The Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) has gained strength and prominence as the government and other decision-making actors in health systems consider how to provide the best possible results, at affordable costs. The International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Health Outcomes (ISPOR) is the leading global society in the field, issued a newsletter in which it identified the trends with the greatest impact called "2018 Top 10 HEOR Trends". Next, the appreciation of Dr. Diego Rosselli about the trends in Health Economics.

The rise of the health economy is a global phenomenon. All the governments of the world, as well as insurers, providers, the pharmaceutical and medical device industry, and the users of health systems (which ultimately we are all) are facing increasing costs and needs that, also , they are increasing. That is why the document that ISPOR has just produced with the attractive title of "Top 10 HEOR Trends", the ten current trends in health economics and results research, is very timely. It would be worthwhile, to give the document even more credibility, to highlight the consensual and participatory methodology that gave rise to it (obviously with Colombian participation).

Some of these "10 trends" we have lived closely in Colombia in recent years. Among them, strategies to regulate the rising prices of many innovative drugs, with mechanisms such as centralized purchasing or price regulation. The clear definition of how to accept or not the growing boom in biosimilars is another debate that has taken place here in several areas. Universal coverage, which is far from being a reality in many countries in the region, is an issue in which we also have an advantage. It is shameful to see how the United States is still far behind in this indicator of equity and, ultimately, in true social development. Perhaps we are not as prepared, in all of Latin America, as in the Old Continent, for the demographic change that lies ahead, with a population that is aging at a faster rate than the developed countries first experienced. Our hospitals, our healthcare system, and our routes of care have had to make a rapid turn to adapt to the needs imposed by chronic noncommunicable diseases. This is where epidemiology goes.

In short, the new public health imposes different paradigms, to intervene on lifestyles, to empower communities so that citizens themselves take on new challenges, many of them in prevention and no longer in therapy.

With this mouth-opener, I only hope that you consult this interesting document, so that you reflect, each one from your corner, so that you ask me what corresponds to me to do in this new way of seeing the reality of health, in its increasingly definition wide.

The Health Economics and Results Research (HEOR) has gained power and distinction among government and other stakeholders in health system decision-making, those who consider how to provide the best possible results in health and health economics, at an affordable costs. ISPOR (International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Health Outcomes) is the leading global society in the field, issued a newsletter in which identified the trends of greatest impact called «2018 Top 10 HEOR Trends».

Afterwards, you can find Diego Rosselli's appreciation about the trends in Health Economics.

The boom of health economics is a global phenomenon. Government, insurers, providers, the pharmaceutical / medical device industry and the users of the health systems (which in the end are all of us) all over the world faced increasing costs and needs in health. This is the reason why the document that has just produced ISPOR with the attractive title of «Top 10 HEOR Trends», the ten current trends in health economics and results research is very timely. It would be worth it, to give the document even more credibility, to highlight the consensus and participatory methodology that gave rise to it (obviously with Colombian participation).

Some of these «10 trends» we have been experienced closely in Colombia in recent years. Among them, strategies to regulate the rising prices of many innovative medicines, with mechanisms such as centralized procurement of drugs or price regulation. The clear definition of how to accept or not the growing biosimilar boom is another debate that has taken place here in several areas. Universal coverage in health, which is far from being a reality in many countries of the Latinamerican region, is an issue in which we also have an advantage. It is shameful to see how the United States is far behind in this indicator of equity and, ultimately, of true social development. We may not be as prepared (speaking of Latinamerica) as in the Old Continent, for the demographic change that is coming, with a population that ages at a rate greater than that experienced by developed countries first. Our hospitals, our health system, and our care routes have had to make a quick turnaround to adapt to the needs imposed by chronic non-communicable diseases. It is for there that epidemiology goes.

Briefly, the new public health policies imposes different paradigms, to influence on lifestyles, to empower communities so that citizens themselves can assume new challenges, many of them in prevention and no longer in therapy.

With this starter, I only hope that you consult this interesting document, so that you reflect, each one from your corner, so that you ask me what I have to do in this new way of seeing the reality of health, in its definition will amplified and become wider.
