Public Policy Analyst

Warren Xu is an analyst with the National Policy and Federal Affairs team at GlaxoSmithKline where he researches health and pharmaceutical policy in Canada. He is a member of the Innovative Medicines Canada (IMC) pharmacare working group and has an interest in data-driven policy and utilizing data visualization to bring clarity to decision making. Warren has an MSc in biomedical engineering from the University of Calgary and a BSc in biochemistry from Queens University.

For the past several months, the policy team at GSK has been working to understand, summarize, and visualize the various models of pharmacare that have been published in recent reports. The team has been building and testing their thinking with a variety of stakeholders, including federal and provincial policy makers, academics, and key thought leaders. The resulting work is a useful resource which:

  • Summarizes 9 published models of pharmacare
  • Plots them according to incremental cost to government
  • Assesses each model according to 4 pharmacare principals
  • Maps stakeholder objectives to the spectrum of models
