As governments and other payers struggle with provision of the best possible health outcomes at affordable costs, the field of health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) has experienced rapid growth. The International Society for Pharmacoeconomics Outcomes Research (ISPOR) produced the ISPOR 2019 Top 10 HEOR Trends which serves to outline the top 10 that the Society members identified that will be the most impactful during 2019. Development of this report included a comprehensive review and collation of potential trends for consideration, surveys of ISPOR’s thought leaders to provide rankings of the topics, and selection of the top 10 trends at the Society’s 21st Annual European Congress in November 2018. Topics in the top 10 include drug spending and pricing, universal health coverage and access equity, real-world evidence, aging population, price transparency, big data, value assessment frameworks, healthcare decision making in low-income countries, personalized/precision medicine, and unhealthy behaviors.
