OHE Lunchtime Seminar with Andrea Manca: Economic Evaluation for Decision-making and the Value of Access to Individual Patient Data

Professor Andrea Manca from the University of York will lead an OHE Lunchtime Seminar on 13th February 2017 on the topic of economic evaluation for decision-making and the value of access to individual patient data.

The international debate surrounding the opportunities offered by (and the challenges associated with) a more systematic approach to patient-level data sharing has yet to settle. The arguments in favour and against are well known, and the discussion so far has involved a wide range of stakeholders with potentially competing interests.

To successfully support healthcare decision-making, cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) must consider and synthesise all (relevant) available evidence relating to the clinical effectiveness, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and costs of the health technologies under scrutiny.  The evidence base available to the HTA agency is often multifaceted and fragmented, comprising a mix of aggregate (or summary level data - AD) and individual patient-level data (IPD). This poses a series of methodological issues for those tasked with providing information to support policy making. 

This lecture will offer a health economics perspective on the value of access to individual patient-level data to guide HTA-like and other forms of decision-making in healthcare.

Professor Andrea Manca’s research focuses on developing methodological solutions to address the issues faced by policy makers when trying to analyse and interpret health economics and outcome research data. He is member of the NICE Technology Appraisal Committee, Deputy Chair of the UK National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Doctoral Research Fellowships panel, and member of the ISPOR Bernie O'Brien New Investigator Award panel.

The seminar will be held in the Sir Alexander Fleming Room, Southside, 7th Floor, 105 Victoria St, London, SW1E 6QT. A buffet lunch will be available from 12:00 noon. The seminar will start promptly at 12.30 pm and finish promptly at 2.00 pm.
