IVI’s MISSION is to advance the science, practice, and use of value assessment in healthcare to make it more meaningful to those who receive, provide, and pay for care.

IVI has a GOAL of building a community to create rigorous, innovative, and relevant methods and translational research that facilitates patient-centered value assessment and emphasizes flexibility and usability for the unique decision contexts of individual decision-makers.

The Value Debate

One significant and ongoing challenge in healthcare today is the measurement of value. Most healthcare providers, payers, and patients would agree the cost of medication, treatment, or medical service should reflect the value it delivers. And yet, consensus does not yet exist about the component perspectives, methods, and data that should be used to define value. This status quo demands better answers to the questions, “How do you measure value? And for whom?”

A New Approach

We need a better approach to value assessment that puts patients at the center. As part of this we also need a more transparent and collaborative approach toward building the models we use to assess value.

IVI is working to drive innovation in value assessment through collaborative research on patient preferences, novel methods of value, and value assessment model development. We work with patients, payers, and providers to assess what value means to them, and serve as a laboratory for testing new methods to improve value assessment.
