Advocates Debate Comparative Effectiveness At Forum

CQ HealthBeat: Advocates debated the usefulness of comparative effectiveness research at a forum Thursday. Some said the research could help provide better care for patients but one speaker from the National Minority Quality Forum "warned that minorities could be harmed if insurers or Medicaid officials used the studies in reimbursement decisions." The forum was sponsored by the Partnership to Improve Patient Care (Adams, 7/22). This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
