Matt Kirchmann – Director
Matt is a solicitor and economist, having over the last 15 years focused predominantly on the pharmaceutical and health industries. He has both strong economic credentials, having completed honours in economics and econometrics as well as lecturing at Monash University, in addition to his legal foundations.
Matt also has a particular focus on the economic modelling of the cost-effectiveness of medical technologies (as distinct from their financial impact) and consequently has acquired a broad range of specialised modelling and mathematical skills.
Matt has modelled the financial impact of PBS listings in order to support applications to the PBAC, MSAC and to establish the market viability of introducing new medications into Australia.
As a team of highly skilled consultants to the health care sector we specialise in the provision and reimbursement of pharmaceuticals in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe.
Since 2000, we have been advising the pharmaceutical sector from the largest multi-national manufacturers and suppliers to wholesalers and community pharmacy as well as their representative organisations.
Our team’s breadth of skills and knowledge has come from many years of working in the healthcare industry.
