Testimony on Comparative Effectiveness Research

The Advocate Medical Group has over 700 physicians and is a major provider of health care in metropolitan Chicago. The comparative effectiveness program is a vital resource for us and I would enthusiastically support continued and increased funding. My major complaint is that they've managed to cover only a few topics thus far. I'd like to see many additional questions addressed. Comparative effectiveness research is a critical need for the nation and for my group.
