ECRI Institute's Conference Examines Comparative Effectiveness of Health Interventions

June 18, 2007 — ECRI Institute's 15th Annual Conference, Comparative Effectiveness of Health Interventions: Strategies to Change Policy and Practice will take place on October 17-18, 2007.

The conference, held in Washington D.C. will provide insight into comparative effectiveness methods, management, diffusion to policy and practice, and underlying thinking among multiple constituencies.

Comparative effectiveness, the concept of comparing the effectiveness of different clinical modalities, is being weighed as a major policy initiative by federal policymakers and many constituencies within healthcare. It may have sweeping implications for how the nation evaluates and pays for competing approaches to patient care.

The conference will seek answers with the help of the nation's leading experts in this emerging field and will be preceded by a methodology preconference on October 16.

More than 25 speakers representing public and private payers, regulators, health systems, drug and device researchers, clinical providers, and the legal community will examine issues in three broad areas, including:
-Making the Case for Comparative Effectiveness,
-Who Needs to Do What to Make Comparative Effectiveness Effective?
-Will the Public Accept Comparative Effectiveness, and What Will Policymakers Do?
