The US Value Evidence and Outcomes organization is leading efforts to increase the US business’s ability to generate, analyze and use real world data and evidence to support the development and commercialization of our medicines.

The US environmental demands for value demonstration continues to increase, with external stakeholders and decision makers increasingly requiring evidence demonstrating comparative clinical, economic, and humanistic benefits of our medicine at the time of launch, and thereafter. There are several external stakeholders incl. regulators, value assessment bodies issuing guidance, frameworks and standards related to the use of these data types, analytical methods, and the overall value assessment of medicines. This is further heightened with the recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in the US, formalizing the role of value assessment in the later stages of the life cycle.
