AHRQ releases new evidence reports

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has published two new evidence reports that were developed by AHRQ-supported Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPCs). There are 13 AHRQ-supported EPCs. They systematically review the relevant scientific literature on topics assigned to them by AHRQ and conduct additional analyses when appropriate prior to developing their reports and assessments.

The goal is to inform health plans, providers, purchasers, and the health care system as a whole by providing essential information to improve health care quality. EPC reports and summaries are published by AHRQ and are available from the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse.
