8:00Welcome and Introductions
John W. Rowe, Columbia University & IOM Roundtable on Evidence-Based Medicine
8:15Keynote: A Vision for the Capacity to Learn What Care Works Best
What are the core elements of a robust and sustainable capacity for comparative effectiveness research? How do they relate to each other as a real infrastructure? What are the priorities and how might we build upon, link, and improve existing public and private system elements?
Mark B. McClellan, Brookings Institution & IOM Roundtable on Evidence-Based Medicine
8:45Session 1: The Work Required
Each presenter will describe the nature of the activity and what is known about the current capacity, suggest an approach to determining the necessary capacity, give an “opening bid” estimate of what that need might be, and offer initial suggestions on policies or activities for progress.
