Like the rest of the world, the pandemic has reshaped the lives and livelihoods of scientists in the health economics and outcomes research community. Many investigators in health preference research reacted by conducting empirical studies to better understand the value of health and health-related alternatives affected by COVID-19. The group identified 18 health preference studies currently under review or ongoing. On 17 June 2020, the first COVID-19 health preference research roundtable was held as an open meeting of the minds, allowing a healthy exchange of ideas between these study teams and other attendees interested in the area. From that discussion, this summary characterizes the state of science for the broader scientific community and for regulators and other decision makers looking for preference evidence regarding COVID-19.
