Building on the success of our inaugural program in 2007, CBI’s 2nd Annual Forum on Evidence-Based Medicine focuses on the increased demand that pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies demonstrate value to justify a product’s place in the market.
The goal of the Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Evidence-Based Medicine is that by the year 2020, ninety percent of clinical decisions will be supported by accurate, timely and up-to-date clinical information, and will reflect the best available evidence, according to Dr. Michael McGinnis, IOM Senior Scholar, Executive Director of the IOM Roundtable on EBM and 2007 Forum Speaker.
As the industry strives to meet that goal – whether demanded by the government, reimbursement authorities or others – challenges and questions surrounding EBM remain. At the 2nd Annual Forum, interact with industry thought-leaders to gain insight as to how to improve your company’s efforts in developing and effectively using evidence to support your product value propositions.
Topics being researched for 2008 include:
• AHRQ’s Effective Healthcare Program and influence of Evidence-based Practice Centers
• Comparative Effectiveness – Reviews to justify value and the political outlook for a proposed U.S. entity
• Reimbursement authorities’ use of EBM for coverage decisions
• Methodologies to gather evidence including Patient Reported Outcomes
• Cost Effectiveness reviews
• Applications of EBM in current practice
