Abstract

Value assessment is an integral component of decision making in health and is the focus of this themed section of Value in Health. The Special Task Force Report [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7] considers a range of issues, both conceptual and practical, albeit limited to the US realities (more on this later), that arise in cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit studies of health care—particularly, though not only, in the context of designing or enlarging public health insurance schemes. Settling these is important but contentious. As a start, this themed section includes four perspectives from key experts, representing payers [8], patients [9], academia [10], and the pharmaceutical industry [11]. These perspectives have not been peer-reviewed by the journal in the conventional sense, and therefore should be considered as either personal or professional reflections on the report.
