Award Winners

The ISPOR Research Presentation Podium and Poster Awards were established in 1998 to recognize the scientific merit of podium and poster presentations at ISPOR’s conferences.

ISPOR Judges evaluated podium and poster presentations within the top 5% of accepted abstracts, which were based on abstract peer reviewed scores, and were eligible for a presentation award.

Evaluations of scientific merit were based upon the following criteria:


  • Research design is appropriate and transparent
  • Data sources are appropriate and transparent
  • Data analyses are appropriate and transparent
  • Results are included and are transparent and comprehensible
  • Uncertainty of results is addressed appropriately
  • Conclusions are consistent with the results


  • Objectives/research questions are clearly stated, and objectives are addressed
  • Factual information is kept separate from interpretations or implications / unbiased presentations
  • Implications, as presented, are easy to understand
  • Clarity of presentation
