Three critical Committees support our work at EXCITE International:

Payers’ Advisory Committee (PAC)

EXCITE International was formed in part to address the discontinuous nature of regulatory and coverage decision-making and to address these through single harmonized studies that meet the needs and expectations of both. 

Given the pivotal nature of the Payer perspective, the Payers’ Advisory Committee (PAC) provides a generic framework for addressing the interests of Payers specifically as these relate to protocol development.
