With the rise in state-based and regional comparative effectiveness research (CER), local CER programs like the New England Comparative Effectiveness Review Public Advisory Council (CEPAC) have become increasingly influential in payer decision-making.Sarah Jane Reed and Sarah Emond from the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER), the organization that manages CEPAC, will join Avalere Health for a one-hour discussion about CEPAC’s structure, processes, conduct, and opportunities for stakeholder engagement.
During this webinar, you
will learn more about:
- CEPAC’s structure, processes, conduct, and engagement opportunities
- The process for prioritization and conduct of CEPAC and ICER
- Upcoming research topics that are in the pipeline, and the process behind choosing these research topics (i.e., rationale behind wide variety in research topics)
How stakeholders can meaningfully engage in the commenting process
- An understanding of CEPAC’s influence on payer decision-making (from CEPAC and ICER’s perspective)
- A brief overview of how Avalere’s EBM Navigator® serves as a critical business intelligence tool to stay abreast of these emerging trends in local CER and evidence based medicine (EBM) as they occur.
