S4-19.5 - Teasing the Difference Between Patient Advocate Voice and Patient Advocate Vote
Patient advocates and friends of the podcast Mike Betel (Fatty Liver Alliance), Tony Villiotti (NASHkNOWledge) and Wayne Eskridge (Fatty Liver Foundation) join co-hosts Louise Campbell and Roger Green to share a range of impressions on a public comments session around the draft report released by the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) on resmetirom and obeticholic acid for NASH. In this final conversation, each describes the most important thing they would like ICER to learn before another NASH drug analysis.

Patient advocates and friends of the podcast Mike Betel (Fatty Liver Alliance), Tony Villiotti (NASHkNOWledge) and Wayne Eskridge (Fatty Liver Foundation) join co-hosts Louise Campbell and Roger Green to share a range of impressions on a public comments session around the draft report released by the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) on resmetirom and obeticholic acid for NASH.

This final conversation focuses on the most important thing each panelist would like ICER to learn before another NASH drug analysis. In our first conversation with Jeff McIntyre, he said that it while it was appreciated that patients have a voice, it’s not the same as having a vote. The patient advocate comments in this conversation make it clear exactly how wide the gap between the two is right now. Fortunately, as Veronica miller noted during that preceding episode, ICER reporting has no impact on FDA decisions. However, as we discuss during this conversation, it might have an impact on payers.
