A Few End of Year Thoughts
It seems like I was writing to you yesterday during the heat of the summer, and now winter is here! For many of us, snow has already fallen, reminding us that the year is coming to a close.
As you work on closing out 2019 and meeting your business goals, I wanted to share a few final resources with you that hopefully help to inform your planning for 2020 and remind you that we are here to partner with you. Our staff continues to publish impressive pieces, from research on modeling to commentaries in the Wall Street Journal, and our team continues to be on the cutting edge. We are here to support your work, whether it be responding to ICER, running a microsimulation, or quantifying the value of gene and cell therapies.
This end of year newsletter is packed with resources for you as you go into 2020. We’ve hosted 2 webinars this quarter, one on top trending topics in HEOR/market access and one on the value of gene and cell therapies. We’ve also provided you with the latest Precision white paper on the challenges of gene and cell therapy approval and commercialization.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to talk to me or any of our HEOR team members about your priorities for 2020. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!
