Signal—ISPOR’s new signature program—looks beyond today’s linear thinking to explore topics that will shape healthcare decision making over the next decade. Seeking to strengthen strategic foresight and adaptive leadership capacities in the complex world of healthcare, the Signal series focuses on the “big picture,” while also addressing how health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) can best contribute to solving healthcare’s greatest challenges.
Signal episodes are scheduled throughout the year and feature conversations with speakers who are innovative thought leaders and change makers in both healthcare and other sectors of economy, science disciplines, and areas of human inquiry that can impact healthcare.
Future episodes and speaker names will be added as confirmed and registration for them will open soon.
