Delivering more for patients and health systems through outcomes-measurement

Today, the ABPI (Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry), ICHOM (International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement) and EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Companies and Associations) are hosting a full-day seminar in London on the role of outcomes-measurement in delivering more for patients and improving the long-term sustainability of our health systems. 

The seminar is an opportunity to further understand the opportunities of value-based healthcare and the role of outcomes measurement, exploring how value-based healthcare can support healthcare systems to meet their sustainability and transformation objectives. Focusing on outcomes addresses the central problem that healthcare systems today do not properly incentivise what actually matters: better health for patients.

Speaking on behalf of the ABPI, Chief Executive Mike Thompson said: “I am looking forward to a lively and collaborative seminar where we can share experience and discuss how to evolve the UK healthcare system to unlock the potential for an outcomes-based approach. I believe this will deliver a sustainable system that identifies productivity improvements which also whilst also appropriately recognising and rewarding the innovation our industry is so good at.”

Speaking on behalf of ICHOM, Rosna Mortuza, Director of Implementation, said “Advancing the measurement of standardised health outcomes represents a critical shift towards a more efficient and effective healthcare system for patients, payers, hospitals, and providers. Our intent is to bring together stakeholders from across the healthcare community to see how we can support that shift.”

Speaking about the seminar, EFPIA's Director General Nathalie Moll, said “We believe an outcomes-based system will do a better job of stimulating and rewarding innovation. The innovation that benefits patients most, and supports health system sustainability. Implementing more outcomes-focused and value-based healthcare models requires dialogue and collaboration between all stakeholders from across the healthcare community. Together, we can create a healthier future for Europe.”
