Press Release Date: January 18, 2002
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) today issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from institutions to serve as Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPCs) under 5-year contracts. Proposals are due by March 1, 2002.
This RFP is the second phase of AHRQ's Evidence-based Practice Program. Like their predecessors, the EPCs II will produce evidence reports and technology assessments based on comprehensive reviews and rigorous analyses of the relevant scientific evidence. The reports and assessments will be used by systems of care, professional societies, purchasers and others as the scientific foundation for developing their own practice guidelines, performance measures and other quality improvement tools, and for making decisions related to the effectiveness or appropriateness of specific health care technologies.
Select to access the RFP (AHRQ-02-0003).
For more information, please contact Nancy Comfort, (301) 427-1866 (NComfort@ahrq.gov).
