Comparative Effectiveness is a useful tool in a much larger toolkit – it is not “the answer”
Comparative Effectiveness does not make policy or health care decisions, tell doctors how to practice medicine or make final decisions about what kind of treatments insurers will pay for
Comparative Effectiveness does weigh the evidence and present it in a way that helps consumers and their doctors make the best possible decisions about health care choices
