Payers are in a unique perspective to drive the use of evidence in practice. Whether through coverage decisions, utilization review, or coinsurance, there are many strategies payers use to reflect the value of specific therapies within the marketplace. So, what information do payers feel they need to guide these efforts? Raj Sabharwal, M.P.H., Director at AcademyHealth will discuss his article “Developing Evidence That Is Fit for Purpose: A Framework for Payer and Research Dialogue,” which describes efforts to develop and refine a decision-making framework that considers payers’ perspectives on the utility of evidence generated by different types of research methods, including real-world evidence. Panelists from the National Pharmaceutical Council and AcademyHealth’s Corporate Council and will provide insight into the decision-making framework and will provide perspectives from their own institutions.
