Everyone with a stake in how treatment value is measured and paid for in the U.S. healthcare system has a voice in the open-source development of IVI models. Feedback is welcome and encouraged, from the highly detailed suggestions, such as how to fix a bug in the model’s source code, to the big picture – like identifying important determinants of value that are currently missing from the model, for example, or proposing alternative approaches to value-based decision-making.
There are multiple ways to provide feedback and make recommendations to improve the value tools:
- Submit Formal Comments During Open Comment Periods: Written comments, methodological feedback, and recommendations for additions or changes should be submitted in Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org. All submitted comments will be made publicly available. Please include organizational letterhead, if applicable.
- Modify the Source Code: To contribute directly to the development of the underlying model, click here access the source code and submit changes on the IVI GitHub page.
