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?

Melphalan Hepatic Delivery System (Hepzato Kit) for Liver-Dominant Metastatic Ocular Melanoma

The Melphalan Hepatic Delivery System (M-HDS; proposed U.S. name, Hepzato Kit) is a catheter-based drug delivery and chemofiltration kit for intra-arterial administration of melphalan chemotherapy directly to the liver followed by extracorporeal filtration of hepatic venous blood to reduce melphalan concentration before returning blood to systemic circulation. It is used to p…

Humacyl Acellular Vessel for Vascular Trauma

Humacyl is an off-the-shelf bioengineered human acellular vessel proposed for use in the repair of vascular trauma. This technology uses a process to decellularize donated human vascular smooth muscle cells, while preserving extracellular matrix proteins. This results in a tubular scaffold that is acellular at the time of implantation and becomes populated with the patient’s …
