As part of that effort, Astellas is working with FasterCures and Avalere Health to develop a Patient-Perspective Value Framework Initiative to help provide a roadmap for how to measure value in a way that's meaningful to patients. Data informing the initiative, which Robinson will discuss on-site at the conference, includes:
