EHC Health Economics Course


Health Economics Course 2024 (16/09/2024 – 31/10/2024)

Registration is now open! 

For a decade the EHC has provided NMOs and a wider community with education on the evolution of health economics, tender process, and procurement in bleeding disorders.

From the first face-to-face meeting in London in 2013, health technology assessments (HTA) have become commonplace in national healthcare systems and bleeding disorders.  The ability for an individual patient to input into horizon scanning, model inputs and design, procurement methods, and reporting is increasing with HTA agencies improving their engagement processes. The EHC aims to ensure access to education for patients and patient organisations on-demand for engaging in health technology assessments. As a result, in 2023, the EHC decided to create an online educational course on Health Economics in Europe.

We invite all rare bleeding disorders patients to enrol in this course. The programme may also act as a quick reference guide for students, researchers, and HTA agencies to begin to understand the issues related to bleeding disorders and how to evaluate them. Please note that the industry representatives will not be accepted as attendees.

What people say about our previous edition:

“I liked the breadth and depth of the concepts with practical relevant examples”

“It was very useful to hear about the systems in different countries and to see the cost/life years statistics”

“All concepts are in one place. Very well-explained definitions and their applications in our field”

Join us in 2024 if you’re interested in:

  • Learning how to analyse various treatments and assess their value.
  • Understanding how HTA bodies assess treatments and ways to impact this evaluation.
  • Helping your government in ensuring treatment access for patients with bleeding disorders.
  • Exploring ways to balance innovative treatments with budget limitations.
A tip from last year’s attendees: dedicate time every day to learning to achieve the best results!
