Horizon Scanning

It is a challenge for health plans and clinicians to know what emerging technologies are in the preapproval phase and what their clinical, financial, and risk impacts might be. This is where we come in.

The Hayes Horizon Scanning Solution identifies innovative and potentially disruptive health technologies that are in various stages of the regulatory approval process. Our Research Analysts continually investigate new technologies that are on the horizon or in the early stages of clinical investigation, as well as the testing of existing technologies that may be seeking approval for new clinical applications. Hayes Horizon Scanning helps you track emerging technologies before you need to make decisions. Accessed through the Hayes Knowledge Center, Hayes Horizon Scanning addresses the following fundamental questions to help our clients forecast emerging technologies:

  • Is this emerging technology new or replacing an existing technology?
  • Where is this technology in the FDA regulatory process?
  • When will this technology be commercially available in the market?
  • What is the projected use, cost, and financial impact of this technology?

Lisocabtagene Maraleucel for Large B-Cell Lymphoma

Lisocabtagene maraleucel (liso-cel) is an investigational, autologous chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, a novel type of immunotherapy in which a patient’s own immune cells are genetically re-programmed to target and attack cancer cells. It is proposed to treat adults with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma after at least 2 prior therapies.

Voclosporin for Lupus Nephritis

Voclosporin is an oral, investigational calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) that is similar in structure to cyclosporine. It is proposed as an addition to standard induction therapy for the treatment of active lupus nephritis in adult patients.

Remestemcel-L for Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease

Remestemcel-L is an allogeneic liquid cell suspension of ex-vivo cultured adult human mesenchymal stem cells derived from healthy donor bone marrow proposed for the treatment of pediatric patients with acute graft-versus-host-disease (aGVHD) refractory to standard first-line steroid therapy.

Anifrolumab for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Anifrolumab is an investigational fully human monoclonal antibody that binds to subunit 1 of the type I interferon (IFN) receptor, blocking the activity of all type I IFNs. It is proposed for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who are receiving standard care.
