The chapter has made some significant steps forward in HEOR education and training in 2016. We have held 6 training courses in various places, such as, Beijing, Anhui, Shaanxi, and Chongqing. The training courses included Clinical Economic Evaluation and Medical Insurance Value Creation and Health Behavior Change and Rational Drug Use Management, etc. These training courses provided opportunities to health professionals to get continuing education credits that accredited on a national scale and help capacity building. The courses can also be used to train doctors and other relevant professionals in different clinical disciplines to disseminate the knowledge and skills of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research. The courses were well attended with about 300 participants consisting mostly of clinicians, pharmaceutical professionals, and health care administrators.
Through pharmaceutical evaluation research, the chapter members provided evidence-based suggestions in essential drug policy and the third party payment model of health insurance and helped forward the establishment of national essential drug system.
