The Associate Director, US Value Evidence Outcomes will be responsible for supporting the planning, generating, and delivering health outcomes and economic evidence across the different stages of drug development to demonstrate the value of our medicines to payers, regulators, healthcare providers, and patients. The Associate Director will sit in the US VEO group, reporting to the Senior Director of Respiratory and General Medicines and support the portfolio with an initial emphasis on respiratory biologics. Given GSKs pipeline in the respiratory and infectious disease, the Associate Director may also support future pipeline assets.

VEO Associate Directors are critical to assessing the value evidence requirements of our launched and pipeline assets through stakeholder insights and implementing tactics to address these. The successful candidate will work closely with asset teams to address strategic questions. For example, what is the level of unmet need, how do our assets address this versus competitors, what is the key evidence required to address market access challenges at launch and beyond?

Business Context: Healthcare decision makers depend on manufacturers to generate evidence for new products to launch and maintain access. Lack of appropriate evidence to quantify the efficacy and safety of novel compounds, and limitations in accessibility and usability of evidence (i.e., applicability of evidence supplied to the real-world) have been identified as barriers for informed healthcare decision making. Achieving and maintaining market access for a product involves understanding the relevant evidence requirements for reimbursement and access, recognizing the challenges these pose for drug developers and identifying tactics to address these challenges.

Value Evidence and Outcomes: The VEO vision is that GSK commercialises medicines of value to internal and external stakeholders. We drive the definition and demonstration of value for GSK medicines, optimising patient benefit and access. We have a particular focus on Real World Evidence (RWE) and believe that GSK will lead the industry in the generation of impactful RWE.
