Novartis to link pricing of heart failure drug to clinical outcomes

AHIP Solutions SmartBrief | Jul 01, 2015

Novartis, which anticipates approval of its heart failure drug Entresto in August, has plans to test a new pricing model that assumes some risk for clinical outcomes. The plan involves offering Entresto at a discounted price, then receiving higher payments if the drug cuts the need for hospitalization. "We are beginning to share the risk," said David Epstein, head of pharmaceuticals at Novartis. Reuters (06/30)
