ISPOR Science Strategy. An ISPOR Strategic Report. March 2021.
The need has never been greater for health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) to inform healthcare decisions. Healthcare’s myriad challenges—the COVID-19 pandemic, the growth of innovative (but expensive) curative therapies, the move toward universal healthcare, the need to provide optimal health outcomes for patients within budget constraints, to name a few—combined with the increasing complexity of healthcare—bring the demand for HEOR to the forefront. The ISPOR Science Strategy is a multiyear blueprint that will guide the Society’s efforts and mission-focused initiatives. As the leading professional society for HEOR globally, ISPOR’s intention is to leverage this Science Strategy to advance the science, drive innovation in the field, and have an even greater impact on improving healthcare decisions.
