4041.0 Health IT for Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER)

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 8:30 AM
Health IT provides a very useful tool for accessing data across multi payer platforms. Given that these platforms are usually different, and the utilization patterns variable, HIT systems can help policymakers analyze trends within the data. This session will help participants to explore these relationships.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants should be able to: 1. describe how HIT can enhance comparative effectiveness research (CER) across multi payer databases; 2. illustrate how CER can help researchers understand disparities in health care.
