TRANSPERS focuses on four areas of research:

  1. Systematic Evidence Reviews of Payer Coverage Policies: TRANSPERS Systematic Reviews of Payer Coverage Policies contain coverage, reimbursement and policy decisions by payers.
  2. Understanding Payer Decision-Making: TRANSPERS Payer Advisory Board, established in 2007, is comprised of private payers and thought leaders.
  3. Quantifying the Value of Precision Medicine-related technologies and the implications of adoption.
  4. Health Disparities: Equity and Access of Precision Medicine.

Our Payer Coverage research is based on a conceptual framework of Stakeholders, Topics, and Mechanisms & Capabilities as shown in the figure.
