Health Economics & Statistical Analysis
Technomics Research Services
Technomics Research provides several types of
analyses and related services that are aimed at
demonstrating the value of your healthcare
product. Frequently, new technologies are
approved for market based on improved clinical
results, but are also more expensive. In these cases,
payers and purchasers often need to understand
how cost-effective your product is compared to its
competitors. Or you may have a technology that
reduces cost without sacrificing the clinical benefit.
In this case, you are likely to need a costminimization analysis. If the product is capital
equipment, the purchaser may need an ROI (return
on investment) analysis. Technomics Research can
help you assess what kind of analysis would be
Economic modeling and analyses: cost-effectiveness, cost-minimization, cost-utility, ROI,
budget impact, and others
Outcomes research, study design and analysis
Disease management program evaluation
Clinical research, study design and analysis
Statistical design and analysis (Bayesian and Frequentist)
Examples of Case Studies
Company Made Medical Device That Decreased The Rate Of Infections in Traumatic Wounds
A company made a medical device that, in randomized clinical
trial, decreased the rate of infections in traumatic wounds
treated in the emergency department. The hospital buyers
objected to the cost of the device. Dr. Martinson developed a
pro forma which demonstrated that in uninsured patients, the
device was cost saving because it prevented additional
hospital losses that would have occurred if infections had
developed in these patients. The company reported that it
enjoyed good adoption in hospitals serving populations with
high uninsurance rates.
New Drug Developed To Treat Diabetic Wounds
A pharmaceutical start-up developed a new drug to treat
infected diabetic wounds and wanted to understand how the
product could be rationally priced. Dr. Martinson developed a
value-based pricing model which demonstrated that the drug
would be valued at a relative high price because it would avert
wound complications that would have cost more money than
Therapy for Incontinence Equally Effective And Less Costly Than Competitive Therapies
A medical device manufacturer developed a therapy for
incontinence that was equally effective and less costly
compared to a competitive therapy. In spite of this, insurers
were sometimes reluctant to cover it. Dr. Martinson developed
a Markov model showing the cost-effectiveness of the
company's device compared to the competition. A paper from
this study in under publication review, which the company
believes will be received favorably by insurers.
