Be a Part of the Open-Source Process
Models developed as part of IVI’s Open-Source Value Platform (OSVP) serve as a hands-on “laboratory” for improving methods, resolving scientific questions, and engaging in an ongoing public discussion about value in healthcare. This iterative process is made possible by an ongoing cycle of public feedback, expert review, revision, and re-release.
The IVI Open-Source Development Process
A Fully Transparent Process
Transparency is a key principal of the Open-Source Value Platform and essential to the open-source development process. In addition to making all modeling code and methods available for public download and use, IVI makes the feedback, review, and revision process fully transparent. All feedback received on IVI’s OSVP models is made publicly available following the end of the public comment period. Similarly, the results of the Technical Expert Panel’s review and recommendations are publicly released, and IVI’s planned revisions in response are shared ahead of the subsequent model release.
