WELCOME TO IMSTA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2018

TIME FOR ACTION: focusing on outcomes measurement 

 

Welcome to IMSTA’s Annual Conference 2018 which will focus on outcomes measurement.   

Our excellent speakers will discuss how Ireland measures up, what will it take to make Slaintecare a reality, an example of using HTA as a driver,  and the HSE’s plans for assessing the potential of medtech to improve outcomes.  We will also hear about Value-based health care in Wales and how to Build a better health service.

IMSTA is pleased to welcome back again this year Dr. Thomas Kelly of ICHOM, the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement.  IMSTA, in conjunction ICHOM, believe outcomes are the ultimate measure of success in health care.   When seeking treatment, patients want to know what their life will be like after treatment: will I return to work, will I be able to take care of myself, and will my symptoms improve?  

“ICHOM’s mission is to unlock the potential of value-based health care by defining global Standard Sets of outcome measures that really matter to patients for the most relevant medical conditions and bydriving adoption and reporting of these measures worldwide.”

This promises to be a very stimulating conference and we are pleased to announce that our MC for this year will be Lise Hand, Journalist and Political Commentator. 

Make sure you have this date in your Diary and join us for a very interesting and informative day.
