[Webinar] How can VA/HTA Inform Policy Interventions and Public Health Investment?

October 15, 2020

Join ISPOR and the Innovation and Value Initiative (IVI) on October 23, 2020 for the fourth instalment of a free 5-part webinar series dedicated to the challenges of the HEOR community during COVID-19.

COVID-19 has unmasked the critical need for public health expertise and investment. How can the risks and benefits of public health policy interventions be best addressed by VA/HTA? How can interactions between health and other sectors in our economy be modelled in a way that is useful and informative? What roles do the public and private sector play in public health infrastructure and interventions? How can VA/HTA help frame the policy implications for public health investment? Topics of discussion include:

  • Incorporating policy and non-pharmaceutical interventions in the VA/HTA
  • How VA/HTA accounts for effect of new treatments on non-COVID related care
  • Setting priorities in public health infrastructure investment
  • Evaluating and prioritize policy interventions
  • The roles of US and global government agencies in public health investment
