MAIMON RESEARCH LLC: A NEW START RESEARCH AGENDA IN HEALTH TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT
SUPPORTING THE CREDIBILITY, EVALUATION AND REPLICATION OF VALUE CLAIMS FOR PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS AND DEVICES
Maimon Research LLC is a long established boutique consulting company specializing in health technology assessment, together with advising and implementing market access strategies to support pharmaceutical products and devices over their life cycle.
The focus of Maimon Research is on developing claims for pharmaceutical products and devices that meet the standards of normal science: value claims that are credible, evaluable, and replicable.
This sets Maimon Research apart from other health technology assessment consultants who support the mainstream in health technology assessment focused on the invention of imaginary value claims. . Unlike competitors, Maimon Research rejects the pseudoscience of assumption driven modeled value claims, offering instead a unique and methodologically acceptable approach to credible claims, their assessment, and replication in target patient populations.
Maimon research puts to one side the approximate information meme promoted by academic and other leaders in health technology assessment; a false belief system that has lasted for over 30 years.
Instead, Maimon Research offers a new start in technology assessment with value claims that support the standards of normal science and the axioms of fundamental evidence. Modeling is rejected as an absurd waste of time and effort to produce any number of competing modeled claims in favor of single attribute value claims that meet required ratio or interval measurement properties. This means that the recently released CHEERS 22 guidance for economic evaluations should be rejected out of hand.
The dominant assumption driven technology assessment meme is an intellectual and analytical dead end. It has to be abandoned in favor of value assessment frameworks that make sense for formulary committees.
The purpose of this website is to introduce prospective clients to the case made in a number of commentaries authored by Dr Paul C Langley, Director, Maimon Research for the standards required to make product claims that meet those of normal science. Links are provided to publications and commentaries which have evaluated approximate information claims.
Wyoming Certificate in Health Technology Assessment
UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING, SCHOOL OF PHARMACY
ACPE ACCREDITED CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
A NEW START IN HEALTH TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT
The School of Pharmacy, University of Wyoming in association with Maimon Research is introducing an ACPE Accredited Certificate Program A New Start in Health Technology Assessment. The program is available globally, with a Certificate awarded by the University of Wyoming, but for those seeking to maintain registration in the US completion of the 14-module program yields 20 credit hours. The Program is designed for those who are looking to a new framework for the evaluation of pharmaceutical products and devices, to support robust value claims, ongoing disease area and therapeutic class reviews, and if required, outcomes-based contracting. A new analytical framework that meets the standards of normal science and fundamental measurement, unlike the analytical dead end of assumption driven modeled simulations that produce only imaginary and hence non-evaluable claims.
A detailed introduction to the Program and how to enroll is provided at the link UW CERT.
In a modified form, this program is available as an online post-graduate 3-hour credit course from the School of Pharmacy, University of Wyoming. Again, a detailed introduction to this course (PHCY 5141) is provided at the link UW 5141.
