Exploring Value: Novel Elements for Breakthrough Treatment



Value assessments have become commonplace to help health systems ensure that healthcare expenditure is spent optimally. However, there is no common understanding of what constitutes value that adequately captures what matters most to patients, society, and payers.

This issue has been exacerbated by breakthrough treatments that offer new sources of value that are currently not considered by healthcare systems. Coherent value frameworks can shed the light on key benefits generated by innovative treatments and structure the dialogue around payers’ willingness to pay for them.

Join us for the first Masterclass of 2020 where OHE’s thought leaders and industry experts will discuss both established and novel elements of value including the practical and policy challenges facing companies advocating their adoption. The Masterclass will end by considering how these arguments resonate with payers and HTA decision makers, as well as how multi-dimensional value measurement could be incorporated into existing and future value assessment frameworks. 


Demonstrating Value: evolving with innovation explores this lively technical and policy debate where the evolving and sometimes challenging nature of innovative interventions is not always matched by value assessment paradigms applied by country decision makers.

Value assessments are necessary to ensure that healthcare expenditure is optimal but there is a need for a common understanding of what constitutes value, capturing what matters most to patients, society, and payers. The 2020 Masterclass Series will take attendees through the journey of exploring value from different perspectives and providing tools to identify consolidated and novel sources of value, and generate compelling evidence at different stages of the product life-cycle to demonstrate them.
