Virtual ISPOR Conferences

ISPOR Latin America Summit | 30 September and 1 October

HEOR and a New Era of Transformation for Latin America Health Systems

Gain a clear understanding of how health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) can be used to improve healthcare decision making for the Latin America region in a new era. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought profound disruption to healthcare in the Latin America region, particularly to the already overburdened and underfunded public healthcare systems. However, the pandemic also has served as a catalyst for bold transformation of those health systems. HEOR is poised to play a critical role in helping systems achieve greater efficiency and sustainability, establish stronger linkages between evidence and policy making, and enhance health equity and access.
