    Dear Colleagues,

    As we celebrate ISPORs past accomplishments during our 20th Anniversary year, we are looking to a very bright future with our new strategic plan, updating Vision 2020.

    Beginning with a planning session last winter, the Societys Board of Directors and other leaders have been involved in crafting new Vision and Mission Statements, along with updating the areas of strategic focus. The evolving plan focuses on ISPORs ongoing commitment to strengthen the integrity, advancement, and understanding of health economics and outcomes research globally.

    I am proud to share with you the Mission and Vision Statements approved by the ISPOR Board of Directors. The new ISPOR Mission Statement is:

    To promote health economics and outcomes research excellence to improve decision making for health globally.

    In updating our new Vision and Mission Statement we emphasize the work that we do as researchers, payers, decision and policy makers, academicians, clinicians, and patients.

    The previous Mission Statement, To increase the efficiency, effectiveness, and fairness of health care to improve health, did not focus specifically on health economic and outcomes research. We also wanted to reinforce our position as a global organization.

    Our new Vision Statement:

    ISPOR is the leading global scientific and educational organization for health economics and outcomes research and their use in decision making to improve health.

    The previous Vision Statement, ISPOR is recognized globally as the authority for outcomes research and its use in health care decisions towards improved health, did not include the importance of ISPORs role as a leading educational organization.

    Along with the Vision and Mission, the Board approved 5 Strategic Pillars that support our Vision and Mission.

    SCIENTIFIC AND RESEARCH EXCELLENCE ISPOR is committed to strengthening the integrity, advancement and the understanding and use of health economics and outcomes research among researchers, health technology developers and assessors, regulators, health economists, health care policy makers, payers, providers, patients, populations, and society.

    MEMBER ENGAGEMENT Through its worldwide membership and stakeholder groups, ISPOR has access to the ideas, knowledge, skills, and experiences that enable achievement of its mission. ISPOR offers membership benefits that are valued and essential in members professional growth.

    EDUCATION AND TRAINING Knowledge and skill building are at the core of the ISPOR mission. ISPOR will lead efforts to strengthen and expand capabilities in health economics and outcomes research.

    COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION ISPOR will be a valued and reliable resource for translating knowledge into practice for decision makers and stakeholders who include members, providers, payers, patients, professional societies, foundations, health authorities, the media, and others.

    ORGANIZATIONAL VALUES ISPOR embraces a core set of values and standards that underlie all that we do.

    Over the next months, the plan with accompanying goal statements will be shared with the membership.

    A special thank you to CEO and Executive Director Nancy Berg and her staff for driving this planning process, that involved dozens of members in a condensed time frame.

    I personally invite you to join us at the Member Meeting, Updating ISPOR Vision 2020,on Tuesday, November 10 at the 18th Annual European Congress in Milan, Italy where I will present the plan and engage members in discussing the future of our Society.
