IntroductionGiven(i) the recent impressive digital transformation worldwide, the importance of data has reached a new dimension. It is, therefore, provocative to ask whether data can save healthcare systems from bankruptcy.Areas covered: We reviewed published examples in the search for the evidence on how the growing amount of data could change the way we used to assess the value of healthcare technologies, ensuring a more holistic approach in the decision-making process while reducing the waste in the healthcare.Expert Opinion: The growing amount of data will continue to provide a multitude of valuable insights that can save healthcare systems from bankruptcy. Electronic medical records, IoT, wearables, and mobile applications generate constant data streams that can be utilised endlessly thanks to methodological advancements such as SNA, unsupervised and supervised machine learning, and natural language programming. However, interoperability across these multiple data sources still pose a challenge for the future development of data-driven healthcare. Already today however, decision makers can utilize Big Data to develop conditional coverage schemes for very expensive and complicated health technologies suitable for personalized healthcare. More advanced payers may utilise even data analytics even further and develop AI-based pricing schemes.

: Research and innovation in personalized medicine (PM) are extensive and expanding, with several pharmacogenetic/pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing options currently available for a wide range of health problems. However, PGx-guided therapy faces many barriers to full integration into clinical practice and acceptance by practitioner/patient: utilization and uptake by payers in real-world practice are being discussed, and the criteria to guide clinicians and policy makers in PGx test selection are no...

Understanding how relationships are structured in physician networks provides insights into how these networks influence physicians’ beliefs and behaviors. This understanding would help improve strategies for disseminating medical information and guidelines. But most physician social networks mainly focus on a binary relationship where either one physician is connected or not connected to another physician without any description about the strength of the relationship. This binary relationship c...

Personalized medicine uses fine grained information on individual persons, to pinpoint deviations from the normal. ‘Digital Twins’ in engineering provide a conceptual framework to analyze these emerging data-driven health care practices, as well as their conceptual and ethical implications for therapy, preventative care and human enhancement. Digital Twins stand for a specific engineering paradigm, where individual physical artifacts are paired with digital models that dynamically reflects the s...

The potential for multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) to support health technology assessment (HTA) has been much discussed, and various HTA agencies are piloting or applying MCDA. Alongside these developments, good practice guidelines for the application of MCDA in health care have been developed. An assessment of current applications of MCDA to HTA in light of good practice guidelines reveals, however, that many have methodologic flaws that undermine their usefulness. Three challenges are ...

Social network analysis quantifies and visualizes relationships between and among individuals or organizations. Applications in the health sector remain underutilized. This systematic review seeks to analyze what social network methods have been used to study professional communication and performance among healthcare providers. Ten databases were searched from 1990 through April 2016, yielding 5970 articles screened for inclusion by two independent reviewers who extracted data and critically ap...

‘Value-based’ outcomes, pricing, and reimbursement are widely discussed as health sector reforms these days. In this paper, we discuss their meaning and relationship in the context of personalized healthcare, defined as receipt of care conditional on the results of a biomarker-based diagnostic test. We address the question: “What kinds of pricing and reimbursement models should be applied in personalized healthcare?” The simple answer is that competing innovators and technology adopters should h...

Escalating drug prices have catalysed the generation of numerous “value frameworks” with the aim of informing payers, clinicians and patients on the assessment and appraisal process of new medicines for the purpose of coverage and treatment selection decisions. Although this is an important step towards a more inclusive Value Based Assessment (VBA) approach, aspects of these frameworks are based on weak methodologies and could potentially result in misleading recommendations or decisions.
