Comparative Effectiveness Reviews - Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (US)

Version: September 2011


With input from key informants, we developed the PICOTS (population, intervention, comparator, outcome, timing, setting), conceptual framework, and key questions during the topic refinement stage. The Key Questions were posted to the Effective Health Care Web site. The public was invited to comment on the Key Questions. After reviewing the public commentary, we drafted the final Key Questions and submitted them to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality for approval. The Technical Expert Panel (TEP) reviewed the protocol and provided additional clinical and methodological input. The analytic framework (Figure 1), which was developed by the review team in consultation with the TEP, outlines the main elements of each Key Question.


The PRISMA diagram in Figure 2 depicts the flow of retrieved records through the phases of screening and inclusion. The titles and/or abstracts of 427 citations were screened at Level 1. These citations were identified from database searching, reference lists, grey literature, and Technical Expert Panel nomination. We did not identify any relevant data in the Scientific Information Packets submitted by pharmaceutical industries.
