Many countries have developed standard approaches to assessing the value of new technologies, and under mounting financial pressures, the US is grappling with how to do the same. Measures of value currently in use often take a narrow approach that misses important components of value to patients and society — which may lead to underuse of treatments that may provide important benefits.
In this webinar Anupam B. Jena, MD, PhD and Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School, will share practical techniques for broadening the framework of assessing value. This can improve identification of the highest value treatments and also, the low-value therapies on which spending can be safely reduced.
Three essential takeaways for webinar attendees:
- Learn about important components of value that traditional cost-effectiveness methods miss
- Understand approaches to address affordability challenges posed by high-cost but valuable treatments
- Identify practical steps that can promote use of the highest value treatments while reducing spending on low-value services
A live Q&A session with Dr. Jena will follow the presentation.
