This webinar will focus on discussing how to ensure access for the right patient, to the right treatment, at the right time. We invited Max Newton, Engagement Manager at IQVIA as guest speaker. Max worked on the development of the FIFARMA "Patients Waiting to Access Innovative Therapies (WAIT) Indicator survey"; he also is leading a similar survey in Europe, the "EFPIA WAIT indicator". This project aims to improve our understanding of what are the factors that determine the availability of innovative therapies and patient access in eight Latin America countries. In this webinar Max will be able to comment on the indicator legacy and discuss top line findings.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand previous experiences to develop indicators to measure the time of availability and access to innovative therapies in other regions.
  • Explain the scope of the project promoted by FIFARMA to develop this indicator in Latin America and the methodology used.
  • Review the main results and share top line findings.

Presented in English with simultaneous interpretation in Spanish and Portuguese.
