Comparative Effectiveness

Background

Comparative effectiveness research (CER) helps determine which of several health care interventions work best for a given health care problem. Like personalized medicine, the goal of CER is to support high-quality, evidence-based decisions for optimal patient care.

If personalized medicine and comparative effectiveness research are aligned, they can optimize the quality of patient care and decrease systemic costs. PMC is working to ensure that happens.
