The summit will address priority patient inputs for comparative effectiveness research and health technology assessments.

Alexandria, VA — April 27, 2021 — The Innovation and Value Initiative (IVI), an independent nonprofit research organization dedicated to advancing patient-centric value assessment, today announced it will convene the second annual Methods Summit, a multi-stakeholder event to drive consensus on priority patient inputs, methods, and research that more fully represent the patient perspective in comparative effectiveness research and economic evaluations of health care interventions.

The program, Designing Equitable Measures and Methods for Patient Priorities in Healthcare Value Assessment, is partially funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (# EAIN-21156). PCORI is an independent, nonprofit organization authorized by Congress in 2010 to fund research that will provide patients, their caregivers, and clinicians with the evidence-based information needed to make better-informed healthcare decisions.

The 3-part virtual summit series will take place in fall 2021. IVI and its partners will engage patient leaders and stakeholders across the health care landscape – including researchers, providers, and payers – to build consensus on how to define, collect, and use data that more fully represent the impacts on patients of disease and treatment options.
