Program Finalized for October 2018 ISPOR Summit on Value Assessment and Healthcare Pricing

Speakers Include Mark McClellan, MD, PhD, Duke-Margolis Health Policy Center and John M. O’Brien, PharmD, MPH, US Department of Health & Human Services


Lawrenceville, NJ, USA—October 2, 2018—ISPOR, the professional society for health economics and outcomes research, announced the full program and speakers for the upcoming ISPOR Summit 2018, “New Approaches to Value Assessment: Towards More Informed Pricing in Healthcare,” scheduled for October 19, 2018 in Washington, DC, USA.

The Summit is timely as healthcare pricing, particularly drug pricing, faces greater scrutiny and healthcare costs continue to increase year after year. Summit sessions will examine various approaches to measuring value and explore how these value assessments could be used in pricing and coverage decisions. This Summit will complement the recently published work by the ISPOR Special Task Force for the Initiative on US Value Assessment Frameworks by creating a forum for discussion of the research agenda and current initiatives. By convening a broad range of stakeholders, the Summit will focus on how pricing could better reflect the value that patients and society as a whole derive from healthcare.

Mark McClellan, MD, PhD, Director of the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy and former US FDA Commissioner and CMS Administrator will provide the keynote address for the Summit. Recently confirmed as a speaker for the final session, “Practical Next Steps in Improving Value Measurement and Use,” is John M. O’Brien, PharmD, MPH. Dr O’Brien is Deputy Assistant Secretary at the US Department of Health and Human Services. Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy is also a supporter of the Summit.
