Use of Patient-Centered Outcomes for Decision-making: Challenges of Using Subjective Data in Regulatory & Reimbursement

Vascular Cures is launching a series of webinars designed to tackle timely and critical questions that address patient-centric issues in vascular health. This conversation will explore the natural tension between the importance of patient-centered outcomes and the challenges of utilizing that data for the approval and reimbursement of new products. A panel of leaders in regulatory, reimbursement and patient-centered outcomes will take part in a 45-minute session of moderated discussion, followed by 15-30 minutes of Q&A.
