Join IVI in Advancing New Methods for Value Assessment

As value and health technology assessment expands in the U.S., policy leaders are searching for quick solutions to complex problems. But without thoughtful, scientific leadership, we risk hard-coding inequities into our policies and practices. Together, we can put principles of good value assessment into use. Join IVI today to:

  • Drive scientific advancement. IVI research is at the center of our work and your support helps drive the scientific agenda.
  • Put patients first. IVI is committed to patient-centricity. Your membership ensures that the diversity of patient needs, perspectives, and values are incorporated in our work.
  • Ensure transparency in research. IVI fosters communication and open dialogue about our methods and findings. The Open-Source Value Project (OSVP) anchors our modeling activities.
  • Widen the stakeholder tent. Multiple stakeholder input is key to our work. As a member, you can connect to key stakeholders and ensure your voice is heard.
  • Push beyond “good enough.” While value assessment is not new, IVI is dedicated to identifying and assessing more sophisticated and relevant methods to measure value.

For the Alliance, it was important to partner with IVI to show that there is a better way – alternatives to current value assessment models exist and can be patient-centered! As an IVI member, we look forward to carrying the vital message that additional investments are needed to advance patient-centered research.
