Comparative Effectiveness research provides and disseminates information on the relative strengths and weaknesses of various medical therapies. The stimulus package that was enacted earlier this year allocated $1.1 billion for Comparative Effectiveness research. It has the potential to create major changes for all organizations in the life sciences value chain—manufacturers of drugs and devices, suppliers and service providers, payers, hospitals, physicians, and patients.
This conference will examine the policy and implementation issues relating to Comparative Effectiveness research, including: How will life sciences firms be impacted and how can they best take advantage of Comparative Effectiveness research? Who should conduct and pay for such research? Government, the private sector or both? Who decides what research to conduct and how should it be used? What can the United States learn from existing Comparative Effectiveness research in other countries? What will be the role of the various participants in the health care system—industry, payers, hospitals, physicians, and patients—in answering these questions?
