Fall 2021 Virtual Event Details

The Annual Methods Summit convenes health policy leaders, health care executives, patient leaders, and researchers to address critical challenges in patient-centered value assessment. During the 2021 Methods Summit, IVI will convene key leaders to build answers and consensus on the key questions: “What are the most important data inputs to represent patient preferences and patient outcomes?” and “How can we harness this data to drive insights in patient-centered outcomes research and value assessment?”

Some sessions of the 2021 Methods Summit will be by invitation only. Additional event details, including dates and agenda will be available soon.

Words from Our Thought Leaders and Experts from the 2020 Methods Summit

Jennifer Bright, MPAExecutive Director, Innovation and Value Initiative
“It was gratifying to bring together such a committed cross-section of health care leaders to really dive into a complex discussion of how to improve the methods we’re using to measure and compare value of health interventions. There is strong agreement that we need to collectively invest in improving the data inputs – particularly representing patient preferences and outcomes – and work to define how novel methods and value assessment tools can offer insights in context to unique decision makers. “

“IVI’s ability to bring this diverse group together is key, and it is never easy…It was a pleasure and an honor to participate in this lively and important discussion with implications for where we researchers need to focus our efforts in the months and years to come to meaningfully improve value assessment. No doubt, these participants and many others will want to carry forward this work.”
