Irish Health & Market Access
Landscape Report 2021

AXIS Consulting has launched its inaugural health & market access landscape report for Ireland. The Irish Health & Market Access Landscape Report 2021 provides a comprehensive overview of the Irish health ecosystem with a particular focus on how reimbursement decisions on new medicines are made.

Written by the experts at AXIS, this 42-page report includes critical insights on how the various bodies involved in decision making in Ireland connect and interlink. It’s essential reading for anyone navigating the pathway to reimbursement in Ireland.

The Irish Pathway

Ireland has its own unique, highly specific process for determining if a new medicine will be reimbursed or not . All medicines undergo an economic evaluation to assess whether the new medicine is clinically and cost effective for the population who are to receive the medicine.

Check out the Roadmap we’ve put together to help you understand the route to reimbursement.
