Value Analysis: Best Practices for Navigating the Evidence Maze is a free, onsite seminar for hospitals, health systems, and payers. It features value analysis insight, case studies, and best practices presented by our technology assessment and pricing teams, and invited experts. This educational program, hosted by Cambridge Health Alliance, is designed to help you:

  • Understand best practices for value analysis
  • Apply PICOTS (patients, intervention, comparators, outcomes, timeframe for follow-up, setting), the analytic framework that provides context for product requests
  • Benchmark your practices against those of your peers
  • Simplify value analysis with ECRI Institute’s ValuVu™, which integrates ECRI's trusted clinical evidence, pricing, and safety data in an easy-to-use workflow application

This free in-person event is open only to hospitals and health systems, primarily to individuals in supply chain and value analysis, and payers. Registrations from medical device or pharmaceutical industry representatives, or independent consultants, will not be accepted.
