CHDS Seminar with Steven Pearson, “Making Cost-effectiveness a Major Element in US Drug Policy”
May 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Abstract: The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) fills a unique role in the U.S. health care landscape. As it passes its 15th year in operation, ICER’s impact has never been greater, yet significant obstacles still remain. What have been the lessons learned about conducting and communicating cost-effectiveness analyses for decision-makers in the U.S.? Steve Pearson, the Founder of ICER, will address this question and share his vision for the future.
