Market Access and Reimbursement

Optimize Access and Adoption

Today, an expanded universe of stakeholders are defining and evaluating the value of medical interventions beyond the requirements for FDA approval. Payers and providers develop utilization management strategies, including clinical pathways, appropriate use criteria, and bundled payments, to deliver value to the marketplace. Manufacturers also address evolving definitions of value by integrating customer needs and working with guideline and measure developers to ensure health outcome goals are met. Avalere looks at this complex world of commercialization through a single, yet multi-dimensional lens. We draw from policy expertise, private and public payer perspectives, patient and provider requirements, as well as a multitude of other stakeholders to create one integrated market strategy. Specifically, Avalere uses The Payer Edge®, our proprietary network of payer decision makers to inform your coverage and access action plan. From launching new technologies to navigating access challenges for existing products, we help you secure reimbursement and access.
