About the DEcIDE Network

This project ended in September 2014.

The DEcIDE (Developing Evidence to Inform Decisions about Effectiveness) Network is a collection of research centers that the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) created in 2005. These centers gather new knowledge and information on specific treatments. The DEcIDE Network conducts studies on the outcomes, effectiveness, safety, and usefulness of medical treatments and services.
