Evidence Generation & Value Demonstration

Strengthen Your Value

With today’s focus on the “triple aim”—improving the experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing per capita costs of healthcare—demands for high-quality, accurate, and evidence-based information have never been higher. Life science companies are being asked to provide more evidence about product value, including information on effectiveness, costs, and risks of new or existing therapies. With consumers and other industry stakeholders placing an increasing emphasis on data to make their decisions, health plans and providers face a similar challenge to demonstrate value. Avalere develops, implements, and evaluates strategies for improved data collection, integration, and utilization to measure and demonstrate the value of healthcare treatments and services across the patient care continuum.
