Value in Health Vision Statement
Value in Health should duplicate ISPOR’s objectives to have the journal reflect the highest scientific quality as possible in the areas of methodological research and health care sciences, services, and policy, whilst maintaining the already broad appeal to the journal it has already attained, and continuing contributions from many world leaders associated with NICE, CMS, and major private health insurers around the globe.

In addition to his work on federal grants, Professor Mullins has designed many cost-effectiveness analyses and budget impact models for both the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.  He is co-Editor-in-Chief for Value in Health and is author/co-author of nearly 150 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on pharmacoeconomics, outcomes research, and pharmaceutical policy and health disparities research in journals such as The American Journal of Managed Care, The American Journal of Public Health, Cancer, Chest, The Journal of Trauma, Health Services Research, Pharmacoeconomics, Social Science & Medicine, and Transplantation.  Dr. Mullins was a member of the Maryland Health Care Commission Hospital and Ambulatory Surgical Facility Report Card Steering Committee.  Prior to his graduate studies, he was an Actuary and Market Researcher for the John Hancock Insurance Company.  In 2002, he was the recipient of an Outstanding Service Award from the Drug Information Association (DIA) and in 2006 and 2008 he received an International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) Service Award.  In 2007, he received the Dr. Patricia Sokolove Outstanding Mentor Award from the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus-wide Graduate Student Association.

Value in Health Vision Statement
As the journal of ISPOR, Value in Health should be viewed as interdependent of the Society and mirror its aim to enhance the methods and applications within the fields of pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research, with its content reflecting research that is read and used for medical decision making and reflect empirical applications of readable, reliable, and advanced methodologies with actionable results and conclusions.
