pH associates attended the 13th Annual European ISPOR conference in Prague from 7th to 9th November. The conference was attended by over 2700 delegates from 40 countries. The ISPOR president, Scott Ramsey opened the conference with a engaging talk about the current healthcare environment in Europe and how ISPOR with it's network, tools and resources can help decision makers throughout Europe at a time when we are struggling to emerge from a serious financial downturn while at the same time facing continued pressure of rising medical care costs.

Improving the efficiency of HTA in Europe was a key focus of the conference with the challenges and practicalities of trying to harmonise the process across Europe being discussed at the first plenary session.

In the area of outcomes research there was a lot of discussion around the benefits of collecting real world data, the design of studies to ensure the correct balance of internal and external validity and the practicalities of collecting real world data. There was an interesting session discussing the relative merits of existing data sources and their applicability in the international setting.
