ISPOR members initiate special interest groups to advance health economic and outcomes research and the use of this research in healthcare decisions. Special interest groups develop valuable tools and manuscripts for the global heath economic outcome research audience. Membership is is open to all ISPOR members.
Task forces develop ISPOR’s Good Practices for Outcomes Research Reports, which are highly cited expert consensus guidance recommendations that set international standards for outcomes research and its use in healthcare decision making. All Good Practices for Outcomes Research Reports are published in the Society’s scientific journal, Value in Health, and are made freely available as part of the Society’s mission.
Global engagement groups promote regional development of the HEOR discipline in support of the Society’s mission. Global groups include the Asia Consortium, Central and Eastern Europe Consortium, Latin America Consortium, Africa Network, Arabic Network, and more than 85 chapters around the world.
