eMaps – a knowledge hub for life science innovators
Getting products to patients can be a long and expensive journey for life science innovators. Finding your way through each stage of the journey requires significant skills, knowledge, expertise and investment.
Through EIT Health funding the Oxford Academic Health Science Network has built an alliance of European partners to develop a digital knowledge hub to help navigate these complex international market access processes.
The European Market Access for Partners (eMaps) platform offers modular, tailored information according to users’ specific needs in three technology areas:
- Drugs and biotech
- Medtech and diagnostics
- Digital health
The platform provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for advice and information on key areas of market access including:
- Clarifying and testing value proposition
- Regulations and compliance
- Pricing and reimbursement
- Market structure, key stakeholders and pathways to market access
The platform already includes modules on market access in the UK, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark. Further modules on Germany, Italy, Portugal and the USA will follow in 2019.

In December 2017 James Rose chaired a session at the EIT Health Summit on Reimbursement in Europe. Download the slides from James’ talk here.
