AHRQ’s Evidence-based Practice Center Program: 25 Years of Supporting Healthcare With Evidence
AHRQ is pleased to recognize the 25th anniversary of its Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) Program, a groundbreaking initiative dedicated to synthesizing scientific evidence and disseminating research findings to improve the safety and quality of patient care. Since its inception, the $325 million invested in EPC Program projects has resulted in more than 800 evidence reports, and over 400 clinical practice guidelines and U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendation statements. Today’s EPCs are the backbone of AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program, producing reports on medications, devices and other healthcare services.
