The chapter's main goals are to increase the provision of health economics and outcomes research evidence and its use in health policy decision making in Austria and to provide opportunities for cooperation both within the Austrian Community and with international partners. The Chapter will facilitate the interaction and understanding between health care researchers, health care providers, patients and consumers, pharmaceutical and device companies, and health care decison makers interested in research related to Austria in clinical effectiveness, pharmacoeconomics/cost-effectiveness, health care systems and health services and outcomes reserach, by providing a platform for exchanging ideas and establishing collaboration.
The ISPOR Austria Chapter is planning to establish collaborations with other ISPOR regional chapters, and will organize regular scientific, educational and policy impact meetings and events in Vienna and at ISPOR conferences aiming at exchanging experiences and information about the Austrian health care system and fostering scientific and educational activities among the members in order to develop the Austrian health care system further in this respect.
Furthermore, the chapter seeks to present and publish the results of collaborative efforts to reach a wider audience. The Chapter will inform on local educational activities and organize seminars and workshops on selected topics. We are looking forward to welcoming new members and collaborators with an interest in HEOR topics in Austria.
The ISPOR Austria Chapter will hold its first Chapter meeting at the ISPOR Congress in Glasgow.
