Comparative effectiveness research (CER)

Verification of your therapeutic options

A systematic research comparing different therapeutic options.

Comparing different therapeutic options.

Maybe you recently had a diagnosis or treatment proposal from your physician. You are probably wondering, if this is the only treatment possibility or if there are other options  or more efficient solutions.

In this case, you need a Comparative Effectiveness Research. The Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) is a engineered data miming process that allows patients taking health-care decisions. The process is designed in order to provide evidence on the effectiveness and/or harms, the cost / benefit ratio of different treatment options.

In our days data mining is a major problem. Data is produced much faster than the possibility to analyze it. Another major problem is the fact that data is easily accessible to most people at least it is in the western world. Health care is one of the branches of human knowledge mostly affected by this issue. Questions that often arise not only for patients, but also from economists, politicians are:

  • Is the cost benefit for a treatment correct?
  • Which is the best treatment for a certain disease?
  • Is this treatment validated by research and by a peer reviewed publication?
  • What is the rational of a treatment?

The Comparative Effectiveness Research can provide a detailed picture of the different procedures used for the treatment of the same disease; your disease. See our areas of expertise.
