Advisory Board

ICER has an advisory board which provides strategic guidance to ICER’s leadership team. Each of ICER’s core programs also has a non-governing advisory board. Composed of leading representatives from provider groups, public and private payers, patient groups, and purchasers, the program advisory boards help ensure that all reviews are actionable for a variety of stakeholders.

Methods Advisory Group

ICER’s Methods Advisory Group (MAG) meets three times per year to provide guidance on ICER’s methods for health technology assessments and other evaluations. In the past few years, the MAG has helped to shape a data in-confidence policy, develop a pilot for a model transparency program, and comment on the process and methods for ICER’s report evaluating price increases for high impact drugs.
