Evidence-based value and access strategies

Solutions: Overview

The commercial success of an innovation will be determined not only by its clinical profile, but also its value to the individual, institution, or health system that will pay for the product or service. Compass offers a comprehensive menu of solutions for each phase of development, to optimize the price and reimbursement in US and global markets.

Compass’ recent projects reflect expertise in a broad range of therapeutic categories, territories, evolving care settings, and orphan diseases.

Our focus at Compass is on life science market access with broad therapeutic experience:

  • 53% involved due diligence or partnering, with pricing intelligence for partnering presentations and forecasts
  • 22% included an ex-US assessment
  • 25% involved products designated as orphans or assessing orphan status.

Compass has extensive US and EU experience in orphan diseases and understanding of the decision making for price and access. In 2012-2015, Compass delivered market access assessments and strategies for these orphan diseases; majority were US and EU assessments with payers and KOLs.
