Date:1/24/2008

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans, today issued a statement on the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) recommendation to create a national program that would evaluate the effectiveness of healthcare products and services:

"Patients deserve to know not only what medical treatments work, but which treatments work best. With new treatments and technologies introduced each day, providers need a dependable and trusted source of information that provides useful guidance on treatment options available. A national entity to compare the effectiveness of new technologies will help the nation evaluate what works, what doesn't and how best to allocate resources.

"Last year, health insurance plans proposed the establishment of a national entity to evaluate new and existing health care treatments and technologies. Today's recommendation by the IOM adds further momentum toward this objective."
