Mr. Droeschel developed and teaches the course Managed Care at the SRH Fernhochschule Riedlingen.
Master course: Health Technology Assessment (HTA)
Health Technology Assessment is a key component in the market access decisions and pricing negotiations accros Europe and other parts of the world. Dr Walzer puts special emphasize on the different clinical benefit assessment methods including systematic literature searches, meta-analysis and the characteristics of the different clinical studies. Furthermore the key health economic components such as cost-effectiveness and budget impact modelling are a key component of the course.
Bachelor course: Market Access
Market Access in Health Care is the key for a successful market launch of a new product or therapy. Dr. Walzer focuses not only on the German market access pathways for pharmaceuticals ("AMNOG") and medical devices (inpatient vs outpatient) but is also touching base on the other key European markets (France, Italy, Spain, UK). Students will also learn the specifics of value differentiation and pricing policy from an industry and payer perspective.
Bachelor course: Managed Care
The steering of treating and caring processes is becoming increasingly important for health systems. Firstly, the provision of care gradually needs to be established interdisciplinary and cross sectorial (combining inpatient and outpatient care) secondly an expansion of selective contracting is ascertainable and politically intended. In different formats Managed Care organizations appear noticeably and the respective instruments become applied variously. Students will learn the specifics of managed care and its different concepts with a special focus on Germany.
