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?

Dexamethasone for Treatment of COVID-19

Dexamethasone is a glucocorticoid that is FDA-approved for numerous indications; it is under investigation for the treatment of COVID-19. Glucocorticoids are adrenocortical steroids that modify the body’s immune responses to diverse stimuli.

InterAtrial Shunt Device for Heart Failure

The interatrial shunt device (IASD) is a transcatheter interatrial shunt for treatment of heart failure with preserved or borderline reduced ejection fraction. It is proposed to decrease elevated left atrial pressure in patients with heart failure and preserved or borderline reduced ejection fraction. The device is implanted within the septum separating the two atrial chamber…

Givlaari (Givosiran) for Acute Hepatic Porphyria

Givlaari is a subcutaneously administered ribonucleic acid interference (RNAi) agent that inhibits delta-aminolevulinate synthase 1 (ALAS1) synthesis, a key regulator of the heme biosynthetic pathway in the liver. Givlaari is believed to reduce ALAS1 levels, thereby decreasing delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) and porphobilinogen (PBG) levels. Decreasing ALA and PBG levels to n…
