As an industry and academic leader, as well as playing an integral part in the development of Health Economics & Outcomes Research in the United States, Dr. Joe Jackson entertains us with a combination of part history lesson, part futurist, and a splash of case studies on the evolution of value assessment in medicine. Weaving in major US government policy initiatives that revolutionized how healthcare was delivered and paid for, with examples of how other countries view patient care, Dr. Jackson demonstrates the changes in evidence based medicine, evaluative clinical sciences, and health technology assessment over the past 30 years. Joe also shares his views on what the Sovaldi Hepatitis C treatment means for healthcare, and what the Niacin for HDL improvement meant for evidence-based medicine.
