IVI’s MISSION is to advance the science and improve the practice of value assessment in healthcare.

IVI’s GOAL is to build a platform that facilitates robust and rigorous patient-centered value assessment of health technologies tailored to the needs and interests of individual decision makers.

The Value Debate

Scientific, technological, and clinical advances are driving a revolution in patient care – but spending on healthcare also continues to increase. Most observers agree that change is needed in order to link healthcare spending to value rather than volume, but determining how to make this link quickly leads to debate and disagreement. What defines value? Value to whom? And how do we measure it?

A New Approach

The nonprofit Innovation and Value Initiative (IVI) was created to raise the level of discussion regarding value in healthcare and find common ground in the approach to measuring value. The U.S health system is diverse, complex, and ripe for innovation. IVI brings together healthcare leaders from academia, patient advocacy organizations, payers, life sciences companies, providers, delivery systems, and patient communities to advance approaches to value that fit the American context.
