Improving Healthcare Decisions
ISPOR is dedicated to improving healthcare decision making. We believe that every healthcare decision should be informed by the best scientific research. Toward that goal, the Society’s mission is to promote health economics and outcomes research excellence to improve decision making for health globally.
ISPOR—The Professional Society for Health Economics and Outcomes Research
ISPOR—the professional society for health economics and outcomes research (HEOR)—is an international, multistakeholder, nonprofit organization. The Society is the leading source for scientific conferences, peer-reviewed and MEDLINE®-indexed publications, good practices guidance, education, collaboration, and tools/resources in the HEOR field.
The Global HEOR Community
As the field of HEOR has grown in importance, ISPOR's community has expanded to more than 19,000 individual and chapter members from 110+ countries worldwide. The Society’s membership includes a wide variety of healthcare stakeholders, including researchers and academicians, assessors and regulators, payers and policy makers, the life sciences industry, healthcare providers, and patient engagement organizations. The Society has served as an unbiased resource and catalyst for innovation in the field for more than 25 years.
Strategic Objectives and Goals
The Society’s strategic platform—ISPOR Strategic Plan Update 2024—was developed by its Strategic Planning Working Group.
