Value Assessment Initiative
The PhRMA Foundation’s Value Assessment Initiative promotes the development of advanced value-assessment so decision makers have better tools to assess high- and low-value care in the U.S. health system. The initiative funds new research and innovative efforts to assess the value of medicines and health care services, improve patient outcomes and reduce inefficiency. Learn more.
