“For years, ICER has led a national discussion about how to align the prices in our health care system with the benefits patients receive from various treatments, therapies, and interventions,” said ICER’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Sarah K. Emond, MPP. “Comparative effectiveness research can guide policymakers as they ensure that patients have access to transformative therapies at fair prices. Several states have begun implementing approaches grounded in comparative effectiveness research that are likely to produce meaningful savings and improve access for patients and the health care system.”
