IVI’s Open-Source Value Project (OSVP) models improve over time through an ongoing cycle of public feedback, expert review, revision, and re-release. Public comments on new model releases are the basis for later changes, but these comments must be synthesized into specific recommendations and priorities for model improvements. Technical Expert Panels fill this essential role.
For each disease-specific OSVP model released by IVI, a Technical Expert Panel of third-party subject matter experts is responsible for reviewing all public comments, identifying specific priorities for revisions, and developing a prioritized set of recommendations. These recommendations determine IVI’s revisions to the next model release.
