A webinar is being organized by Global Whispers on 12th October at 1.00 pm (BST)/2.00 pm (CEST)/8.00 am (EDT). The session will be led by Clare Foy, Director of Global Market Access at Mtech Access, and Prof. Fabrizio Gianfrate, an Italian market access expert. The discussion will focus on the market access landscape in Italy, with a particular emphasis on changes at the Agenzia Italiana del Farmaco (AIFA).

In October, the Italian Medicines Agency, AIFA, is set to implement structural reforms. The Scientific Technical Advisory Committee (CTS) and the Price and Reimbursement Committee (CPR) will be consolidated into a single entity, the Scientific and Economic Commission (CSE). The main goal of these reforms is to streamline the reimbursement process, enhance efficiencies, and reduce delays. However, some critics have raised concerns about the decrease in committee members from 20 to just 10.

Prof. Fabrizio Gianfrate, an Italian HEOR expert and ex-payer, will explain the implications of these changes for market access in Italy. He will also discuss the broader challenges that Pharmaceutical and Medical Device companies may encounter during market launches in Italy. The webinar is set to cover topics such as the Italian market’s nature, the reimbursement process, pricing, market access considerations, and the impact of AIFA reforms on market access and managed entry agreements.

Prof. Fabrizio Gianfrate, the webinar’s speaker, is a renowned expert in the Italian market access landscape. He is currently a Full Professor of HEOR in Rome. He has previously served as a voting member of the Pricing and Reimbursement Committee at AIFA and a regional HTA and Formulary Committees member. His vast experience and insights make him a valuable contributor to the Global Whispers webinar series.

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions to Prof. Gianfrate during the session. The webinar is free and open to all market access, HEOR, strategic, and commercial teams in the Pharmaceutical, Medtech, and Diagnostics industries. Healthcare system representatives are also welcome.

The webinar is part of the Global Whispers series, which explores global market access trends and challenges facing the Pharmaceutical and Medtech industries. Previous webinars from the series are available on demand.

The webinar offers an invaluable opportunity for industry professionals to gain in-depth insights into the Italian market access landscape and the impacts of the upcoming AIFA reforms. Participants unable to attend the live session can still register to receive a recording of the webinar.
