Summary of "New Challenges in Oncology for the Brazilian Private Health Sector: Specialists' Concerns After the ISPOR International Congress in Boston, Massachusetts, 2017."

The congress of the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research is one of the main worldwide forums for the dissemination of research and knowledge on healthcare economics. Brazil is the largest country in Latin America, with a per-capita gross domestic product of $15 200 in 2017 and healthcare expenditure of the order of $1 318 per inhabitant. Brazilian specialists participated actively in the society's latest congress, which took place in Boston, Massachusetts, from May 20 to 24, 2017. They met to discuss the main topics dealt with at the congress and their applicability to Brazilian realities. The topics chosen were precision medicine, new challenges for economic modeling within oncology and immuno-oncology, data to aid in managerial decision making (ie, data from real-world studies), and, lastly, strategies for accessing high-cost medications in Brazil. This opinion article sought to report the main conclusions and consensus reached by this group of specialists on the occasion of this discussion.
