage with evidence development (CED)
    • Conditional treatment continuation (CTC)
  • Post-marketing additional data collection

RICC Repository

This interest group provides a regularly updated repository for the benefit of our members and the wider community. This repository contains a bibliography of peer-reviewed publications relating to HTA-Regulatory Interaction and also Conditional Coverage. In addition, there is a list of governmental and non-governmental initiatives relating to new HTA-Regulatory Interactions, such as emerging parallel scientific advice initiatives.
