The promise of precision medicine is exciting. The idea that we can use technology upfront, mainly in the form of diagnostic tests, to accurately determine risk for disease development or recurrence; to stratify patients for response to drugs and procedures; to determine patient outcomes –has led to the executive initiatives and Moonshot programs leading healthcare progress today. But achievements in precision medicine depend on the commercialization of well-validated diagnostic tests that are appropriately valued and paid for in our healthcare system.
This is not happening today because diagnostic tests are caught in a vicious cycle: inadequate financing leads to poor clinical validation, which leads to low or no reimbursement, which leads back to inadequate financing.
Alva10 aims to break the cycle of commoditization in diagnostics, and bring radically new tests to bear on value-based healthcare.
The most difficult part of bringing a new technology into the healthcare market is rarely the technical aspect. Most companies fail because of the commercial challenges – especially market access and reimbursement. This is where Alva10 puts its energy and resources: establishing the value of the healthcare product through our unique solution. We focus on aligning incentives of diagnostic companies with payers in a unique business model that takes into account both stakeholders. Our proprietary algorithm determines both the likelihood of market success, and the diagnostic’s value to the healthcare system.
The end result is an ecosystem where the right diagnostic is developed, utilized, and valued by providers, payers, and patients alike.
