Patient-Driven Values in Healthcare Evaluation (PAVE) is committed to developing sustainable partnerships with stakeholders and the patient community.
PAVE is actively working to expand our partnerships in underserved and uninsured patient communities.
About Our Funder:
PAVE is supported by the PhRMA Foundation Value Assessment program, which supports the development of multidisciplinary, collaborative Centers of Excellence to build evidence, tools, and partnerships to inform value assessment strategies and value-driven decision making.
The Center Awards are designed to improve patient outcomes while reducing inefficiencies in health care by better assessing the value of medicines and health care services.
This three-minute video explains why it is important that the patient's perspective be included in value assessments, and how PAVE is working to address the gaps that exist in this critical area.
