The ISPOR Presentations Database is one of the most utilized HEOR resources that the Society offers. It includes more than 50,000 citable research abstracts of podium and poster presentations from ISPOR conferences that are also published in Value in Health beginning in 1998. The new ISPOR Presentations Database has now been enhanced to include non-citable session presentations including plenaries, workshops, and issue panels from the Society’s conferences from the past 3 years. It is also optimized for mobile and offers enhanced search functionality with newly refined taxonomy classifications to provide users with a more useful, comprehensive HEOR search tool. The ISPOR Presentations Database is freely available to all at www.ispor.org/presentationsdb.

ISPOR Research Presentation Awards
Awards will be given for the best research presentations for podiums and posters in the categories of GENERAL, NEW INVESTIGATOR, and STUDENT (up to 3 in each category). All research podium presentations are considered for an award. The top 10% of research poster presentations, based on abstract review score, are considered for a poster presentation award. These posters are identified with a ribbon and will be judged during the Conference. Award recipients will be notified by email and recognized on the ISPOR website at the conclusion of the conference.
