WASHINGTON, D.C. – (June 7, 2022) –Today, AHIP is pleased to announce access to the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER)’s cloud-based platform, ICER Analytics™, as a new, free benefit for AHIP members.
“AHIP’s subscription now puts ICER’s work at the fingertips of all AHIP members in a new way,” said Kate Berry, Senior Vice President, Clinical Affairs and Strategic Partnerships at AHIP. “ICER Analytics will allow AHIP members to search and sort through evidence-based reports, create customized data analyses, and explore new ways to apply evidence as they work toward a health system based on fair value and effectiveness.”
ICER is an independent, non-profit research organization with more than 15 years’ experience evaluating the evidence on the clinical and economic value of prescription drugs, medical tests, devices, and other health system delivery innovations. ICER also engages with leading academic scholars, patient groups, clinical experts, health insurance providers, and other key stakeholders as part of its evidence review process. The results of this rigorous research drive the ICER Analytics tool.
ICER Analytics is comprised of two tools—the Evidence Compendium™ and Interactive Modeler™. The platform facilitates the use of ICER’s evidence reports and underlying analyses by decision-makers as they develop medical policy, plan drug development, and plan for drug costs.
“We believe that AHIP’s special subscription on behalf of all its members represents a seminal moment in the growth of the application of evidence on effectiveness and value in the US health care system,” said Steven D. Pearson, MD, MSc, ICER’s President. “Over the past 16 years, ICER has dedicated itself to catalyzing more transparent public dialogue on access and value. The use of our work has grown as life sciences companies, payers, and state and federal policymakers all seek ways to achieve higher value health care.”
AHIP joins a growing list of ICER Analytics subscribers that span major pharmaceutical companies, insurers and pharmacy benefit managers, international health technology assessment (HTA) organizations, patient groups, academic institutions, Medicaid agencies, and federal and state agencies.
Access to ICER Analytics is free to all AHIP Member Organizations. AHIP Member Organizations interested in starting their subscription are encouraged to email ICER’s Strategic Partnerships Team, Amanda Mehlman and Maggie Houle, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
