REQ-008: Comparative Effectiveness Research

 
Comparative Effectiveness Research: The Wisconsin Medical Society believes that Physicians must play an active part in the governing Comparative Effectiveness Research entity to ensure that the effect does not disrupt the trust between a physician and her/his patient. The Wisconsin Medical Society supports using Comparative Effectiveness Research as a tool for determining what is the best evidentiary value-based approach based on quality over cost. The Wisconsin Medical Society supports policy makers using Comparative Effectiveness Research as long as the benefits from such use are not diverted to non-health care funds, and that decisions on coverage are not based solely on cost.
