Health Economics and Patient Value

The Health Economics & Patient Value (HEPV) initiative helps patients thrive by speeding access to safe medical devices and amplifying the patient voice in treatment options. HEPV:

– Creates predictable and transparent evidence requirements for coverage

– Improves pathways for coverage, coding, and payment.

Collaborating to Shorten the Path from Innovation to Coverage and Payment

Multiple stakeholders collaborate through HEPV to facilitate dialogue, create consensus, and conduct research on key topics related to coverage and payment decisions. Stakeholders include:

– Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services(CMS)

– Commercial payers

– FDA

– Health technology assessment organizations

– Medical device and diagnostics companies

– Patient advocacy groups
