Technology Assessment Reports

The technology assessment program at AHRQ provides technology assessments for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). These technology assessments are used by CMS to inform its national coverage decisions for the Medicare program as well as provide information to Medicare carriers. For a list of archived reports from 1990-2010, see the AHRQ Web site External Web Site Policy.

Research Reviews and Research Summaries

There are three types of research reviews: (1) Comparative effectiveness reviews outline the effectiveness — or benefits and harms — of treatment options, (2) Technical briefs explain what is known — and what is not known — about new or emerging health care tests or treatments. Final reports are listed below by health condition, and (3) Future research needs papers are intended to be used by researchers and funders of research to help improve the body of comparative effectiveness evidence that would be useful for decision-makers. For a list of archived research reviews, see the Effective Health Care Program Web site External Web Site Policy.
Below the research reviews, where applicable, are short, plain-language guides – tailored to clinicians, consumers, or policymakers – which summarize the research review's findings on the benefits and harms of different treatment options. Consumer summaries provide useful background on health conditions. Clinician summaries and policymaker summaries rate the strength of evidence behind a report's conclusions. The summaries on medications also contain basic wholesale price information.
