Special Issue of PharmacoEconomics to Focus on Comparative Effectiveness Research
Date:9/22/2010

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions, a leading provider of scientific information and analytics to the pharmaceutical and biotech fields, announced today that the Adis journal PharmacoEconomics has released a special issue devoted entirely to comparative effectiveness research (CER).  CER seeks to compare various medical interventions based on price, safety and effectiveness as a means to improve patient healthcare and slow the rise of healthcare costs.

CER has become increasingly relevant in light of U.S. healthcare reform as evidenced by President Obama recently signing into law a bill that establishes the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, a non-profit organization tasked with setting priorities and funding in this area.  In addition, more than $1.1 billion in federal funding was earmarked for CER as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

"CER is an important touchstone in this new era which puts more priority on patient-centered and cost-conscious approaches to healthcare," said Christopher Carswell, Editor of PharmacoEconomics.  "Our goal is to further raise awareness for this important area of research and set forth some of the best approaches for incorporating CER into the fabric of global healthcare."

Published today online, the special issue contains papers from thought leaders and key stakeholders from various constituencies around the globe including the pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical benefit managers (PBMs) managed care pharmacy and government and private payers from the U.S., Canada, Europe and the Pacific-Rim.  As guest editors for the issue, health economists Howard Birnbaum and
