ECRI Institute Awarded AHRQ Contract to Establish National Healthcare Horizon Scanning System
Date:11/4/2010

"Thought leaders from throughout the healthcare sector will be invited to offer insights at several points in the research process to help us understand the contextual landscape in which new healthcare technologies and services could come into widespread use."

ECRI Institute is the world's largest independent, nonprofit health technology assessment and patient safety organization, and dedicates itself to bringing the discipline of applied scientific research to healthcare to discover which medical procedures, devices, drugs, and processes best enable improved patient care. ECRI Institute has served as an Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) to AHRQ since the inception of the EPC Program in 1997.

"Our 43 years of healthcare experience in comparative effectiveness research, and in evaluating the likely future use of technologies, has made us keenly aware of the usefulness of building a robust public sector horizon scanning system," says Jeffrey C. Lerner, PhD, CEO and president, ECRI Institute. "Under the AHRQ-mandated objective and transparent research process, ECRI is contractually committed to an independent look back at the accuracy of our work."

ECRI Institute's three main subcontractors, The Lewin Group, Thompson Reuters Healthcare, and Mathematica, were selected for their rich experience in healthcare horizon scanning activities, understanding of context that affects healthcare technology utilization and diffusion, and ability to independently assess the validity of a new healthcare horizon scanning system.
