The Manager, Pharmacoeconomics will provide health economics expertise and advice to drug program operations and reimbursement decisions for oncology drug products. The Manager will lead the development of timely and policy-relevant economic evidence to enable provincial and pan-Canadian health technology assessment (HTA) and reimbursement decision-making. PDRP manages a process to identify, prioritize and address gaps in funding identified by the clinical community. The Unit provides economic information essential for provincial drug funding requests to the Ministry of Health that resolve gaps in drug funding in Ontario. The Manager will be accountable for the identification of economic considerations relevant to funding gaps and for the development and execution of strategic direction to resolve these gaps with deliverables that are consistent with the needs of decision-makers. The Manager will oversee the development of health economic evidence to inform drug funding decisions using cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) and budget impact analysis (BIA) modelling. The Manager will also contribute to real-world evidence (RWE) projects to address safety and effectiveness of funded oncology drugs. This includes contributing to the design and conduct of real-world utilization, effectiveness, safety and cost-effectiveness studies with patient-level data using provincial administrative databases. The Manager must be a subject matter expert in health economics and requires strong background and expertise in economic evaluation, along with clear and concise oral and written communication skills addressing both technical and non-technical audiences to enable effective stakeholder engagement and knowledge translation.

The Manager will work directly with strategic and operational colleagues in PDRP as well as external pan-Canadian policy stakeholders, including the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH). The Manager will also review and advise on economic issues in the implementation of new products in the drug program. The Manager will keep apprised to the issues and trends in health technology assessment, reimbursement, and drug program administration for oncology to provide proactive expertise and insight into the evolving Canadian drug funding landscape.
