The CHOICE Institute & the Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research (HICOR) Joint Seminar
On Wednesday, May 2nd, Peter Neumann, Sc.D. joined our PHEnOM seminar to discuss whether the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) is becoming the U.S.’ counterpart to England’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
PHEnOM facilitates discussion between faculty, students and researchers in the fields of health economics, econometrics and methodology development in outcomes research. NICE evaluates the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of health strategies for that country’s health system.
UW Pharmacy Alumni Association Annual Don B. Katterman Lecture
On Thursday, Dr. Neumann addressed an audience of UWSOP alumni, friends, faculty, and students on Measuring Value in Healthcare. The enlightening presentation addressed how a value can be put properly on a treatment that reduces pain, relieves symptoms, or extends life. He discussed opportunities, barriers, and trends in using formal cost- effectiveness analysis to measure value in health care and in the practice of pharmacy.
Peter is Director of the Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health at the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies at Tufts Medical Center, and Professor of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine.
