Todd Berner works as Vice President of Global Medical Affairs for a gene therapy clinic. Throughout his career in the healthcare industry, he has been committed to delivering quality and value, initially improving quality in women’s health from a clinical capacity, and then, for the past 10 years within the pharmaceutical industry, working on health outcomes research at the patient level.
Todd Berner is particularly proud of the collaboration in which he has participated as the Co-chair of the Good Practices and Patient Engagement in Research Special Interest Group for International Society For Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR). Specifically Todd has been instrumental in the efforts to define the standards for the organizations Good Practices for Patient Engagement in Outcomes Research. At ISPOR, he is also responsible for facilitating and leading stakeholders in North America and Europe.
Todd hopes to bring the patients themselves, and their representatives, to center stage of Outcomes Research initiatives. He considers it paramount to provide patients with a voice and with a seat at the table within these research projects, from conceptualization to dissemination.
He also serves a Stakeholder Reviewer for the Patient-Centered Outcome Research Institute (PCORI), was co-chair of the 3rd Partnering with the Accountable Care Organization’s Summit, and as a Manuscript Review for a number of organizations, was Senior Fellow at the School of Population Health at Thomas Jefferson University, and Chaired the Pharmacy Quality Alliance Palliative Care and Pain Management Working Group.
Todd is attempting to identify what matters most to patients, and changes the healthcare industry should implement to improve the quality of care for varied stakeholders. He recognizes the need to package customized plans on behalf of patients based on individual needs. The methods that are currently employed in healthcare delivery are strikingly inefficient, squandering money, time, and resources.
Todd resides in the Boston area where he enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife and children. He’s a fan of soccer, ardently supporting both the United States Men’s National Team, and Tottenham in the Premier League.
