Closed workshop with involved actors to understand the challenges for stakeholders in view of a value-based health care system.
Real world data are necessary to detect and anticipate innovative treatments quickly and efficiently based on ‘big data’ analyses (machine learning, data mining pattern detection). A platform with all stakeholders to prepare tangible ‘value based’ cases, based on outcome indicators and real world based data, can contribute to a broader support among all stakeholders and, in the longer term, more efficient care.
Participants: Representatives of careproviders, patients’ platforms, pharma industry, hospitals, insurancs and sickness funds, health authorities, policymakers, researchers (academic, foundations, corporate).
