PIPC Outlines CER Principles in Letter to President-Elect Obama
Date:1/12/2009

Partnership of Patient, Provider and Industry Groups Calls for CER to Include Consideration of Diversity, Examine All Areas of Health Care

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Federally-supported comparative effectiveness research can be a valuable tool to improve health care decision-making, and must be structured to ensure it is centered on patient and provider needs, according to the Partnership to Improve Patient Care (PIPC).

In letters to President-elect Obama and congressional leaders, PIPC outline a series of principles that should be taken into consideration as the incoming Administration and the new Congress consider the issue of comparative effectiveness research (CER). PIPC asked the incoming President and Congress to advance CER legislation that focuses on communicating research findings to patients and health care providers; reflects racial and ethnic diversity; accounts for differences in patients' clinical needs and preferences; studies clinical outcomes; and examines all aspects of health care.

"We believe that well-designed comparative effectiveness research can be a valuable tool in meeting our health care challenges and supporting high quality clinical decision-making," PIPC said in the letter. "Proposals to expand government-supported CER, if appropriately structured, can benefit patients by supporting health care decisions that best meet individual needs, improve overall quality of care and support continued medical progress."

The letter was released at a PIPC sponsored forum titled "The Importance of Well Designed Comparative Effectiveness Research" held at the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC. The complete text of the letter is attached below.

The Partnership to Improve Patient Care was formed in November 2008 to support proposals to expand the government's role in comparative effectiveness research that are centered on patient and provider nee
