Conversations with the Academy Series continues to garner promising participation by the global learning community
The December event in the series featured an eminent panel exploring evolving Health Economics Outcomes Research (HEOR) concepts, driven by the changing healthcare landscape and increasing expectations to demonstrate value. Dr. Laurent Pacheco, Managing Director, Syneos Health Consulting; Dr. Seema Haider, International HEOR Advisor; and Dr. Jennifer Stephens, Partner, and Clinical Director, Pharmerit, addressed the challenges and trends in the healthcare market across the globe, with the HEOR audience expanding beyond payers and Health Technology Assessment (HTA) bodies, to a variety of stakeholders, including patients and regulators.
Physicians need HEOR data to inform their treatment decisions to meet the healthcare needs of patients best. Importantly, HEOR brings a real-world perspective. As countries adopt universal healthcare systems and develop HTA frameworks, they need transparent, understandable, and effectively communicated HEOR data to help inform healthcare decision making.
The panel highlighted perspectives to better deliver and communicate HEOR information and real-world data. They emphasize cross-functional collaboration in biopharmaceuticals, patient centricity, and leveraging digital transformation.

The most recent discussion, Real World Evidence and Real-World Data: from Disease Management to Evaluating Drug Safety and Effectiveness, on January 28th, seeks to analyze the rapidly increasing interest and relevance of real-world evidence to answer clinical, regulatory, and policy-pertinent questions, which cannot be wholly or directly addressed by traditional randomized controlled trials. The recording will be made available soon on IFAPP Academy’s YouTube page.
As always, we express our sincere appreciation for the keen insights from our expert faculty and hosts. Furthermore, we are motivated by your active participation at these events.
