With support from a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute® (PCORI) Eugene Washington Engagement Award, on February 27, 2020 IVI hosted a first-of-its-kind multi-stakeholder summit to examine current gaps and emerging approaches in value assessment.
IVI’s Methods Summit, entitled Defining Needs and Progress Toward Improving Methods in Value Assessment, brought together more than 45 thought leaders representing patient organizations, health systems, health plans, clinicians, employer purchasers, and research and methods experts. The group shared perspectives and priorities for improving methods of value assessment and considered the opportunities to address current gaps. Participants identified top priorities for improvement in methods and considered immediate and longer term factors that can lead to change, including:
IVI’s Methods Summit serves as a call to action for both the health economics community and decision stakeholders to acknowledge the current gaps in value assessment and identify scientifically valid, emerging avenues to measure value. To ensure a patient-centered and value-focused system – from research to bedside – all stakeholders in the value conversation must define a prioritized research agenda. IVI plans to build on the success of this year’s summit and track progress by convening annual progress meetings.
