HSANZ and ALLG Welcome the House of Representatives’ Standing Committee Report tabled in Parliament 25 November 2021
The ALLG and HSANZ welcomes the Report tabled in Parliament 25/11/21 on ‘The New Frontier - Delivering better health for all Australians: Inquiry into approval processes for new drugs and novel medical technologies in Australia’, by the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Health, Aged Care and Sport.
Medical innovation has grown exponentially in recent years. The approval processes for new medicines are very complex, and this report discusses different ways to streamline them to provide better and faster patient access to treatments; without compromising on patient safety, efficacy or cost effectiveness.
The Committee’s Report details 31 recommendations which aim to help government improve and reform the regulatory and reimbursement system; and helps pave the way for the improvements needed to provide Australians with the best possible health care now and into the future.
