Value frameworks are tools and approaches that seek to compare and quantify the positives, negatives, and costs for one or more treatments to assess which seems to be the best choice. Value frameworks and supporting models can help advance the national dialogue on value in health care, but only if they incorporate the patient voice throughout.
The National Health Council, with stakeholder input, has created a Value Model Rubric to help evaluate the patient centeredness of value models and to guide value model developers on the meaningful incorporation of patient engagement throughout their processes.
Recently NHC presented "Improving The Patient Centricity Of Value Assessments: A Rubric" at HTAi’s 14th Annual Meeting on June 17-21, 2017 at the Ergife Palace Hotel in Rome, Italy. Click here to view the slide presentation.
The National Health Council, with multi-stakeholder input, has created the Value Framework Get-Ready Checklist to help patients and patient groups become more engaged in discussions on value, and with value framework developers regarding ways in which they can better consider the patient perspective.
