Center for Evidence-based Policy
The Center is a national leader in evidence-based decision making and policy design. We work with federal, state and local policymakers in more than 20 states to use high-quality evidence to guide decisions, maximize resources and improve outcomes.
An issue brief recently published by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation prominently featured the work of three states associated with the Center, including its multistate collaboratives– New York, Oregon, and Washington – in reducing the overuse and misuse of health care services. The brief highlighted the states’ use of systematic reviews of clinical evidence and evidence-based guidelines to identify and reduce overused and misused services. The Center is proud to have supported New York, Oregon, and Washington in the development and implementation of these successful programs. The Center continues to produce systematic reviews of clinical evidence and evidence-based guidelines that inform these programs’ decision-making processes through the Center’s two multi-state collaboratives – the Medicaid Evidence-based Decisions (MED) Project and the Drug Effectiveness Review Project (DERP) – and other efforts.
We are pleased that New York, Oregon, and Washington are being widely recognized for their significant work and achievements in this area.
