DIAmond Session 303: Value-Based Health Care Decision Making: The Quest for Smarter Spending
Discussions around value are not new, but health care spending based on value decisions and assessments is. Implementation of providing value in health care, particularly around the dollars and cents needed to do so, varies greatly worldwide. At DIA2016, an esteemed panel addressed this issue through Value-Based Health Care Decision Making: The Quest for Smarter Spending. “What’s different today than what we’ve seen in the past is this notion of transparency in how people are making these value decisions,” suggested Jennifer Snow. Facilitator: Jennifer Snow, MPH, Director, Reimbursement Policy Insights, Xcenda. Featured Speakers: Professor Sarah Garner, PhD, BPharm, Associate Director, Science Policy and Research, NICE, UK; Richard Willke, PhD, Chief Science Officer, International Society for Pharmacoeconomics & Outcomes Research; Newell McElwee, Merck & Co.; and Benjamin Heywood, Co-Founder, President, & Chief Privacy Officer PatientsLikeMe Inc.
