What is Pharmaceutical Value Assessment and Communications?

A scientific approach to defining value and producing effective, evidence-based writing.

We are not a journalism program. We are:

  • Applied, not theoretical.
  • Focused on payer, provider and regulatory audiences, not patient-facing communications.
  • Heavily concentrated on evidence assessment and data-driven value propositions.
  • Powered by health economics and outcomes research.
