CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 1 — The New England Healthcare Institute (NEHI) released an issue brief, “From Evidence to Practice: Making CER Findings Work for Providers and Patients,'' that details the hurdles and policy choices to effective dissemination of comparative effectiveness research (CER) findings.

According to the report, “CER is an integral part of the strategy for systemic healthcare reform outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The 2010 healthcare reform legislation creates an independent entity (the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute — PCORI) to commission new comparative research. It delegates to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) the task of disseminating CER findings.”

The brief outlines a number of major factors found by NEHI research that could influence the creation of a coherent and effective CER dissemination strategy, including: existing and anticipated hurdles to CER dissemination; new trends in healthcare improvement that are potential drivers for CER dissemination; and policy choices for optimizing CER dissemination.
