CER Component Goals The overarching goal of the Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) Component is to increase investments in comparative effectiveness research studies and economic evaluations, which will generate and translate evidence on effective and cost-effective interventions into sustained practice. The CER Component links data, people, and technology with advanced research designs to focus on the needs of patients, providers, and other stakeholders consistent with new national priorities.
Objective 1: Develop and maintain data and infrastructure resources to support an array of translational research activities including CER, economic evaluations, and patient-centered outcomes research i.Pharmetrics LifeLink data (6.1 million lives) ii.Data Warehouse iii.Other data resources TRI-CER Vision and Objectives
Objective 2: Engage providers and other researchers in the implementation and evaluation of interventions and technologies that improve patient and clinician decision-making i.Tablet project to capture patient-reported outcome data in real time i.Clinicians can access data in real time ii.Stored in electronic medical record for comparative effectiveness research ii.Smart phone applications i.Evaluation for patient adherence ii.Data recording tool TRI-CER Vision and Objectives
Objective 3: Stimulate interdisciplinary research in patient-centered outcomes research and CER I.Provide Funding Opportunities II.Organize Webinars and Other Educational Opportunities III.Consult with Researchers and Partner Organizations TRI-CER Vision and Objectives
