Clifford Goodman, senior vice president and director at the Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research at the Lewin Group, said in an interview value frameworks are continually evolving and adapting in the health care marketplace.
“Value frameworks also recognize that value is the in the eye of the beholder,” Goodman said in the interview with the American Journal of Managed Care. “Different stakeholders in the health care system obviously have different perspectives on what comprises value.”
Since 2014, according to Goodman, “about a half dozen” frameworks have become highly-regarded in the United States as people begin to more carefully weigh health care costs and benefits.
“The best thing to realize about them now is that they are continuing to evolve,” Goodman said. “Those that develop the frameworks are, for the most part, listening and gaining feedback and tweaking along the way.”
