Michael Schlander will discuss the ´Value of Laboratory Medicine in Switzerland´ at the Swiss Day of Laboratory Medicine [Tag der Labormedizin] in Berne, Switzerland, on Friday, November 03, 2023.
His presentation will outline key economic data on Swiss laboratory medicine and address the methodology used to assess the value of laboratory medicine in Switzerland. Key points will include evaluating new technology during the life cycle, using illustrative examples. Future perspectives to be highlighted are the potential of precision medicine, and the role of laboratory medicine in pre- and post-analytics. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Swiss experts.
Michael Schlander presented "Changing Perspectives on Value" in Health Technology Assessment (HTA) and discussed with Daniel Ollendorf, Magdalena Wladysiuk and Tomasz Jan Prycel “The Road Ahead for HTA” at the 18th International Evidence-Based Health Care (EBHC) Symposium in Krakow, Poland, on Monday, October 09, 2023.
Open Access Book "Nutzen der Labormedizin in der Schweiz" -- published with Springer Nature -- is now available!
While experts believe that 70 percent of all clinical decisions depend on laboratory test information (´70% claim´), the cost effectiveness of many diagnostic procedures is subject to controversial debate. With this Open Access Book, the Institute for Innovation & Valuation in Health Care provides insight into the value of laboratory medicine from a patient and societal perspective, using the Swiss health care system as a case study.
