“Value” is at the center of discussions of payment and policy, but value has different definitions and meanings reflecting the diversity of stakeholders in the healthcare system.

As part of our ongoing efforts to foster discussion about this important concept in health policy, Health Affairs sponsored a forum on September 13, 2017 in Washington, DC for policymakers to examine various frameworks for formally defining and measuring value and discuss the public policy issues and strategies attendant to their use.  The panels were:

*Many Stakeholders, Many Values: Measuring Value In A Diverse Healthcare Marketplace

*What’s Next For Value-Based Reimbursement In Healthcare?


 Health Affairs is grateful to the Innovation and Value Initiative for its generous support of the event.
