PIPC Statement on Federal CER Coordinating Council
Date:3/19/2009

Partnership urges new federal coordinating council to provide full openness and transparency

WASHINGTON, March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tony Coelho, Chairman of the Partnership to Improve Patient Care (PIPC) released today the following statement concerning the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' announcement of members of the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research:

"PIPC applauds HHS for moving rapidly to appoint a list of accomplished health care experts as members of the Federal Coordinating Council, and for including representatives of the minority and disability communities. As required by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, this Council can play a valuable role in coordinating various research activities throughout the federal government.

"PIPC urges the Coordinating Council to operate in a manner that is open and transparent and allows members of the health care community including patients, providers, people with disabilities, and minority organizations to participate in the process. This will foster public accountability, and help ensure that the Council's activities are consistent with its mandate, and that it does not, as required in statute, impose national coverage restrictions or practice standards based on results of CER studies.

"If the federal coordinating council operates in a transparent manner, provides all healthcare stakeholders with a voice at the table and focuses on patient needs, our healthcare system will be well on its way to reform that benefits all Americans."

The Partnership to Improve Patient Care is a diverse group of healthcare organizations - representing patients, physicians and other health care providers, researchers and innovators, and other groups - that have come together to promote comparative effectiveness research that supports patient access and informed health care decision-making and fosters continued medical progress. PIPC is lead by a Steering Committee of nine groups that represent the partnership's diverse members.
