Exploring Patient-Centered Comparative Effectiveness Research

Patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER) informs countless decisions made by doctors and their patients every day, but the field’s significance is often overlooked in discussions of health policy. To help stakeholders understand this critical research process, BPC hosted the first of two forums with leading experts on April 18. The forum’s panel, moderated by economist and Project HOPE senior fellow Dr. Gail Wilensky, featured Dr. Carolyn Clancy from the Veterans Health Administration, Dr. Joe Selby from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), Dr. Murray Ross from Kaiser Permanente Institute for Health Policy, and Jen Hyde, a heart valve ambassador with the American Heart Association. The panel was preceded by opening remarks from Dr. Jodi Segal of Johns Hopkins Medicine who provided a broad overview of the field of comparative effectiveness research.
