Sue Phillips - Director
Sue is an experienced industry professional with a strong technical and policy understanding of market access requirements in both Australia and New Zealand, including reimbursement and pricing and pipeline planning/commercialisation activities. Over 15 years in industry, she has held increasingly senior positions in health outcomes and pricing, market access and new product launch planning.
Most recently Sue managed the Market Access function and served on the Senior Management Team of a leading Australian consultancy practice. Under her leadership the Market Access group consistently delivered high quality strategic assessments, modelled economic evaluations and pricing projects, as well as 20-30 major PBAC submissions and PHARMAC applications each year.
Sue’s experience encompasses various therapeutic areas, including cardiovascular, oncology, haematology, immunology and infectious diseases, although her special interests lie in the economic evaluation of co-dependent technologies and high cost specialised medicines. Her breadth of exposure across reimbursement projects and programs has given her a unique advantage in finding strategic solutions to critical market access and pricing challenges.
She has undergraduate qualifications in science and business, completed a Master of Public Health at the University of Melbourne in 2008 and is currently exploring options for a PhD in Health Economics. She has also served as co-chair of the Medicines Australia Co-dependent Technologies Working Group and was until recently an active member of the Health Economics Working Group.
