Making HEOR More Accessible to Patients

Written on Thursday 20th October 2022

There is a deepening recognition of the value of engaging patients, their caregivers, and their advocacy organizations as partners to promote an understanding of burden and patient need, and thereby inform evidence generation and value argumentation. Whilst patients are becoming more attuned to data, evidence, and outcomes, the scientific and technical world of HEOR can be awash in acronyms and jargon. To engage with patient communities and invite them to be increasingly involved in HEOR activities, Pharma must make it more accessible to them.
