about

“Value” is at the center of discussions of payment and policy, but value has different definitions and meanings reflecting the diversity of stakeholders in the healthcare system. Health technology assessments (HTAs) will likely play an integral role in health care’s paradigm shift. We cannot reward value until we properly measure it. While the details of value measurement continue to be vigorously debated, nearly unprecedented consensus has emerged over the need to align reimbursement and utilization with value.

This webinar will explore:

  • The importance of value assessment in healthcare
  • How alternative sources of value can be captured in economic analysis

Attendees will learn:

  • The background of conventional value assessments;
  • Several principles of value in healthcare;
  • The alternative sources of value that may not be considered.

Who should attend: Health Care Professionals, Payers, Patients, Policymakers
