What makes HTA support from Costello Medical different?

A comprehensive HTA solution

We work as one internal team to deliver all components of your HTA evidence package. We firmly believe that in doing so we can offer a solution that is not only more efficient, but that also results in a strong, consistent and self-reinforcing HTA narrative throughout the HTA submission dossier.

Provision of strategic advice

We are experienced in advising clients on wide-ranging strategic HTA challenges, such as immature survival data and uncertainty in long-term clinical effectiveness, lack of data for relevant comparators and the use of real-world evidence, difficulties in demonstrating cost-effectiveness at the desired price, and the use of the most appropriate methods for indirect treatment comparison.

High quality writing support

Our extensive experience in writing for HTA, coupled with thorough postgraduate-level training in health economics received by most of our medical writers, makes us ideally placed to seamlessly weave together the clinical and economic stories within your HTA submission dossier, and develop a clear, evidence-based and persuasive narrative.

Exceptional customer service

We genuinely care about the outcome of our clients’ HTA submissions as much as they do. We aim to become an integral part of the client team, providing technical expertise and the highest quality deliverables to form the complete HTA evidence package alongside proactive and responsible project management support.

Specialist HTA expertise

We have a dedicated Rare Diseases team who specialise in the delivery of HTA evidence generation and submission dossier delivery in the rare diseases space. We also provide guidance on engaging with patients/patient organisations throughout the appraisal process. Beyond pharmaceuticals, we have experience in the delivery of early HTA planning and strategy, HTA evidence generation, economic modelling and HTA submission dossier writing for devices and diagnostics, in collaboration with our MedTech team.

Passion for the field

We are keen contributors of research on key advances in HTA methods and processes at international conferences, including posters, oral presentations, workshops, and issue panels presented at ISPOR and HTAi. Explore our dedicated pages to find out more.
