Symposium on Comparative Effectiveness Research of Devices at Weill Cornell
Time & Location
About the Event
The Comparative Effectiveness Symposium at WCMC will inform the target audience how CER design in an interventional setting requires innovative approaches and clinical judgment when using big data.
Topics will include a session on historical overview of comparative effectiveness research, with a special focus on international collaboration and research discussed by Art Sedrakyan, MD, PhD, Director of Patient-Centered CER program and Medical Device Epidemolgy Network’ Sciance Center at Cornell. There will a talk on opportunities for innovative CER within the New York City Clinical Data Research Network (NYC-CDRN) by Rainu Kaushal, MD, MPH, chair of the Department of Healthcare Policy and Research. Additional topics will include CER studies in urology, neurology, vascular surgery, colon and rectal surgery, thoracic surgery, OBGYN, and diabetes therapy.
Often, only partial information is available through commonly used data sources: however, there are ways to be creative regardless of these limitations. The Symposium will address these limitations and how physicians can best adapt to overcoming them.
