While headlines often highlight the price of an individual medical product, the calculation of value is more complex and warrants consideration of many factors, including total costs of care and how well that care meets an individual patient's needs and expectations. In this workshop, participants will hear from experts on the landscape of value frameworks, with case studies on the ASCO Value Framework for oncology drugs and the ICER Emerging Therapy Assessment and Pricing Program report on PCSK9 inhibitor therapies for high cholesterol drugs. The audience will discuss how the frameworks address patient perceptions of value. The session will specifically address questions on how value assessment frameworks from payers and other organizations should involve the patient in design and use.
