Comparative-Effectiveness Research (CER) is a powerful tool to demonstrate the value of a product or service to aid evidence-based decision making. CER requires a comprehensive and systematic synthesis of results for existing/publishing studies. CER also summarizes and compares multiple healthcare interventions and technologies. CER is increasingly accepted as a healthcare intervention by regulatory bodies like NICE and PBAC.
A top pharmaceutical company wanted to evaluate the effectiveness of outcomes resulting from a healthcare service for a silent disease which has no symptoms. CHEORS conducted a systematic literature review with a robust methodology. Our expert team of economists, pharmacists, and librarians designed and optimized search strategies to capture the most relevant articles within the medical databases. The team evaluated and interpreted the review findings and presented them by outcome as well as country. In addition, our team also conducted a meta-analysis and sensitivity analysis to determine the quantitative effect of the healthcare service. Our CER helped the client better understand the disease as well as the effectiveness of implementing the service.
