Comparative Effectiveness Research
Clinicians, consumers, health-care systems, health-care purchasers and policy makers increasingly want to know “what works” and if there is research to support this. They need to know if a treatment or test works better compared with other options and what harms there may be. For over a decade, Spectrum Research has been involved in comparative-effectiveness research to help answer these questions.
Comparative effectiveness research compares interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat or monitor health conditions. This includes evidence generation and evidence synthesis. Spectrum research has expert experience in both.
