Today, we are on site for day 2 of ISPOR’s annual conference in New Orleans!

We will be recapping some of the top news presented each day during the meeting—and soon we’ll speak with Julia Slejko, PhD, an assistant professor of pharmaceutical health services research at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, about incorporating the patient voice into value-based decision making, and Michael Sherman, MD, the chief medical officer of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, about ICER’s value-based price assessments.

Welcome to AJMC® On Location, I’m Jaime Rosenberg!

During the second day of the meeting, sessions surrounded value and different mechanisms of determining cost-effectiveness. First, there was a session on ICER and its value-based price assessments that inform payer access decisions. Another session took a look at different approaches that leverage real-world data in order to extend the survival curve in cost-effectiveness analyses. Finally, a session explored additional elements of value that could be included in value assessment of new drugs.
