Reviewing Evidence to Identify Highly Effective Clinical Services
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funded this study to address problems in our system for evaluating clinical evidence and to propose changes in the way we marshal evidence and apply it to endorse the most effective clinical interventions. The IOM committee was specifically charged with recommending a sustainable, replicable approach to identifying and evaluating the clinical services that have the highest potential effectiveness. This charge had three principal tasks:
(1) To recommend an approach to identify highly effective clinical services across the full spectrum of health care services--from prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation, to end of life care and palliation.
(2) To recommend a process to evaluate and report on evidence on clinical effectiveness.
(3) To recommend an organizational framework for using evidence reports to develop recommendations on appropriate clinical applications for specified populations.
Support for this project was provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
The approximate starting date for this project was 4/1/2006.
A final report was issued at the end of the project, approximately 18 months from the start date.
Project duration: 18 months.
You can provide feedback to the committee members and staff concerning this project through the National Academies Current Projects System.
