Policy Leadership Briefings Series
The Center for Medical Technology Policy (CMTP) is working with the nation’s business leaders, clinical research institutions, managed care organizations, patient advocates, and government to promote the development and evaluation of new drugs and technologies for improving the care of patients and to support the mission and goals of the new Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) in creating a comparative effectiveness research (CER) framework for the US.
CMTP has developed the Policy Leadership Briefings Series with two goals: (1) to provide concise but in-depth information to key decision makers and policy makers on aspects of comparative effectiveness research and evidence-based, patient centered health care; and (2) to create a neutral, independent platform for exchange of tools, strategies and ideas for CER between policy makers and the top experts in the US and abroad.
A white paper that provides background and describes the key issues will be distributed to participants at each meeting. Meetings are typically limited to a morning or afternoon, and include breakfast or lunch, and are located near the Capitol for easy access to members and their staffs.
