Valuing a Cure: Draft Methods Adaptations
On August 6, 2019, ICER released this draft set of methods adaptations to its value framework to be applied in the assessment of potential cures and other treatments that qualify as “single or short-term transformative therapies,” or SSTs. While these proposals do not fundamentally alter ICER’s approach to value assessment, they are intended to equip decision makers with a more reliable and transparent evaluation of SSTs’ uncertainty, value, and value-based pricing. A companion technical brief is available here.
The proposed adaptations will complement and build upon ICER’s ongoing update to our 2020 value assessment framework.
