About the Effective Health Care Program

The Effective Health Care (EHC) Program improves the quality of healthcare by providing the best available evidence on the outcomes, benefits and harms, and appropriateness of drugs, devices, and healthcare services and by helping healthcare professionals, patients, policymakers, and healthcare systems make informed healthcare decisions.  The EHC Program achieves this goal by partnering with research centers, academic institutions, health professional societies, consumer organizations, and other stakeholders to conduct research, evidence synthesis, evidence translation, dissemination, and implementation of research findings.
