  • Release of EPEMED 2014 Patient Access Study

    Founded in 2009, EPEMED’s consistent focus has been on enhancing patient access to personalised medicine in Europe. Anecdotally, European healthcare systems have been known as variable in providing patients with access to targeted medicines and the tests which inform their selection. However, specific details on the barriers associated with companion products have been lacking, and EPEMED believes that an objective dataset is necessary to inform future policy. Accordingly, in 2012 EPEMED selected La Charité’s leading Institute for Social Medicine, Epidemiology and Health Economics to conduct such a scientific research. The resulting study, titled “Enhancing Patient Access To Pharmaceutical Drug-Diagnostic Companion Products” was conducted from 2012-2014 and released in 2014.
