WEBINAR 1: Measuring the Value of Health Care Treatments: Time for a New Approach
Original Air Date: December 12, 2017 at 4pm EST/1pm PST
Duration: 59 minutes
While different health care stakeholders have different perceptions of value, traditional value assessments are often “black boxes” that only account for a single perspective or a single population. For that reason, existing value frameworks tend to fall short for many individual stakeholders. The Open-Source Value Project (OSVP) seeks to change that by creating flexible, transparent, iterative, and consensus-based modeling platforms for specific diseases.
IVI has recently released its model of value assessment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Join IVI for a webinar to better understand how the OSVP process works, learn about our first model in rheumatoid arthritis, and find out how you can get involved.
WEBINAR 2: Creating Open-Source Models for Value Assessment: A Detailed Discussion of the IVI Rheumatoid Arthritis Model
Original Air Date: December 14, 2017 at 4pm EST/1pm PST
Duration: 59 minutes
Open-Source Value Project (OSVP) models are built to be entirely open-source, allowing anyone to customize the tool depending on their own assumptions and understanding of value. IVI has released the source code, documentation, and suite of tools for its open-source model of value assessment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) into the public domain. Our R package and highly customizable model interfaces allow experienced users to choose from over 300 different model structures, vary nearly all model inputs, and assess value using either cost-effectiveness or multi-criteria decision analytic approaches.
Are you interested in the technical and methodological aspects of the model? Join IVI for a webinar about the IVI-RA model and IVI’s open-source modeling approach. Presenters will walk you through the key components of the open-source consensus-based model, how the IVI model generates customized information on rheumatoid arthritis treatments, and how to apply the information in assessing value in health care.
