NHC CEO Marc Boutin on Patients as Partners in Innovation, Education, and More at eyeforpharma


By Christina Howerton, Manager, Communications and New Media

In April, National Health Council Chief Executive Marc Boutin, JD, participated in a fireside chat with Percival Barretto-Ko, President of Astellas Pharma, at the eyeforpharma Conference in Philadelphia, PA.

“In the past five years, we’ve shifted from a minority of people with chronic conditions to a majority. Over 60 percent of the population has one or more chronic condition, and over 30 percent of children have a chronic condition,” Boutin said.

“We (the NHC and our members) were able to work with the FDA to create guidance on how to do patient engagement to reform how we look at patient reported outcomes and begin to develop core outcome sets, not just for the regulator, but for HTA (health technology assessment) bodies and payers.”
