Scientific Leader CDM

A tool for policy analysis and reimbursement strategy in diabetes

The IMS CORE Diabetes Model (IMS Health CDM) simulates disease progression in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The model is a tool that can be used to explore economic value over the course of a product’s lifecycle. Potential applications include identification of clinical development priorities, pricing evaluation, health technology assessment and post-launch market access support. The IMS Health CDM is a computer simulation model designed to take surrogate endpoints and translate them in to long term health economic outcomes:

The IMS Health CDM is the most widely adopted economic model in diabetes available to users from academia, and health care industries, as well as health care payers and decision makers.

  • The model has undergone an extensive validation process.
  • It is continually updated to include the latest clinical and epidemiological data as well as to implement functional improvements.
  • Results from the model have been widely published, with over 80 peer-reviewed publications.
  • 7 of the 10 largest diabetes drug and device manufacturers are using the CDM.
