  • Highly visual summary document depicts the PPVF initiative process; the five domains of patient value and how they fit together; the criteria, measures and methodological considerations that constitute each domain, and the PPVF’s proposed applications.
  • The draft methodological report is an extensive written report describing the PPVF’s proposed methodology.

We accepted comments on the draft documents through the end of 2016. There are still two ways to get involved:

  1. Partner with us to test and refine the draft PPVF’s concepts. In addition to the questionnaire, we are working with partners to test the draft PPVF’s concepts with patients via focus groups and targeted questionnaires. As we begin developing the first application, a shared decision-making tool, this direct patient input, as well as direct caregiver, provider and other input, will be critical. Please email Domitilla Masi at if you are interested in working with us to test the and refine the draft PPVF’s concepts.
  2. Partner with us to develop applications. The draft PPVF materials outline four potential types of applications, described below. Please email Domitilla Masi at if you are interested in partnering with us to develop an application.
