Health Economics Educational Workshop

About the Health Economics Educational Workshop

23 November 2018 | 30 November 2018
Calgary, Alberta | Edmonton, Alberta

Learn how health economics and early stage technology assessment can support your research and development planning, raise capital, and help communicate your value proposition more clearly and effectively to payers.

This educational workshop, provided without charge to Alberta companies, was designed to support both early and late stage organizations in developing an understanding of when, where, and how health economics can be used to strengthen product and business planning, and satisfy requirements of purchasers of technology.

Early stage organizations will benefit by understanding how economic evaluation can determine the ‘innovation headroom’ available and the commercial viability of their technology, which can be used to guide R&D focus and support discussions with investors.

Later stage organizations will benefit by understanding how economic analysis serves to robustly document the value proposition of their technology to health systems, and therefore the preparation of a complete (clinical and economic) evidence package required to support procurement efforts.


This interactive, full day session was provided in Calgary and Edmonton. A case-based approach was used to highlight how those that pay for products make purchase decisions (in Alberta and other major global markets), and to demonstrate how health economics can be used to improve commercialization success for both early and later stage companies.
