Our MISSION is to improve the way value is measured and rewarded in the healthcare system.
Our GOAL is to promote the development and use of high value interventions that advance health.
The Value Debate
Scientific, technological, and clinical advances are driving a revolution in patient care – but spending on health care also continues to increase. Most observers agree that change is needed in order to link health care 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 Innovation and Value Initiative (IVI) was created to raise the level of discussion regarding value in health care 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 health care 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.
Patients are likely to continue to be asked to take more responsibility for their healthcare…it is time to shift the discussion toward helping patients understand what value actually means in choosing their health care and discharging their financial responsibilities.
