Comparative-effectiveness how-to

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is circulating a 1draft guide for conducting comparative-effectiveness reviews of medical technology and treatments.

Comparative-effectiveness research has become a hot topic among policymakers who see potential cost-savings from better informed treatment guidelines, and a Medicare package bill expected to be introduced this year could provide funding for a new comparative-effectiveness center (2"The Gray Sheet" Oct. 1, 2007, p. 12). Comments on AHRQ's draft guide are due Nov. 7
