Meeting 1: Comparative Effectiveness Research Prioritization


Topics Biomedical and Health Research, Health Services, Coverage, and Access, Quality and Patient Safety
Activity: Comparative Effectiveness Research Prioritization
Board: Board on Health Care Services

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) requests your input for consideration of priorities for comparative effectiveness research (CER) as called for in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Stimulus Bill). In addition to allocating $400 million to the Secretary for Health and Human Services for CER, the legislation mandates that the IOM produce and submit a consensus report by June 30, 2009 that provides specific recommendations to Congress and the Secretary for expenditure of these funds. The legislation also requires the IOM committee solicit and consider public input as it develops its recommendations.

  • Questionnaire: The questionnaire is a primary vehicle by which the committee will collect information on the priorities of all stakeholders in health care (e.g., patients, consumers, providers, federal agencies, employers, manufacturers, policy makers). The questionnaire is now CLOSED but was active from March 6, 2009 - March 27, 2009. All responses are being compiled into a database that will be reviewed by the committee. 
  • Public Meeting: A public meeting will be convened during which a diverse group of stakeholders, including members of the public, will be invited to present to the committee as time allows.
