Event Overview
Welcome message:

Health outcomes research is essential for making effective clinical and business decisions, improving patient-reported outcomes, including health quality, and in decreasing payer costs by reducing the use of costly or ineffective treatment.

Measurement, Design, and Analysis: Methods for Health Outcomes Research is an executive program that provides professionals with the knowledge, language, and concepts that integrate public health research and statistical methods. Focusing on synthesizing findings from a wide variety of research studies, participants will enhance their capacity to provide solid evidence for the value of specific health treatments. The agenda is designed for introductory to intermediate outcomes research professionals.

This program expands participants’ capacity to design, implement, critically review, and analyze health outcomes studies as well as review and use outcomes research data for clinical decision making, health care planning, and technology development.

Who Should Participate

This program is designed for a wide variety of professionals in the field. Participants include health care providers, clinicians and nurses involved in outcomes assessment, third-party payer administrators and benefit plan sponsors, managed care and insurance providers, and researchers from the pharmaceutical, health care technology, and biotechnology industries. The program is also useful for clinicians and administrators who are new to the field but are interested in quickly expanding their capacity.

Participants must have an advanced degree (such as MD, PhD, MS, MPH, PharmD) in a relevant discipline. Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential for a successful learning experience in the program.

"The U.S. spends more than $2 trillion a year on health care, but we have little information about which treatments work best for which patients."
