Patients Will Benefit From Comparative Effectiveness Funding in Stimulus Bill
Date:2/11/2009

Information on health safety and efficacy a building block for health reform

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), today issued the following statement on the comparative effectiveness funding included in the Senate-passed stimulus bill:

"At a time when access to quality, affordable health care is a serious concern for many Americans, it is critical that our country make investments to create a sustainable health care system. We must also ensure that patients and doctors have the information they need to evaluate the safety, effectiveness, and value of health care.

"With comparative effectiveness, patients and providers will be able to assess drugs, technologies, and treatment options and make decisions that best reflect the patients' needs and preferences.

"We applaud efforts to address this important priority in the current economic recovery bills.

"Our members are strongly committed to advancing an evidence-based health care system in which information generated through rigorous analysis and research is quickly and effectively translated into everyday medical practice."

In November 2007, the AHIP Board of Directors released the following statement: "Setting a Higher Bar for Quality and Value Through Comparative Effectiveness Research" outlining a call for a new independent, national entity to distribute evidence-based data in a useful format so patients and clinicians can make more informed health care decisions.
