About IVI

Founded in late 2016 as a project by academics associated with Precision Health Economics, IVI sought to influence health economics and outcomes research thinkers, academics, and value assessors through policy papers, commentary, and events that made the case for novel approaches to value assessment methodologies. In 2018, IVI published its first Open-Source Value Project (OSVP) model addressing Rheumatoid Arthritis, the same year that it began to transition to a nonprofit entity. In August 2019, it was granted 501(c)(3) status, and funding transitioned from sponsorships to an organized membership program. An initial Board of Directors was appointed and helped establish organizational bylaws and policies. Since then, the organization has grown further in membership, has built out its professional staff, and has initiated collaborative research with external research partners.
