Webinar Description:

Increasingly the FDA and payers are requesting clinical utility evidence as part of their approval and coverage processes for both CDx and IVDs. Precision will explore the implications of factors for clinical utility evidence development including the type of diagnostic test, regulatory status of the test, inclusion into the associated therapy’s label, and how it will be used to guide decision making. We will take a deeper dive into design features to be considered as you plan your study, to enable integration of regulatory and payer needs. We will explore examples of designs to address both needs and how they can affect the ROI on evidence development.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the separate US FDA and payer expectations for clinical evidence
  • To identify study design features that meet those separate expectations
  • To explore overlaps in FDA and payer study designs to develop the clinical evidence
  • To discuss the impact of incorporating features of those overlaps on ROI for evidence development
