We are an international network working to improve the calculation, adoption and application of Value of Information (VoI) methods in clinical and public health research. Combined with health economics and decision-analytic modeling, VoI becomes a powerful, innovative statistical method to help decision-makers choose between an immediate decision based on the currently available evidence and delaying that decision until better evidence is available. Furthermore, VoI helps prioritize research strategies, study designs, and identify research that has substantial potential to inform policy-making and improve patient care and public health practices.
Within ConVOI, we aim to:
- Remove the barriers to using VoI analysis in practice.
- Provide training and guidance on the use of VoI.
- Develop methodological solutions to improve the application of VoI.
