Dr. Tanios Bekaii-Saab considers The Institute for Value-Based Medicine as a means of giving a voice to the people, and helping everyone truly understand the cost of care and the value of care while offering a real-world perspective.
The VBOnc workshop finally had people dissecting the issues around high healthcare costs, said Dr. Andrew Pecora.
Dr. Jason Luke says that it is important to understand how to use newly-approved drugs in the most cost-effective and value-based way in order to ultimately maximize effectiveness, limit toxicity, and provide quality to patients.
