Comparative Effectiveness: 100 Top Priorities

July 1, 2009

The Institute of Medicine, tasked by Congress, released yesterday its list of 100 top comparative effectiveness priorities for public funding.

The complete list is here: http://www.iom.edu/File.aspx?ID=71032

The full press release is here: http://www.iom.edu/CMS/3809/63608/71025.aspx

With the trend towards comparative effectiveness and evidence-based medicine, a greater amount of information is necessary to support a drug / device / therapy on the market – yet companies aren’t going to relish the idea of performing costly clinical trials if the information already exists, in whole or in part.

Seems like a natural fit for the information professional – after all, isn’t finding information what we do best?
