Project Description

The Value of Treatment

Disorders of the brain rank among the world’s leading causes of ill-health and disability. Europe, particularly, has a high burden and frequency of brain disorders. Early detection and intervention are key to achieve optimal treatment results in individuals at risk and patients. Analysing the treatment gap and underlying causes along the continuum of care remains central in the Value of Treatment Study. The research framework was designed by the EBC Board in collaboration with Academic Partners. Discussions on health care focus too often on the increase of health-care cost rather than on the benefits of better health. Therefore, emphasi­zing the need to measure value in brain disorders care delivery from all perspectives is important. This model, when applied, enables healthcare systems to think more long-term, away from siloes and toward integrated disease management.

ABOUT THE VALUE OF TREATMENT PROJECT

EBC is coordinating the VOT research project to ensure:

  1. Consistent and rigorous methodology
  2. Direct follow-up with the case study Working Groups with regard to analysis, interpretation of data and reporting
  3. Harmonization of the findings based on a standardized approach.

Findings of the analysis will be reported at an EBC final conference to a wide audience, including policymakers, regulators and payers.
