ValueMAxess Ltd

Our services are focused on the German market, but in the last years we have also carried out market access projects in France, the UK, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Scandinavia and Spain with our partner agencies.

We accompany international companies through the entire AMNOG process - from strategic advice on the design of clinical trials, preparation and implementation of G-BA consultation meetings, project management for dossier preparation, price negotiations with the GKV Spitzenverband as well as arbitration proceedings.

We have been able to gather extensive expertise in this area and have also successfully supported companies that did not have a branch office in Germany.

Training

Almost every day, pharmaceutical sales reps are facing questions on health policy topics asked by doctors. This includes information on the reimbursement of a product, effects on doctors` drug budget and possible consequences when prescribing a high-priced treatment. Who of the sales force has not heard from physicians : "I can't prescribe your product my drug budget won't allow it and I possibly get a “regress"?

ValueMAxess offers customised training and workshops to support field services as a competent partner in these questions as well. The training courses are modular structured and can also be conducted virtually in order to take up as little working time as possible in the field. They can also be made available as a digital and interactive version for iPads or as an app, e.g. to make good use of waiting times at the doctor's office.

Examples:

−   History and development of the German health care system from its introduction until today
−   KV systems in Germany (basic and advanced course)
−   Prescribing hurdles and “regress” - what is the real risk for doctors?
−   Rebate contracts with health insurance companies


Likewise, ValueMAxess offers a wide range of training courses in English on AMNOG (examples):

−   The AMNOG Process (Basic)
−   The AMNOG Process (Advanced)
−   Price negotiation with GKV Spitzenverband
−   The arbitration procedure


We are happy to discuss special needs for the client!

Market Access Marketing

To ensure that your sales force can concentrate 100% on the product message and does not lose additional scarce consultation time with the doctor and health politics discussions, we support companies in the development and production of customised information materials for doctors (print or in electronic form). These can be prepared for specific products or indications.

The content of our materials are checked for accuracy by external experts from health insurance funds, medical associations or physician associations (KV).

Examples

−   Prescription without risk (product specific per KV)
−   Impact on AMNOG in everyday medical practice (e.g. are products without additional benefit reimbursed?)
−   Prescribing outside the drug budget (Praxisbesonderheiten) – What needs to be considered (KV specific)?

Market Access Communication

Decisions within the framework of benefit assessments or price negotiations for new preparations require specific communication. This should not be left to third parties, because there are many unanswered questions in this area in particular - among internal and external stakeholders, but also within the medical profession itself. For example, the opinion still prevails that preparations without additional benefits are excluded from prescription and reimbursement. We support you in designing customised communication via a wide variety of channels, including specialised external services.
