Since inception, IVI has championed a focus on patient-centered outcomes and preferences as drivers of change, emphasized modern thinking about methods and value elements that should be included in value assessment models, and advocated for transparent, open-source model development to improve dialogue and build trust between users, decision-makers, and patient communities.

IVI is governed by our Board of Directors, with input from our Scientific Advisory Panel and our Patient Advisory Council. All Board members are required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest, and must recuse themselves from any decision involving a potential conflict. For a copy of our Conflict of Interest Policy, Nonprofit Determination Letter, Bylaws or 990, please contact
