The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) announced on Monday, March 18, that it had appointed new members to its three independent evidence appraisal councils.
The three councils are the California Technology Assessment Forum, the Midwest Comparative Effectiveness Public Advisory Council and the New England Comparative Effectiveness Advisory Council.
According to a press release, the new additions “join the councils of regionally-based experts who represent a broad range of perspectives including medical ethics, patient advocacy and engagement, outcomes research, health economics, technology assessment, and clinical practice.”
“Our independent evidence appraisal councils play a vital role in ICER’s work, representing an open, transparent forum to receive in put from patients, clinical experts, and other stakeholders, and then to deliberate and vote on the evidence regarding a treatment’s net health benefit and economic value for patients and the health system,” ICER President Steven Pearson said in a statement.
