Through its Policy Leadership Forum, ICER convenes leading health care organizations to shape the future of evidence-based policy in the US.

Policy Leadership Forum members work together in a non-adversarial environment to contribute to the development of influential policy recommendations and provide insights into methods to strengthen real world application of evidence-based policy.

ICER selects Forum members with the goal of maintaining balance across industries to represent a broad range of organizational perspectives.  Dues go to Forum-specific activities and do not fund ICER reports. Participation in the program does not provide members with influence into ICER’s health technology assessments.

For more information on becoming a member of the Policy Leadership Forum, please contact Amanda MehlmanDirector of Strategic Partnerships.

ICER has a limited number of spots for Standard and Flagship members. For more information, see ICER Policy Leadership Forum Overview
