Activity Description

Payers face significant and growing costs with oncology treatments. Real-world evidence, such as real-world observational studies, patient-reported outcomes, and economic models, can potentially help payers in their coverage and formulary decision-making. Typically, only economic modeling studies are available at launch and observational studies and patient-reported outcomes are only available after a year or more, if at all.

In this session, participants will learn the types of real-world evidence used by payers and how that data is incorporated into their decision-making, identify any real-world evidence currently being generated by payer organizations, and examine which economic models are deemed most useful to payers. In addition, this session will highlight the results of national payer surveys designed to reveal payer usage of real-world evidence in oncology decision-making.
