  • Partner with Clinical Affairs to ensure inclusion of economic evidence and patient reported outcome measures in study databases
  • Support the development and effective use of marketing materials containing economic value information generated or acquired by the HEOR team
  • Generate and disseminate economic evidence in support of global Value Dossiers and promotional material for Value Analysis Committees
  • Collaborate with physician customers to publish and present economic data analyses and value justifications, including participation in medical congresses, presentation of abstracts, and publication in peer-reviewed journals
  • Increased awareness and understanding of HEOR and its role in supporting the success of Gore medical products
