The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) has published the second in a series of articles highlighting the work of the PhRMA Foundation’s 2019 Value Assessment Challenge Award recipients.
This year’s awards honored researchers whose work focused on novel proposals to improve value assessment methods that move beyond using the quality-adjusted life year (QALY) to evaluate health care treatments. The Foundation’s 2019 awards went to researchers whose submissions answered the question, “What are innovative, patient-centered approaches to contribute to health care value assessment that move beyond the inherent limitations of analyses based on the quality-adjusted life year (QALY) metric?”
The first three of the the winning submissions have been published in AJMC, and additional award winners’ work will be published in months to come. Each of the articles is preceded by a short commentary by PhRMA Foundation President Eileen Cannon, highlighting the Foundation’s efforts to improve value assessment in the United States.
