ISPOR—The Professional Society for Health Economics and Outcomes Research. ISPOR Strategic Plan Update 2024. An ISPOR Strategic Report. October 2020.
ISPOR launched a Strategic Plan in 2016. When the plan was developed, ISPOR was successful and growing exponentially, but it lacked a solid infrastructure, governance, and traditional association processes that would be required for future success. With much of the 2016-2019 Strategic Plan’s foundational work completed, in 2018 ISPOR embarked on a Strategic Plan update. In this planning process, ISPOR surveyed members and other stakeholder groups, such as payers and assessors, to identify major opportunities for the Society, including taking a leadership role for HEOR globally, accelerating development of good research practices and updates, communicating to an expanded set of stakeholders, developing new membership segments and a pipeline of future members and leaders, building relationships with decision makers and influencers, and articulating how ISPOR is impacting complex healthcare system issues. This Strategic Plan Update 2024 is intended to build upon the long-time education and research focus of ISPOR by stimulating innovation in methods and development of good research practices, presenting education in global and local contexts, facilitating relevant dialogue among members and stakeholders, and communicating the impact of the application of HEOR.
