Assessing the Evidence for Health Care Decision Makers are public online / interactive questionnaires to evaluate modeling, observational, and network meta-analysis/indirect treatment comparison studies.

These questionnaires give the decision makers the ability to provide greater uniformity and transparency in the evaluation and use of evidence for coverage and health care decision making with the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes.

The “Assessing the Evidence” tool serves as:

  • A guide to determine if a study is relevant to the setting and credible enough to include in the formulary decision making process.
    • ✓ Prompts users on what they need to look for in a study
    • ✓ Flags fatal flows that undermines the study’s credibility
    • ✓ Prioritizes essential items that are pertinent to the study’s credibility (includes helper questions)
    • ✓ Provides instant feedback during the assessment process
  • An educational platform to improve users’ study assessment skills
    • ✓ Direct link to explanation of terminology and concepts
    • ✓ Glossary of terms
  • User-friendly features to allow you to:
    • ✓ Build a personal library of assessment reports and uploaded papers
    • ✓ Edit, print, and export your reports to Excel
    • ✓ Publicly access your work from any computer with login
    • ✓ Follow step-by-step instructions

These assessment tools are based on the ISPOR Good Practices for Outcomes Research Reports published in Value in Health (March/April 2014). These reports were a collaborative effort between ISPOR, AMCP, and NPC.
