Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) Reports
Under the EPC Program, 5-year contracts are awarded to institutions in the United States to serve as EPCs.
AHRQ’s Effective Health Care (EHC) Program accepts suggestions of topics for evidence reports from anyone. Representatives of major hospitals, clinicians, researchers, payers, and patients have all offered suggestions for new evidence reports.
This search provides complete titles of all evidence reports completed by EPCs, including reports for the Effective Health Care Program, the Technology Assessment Program, and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.
The EPC Program also produces reports on systematic review methodological topics and other types of evidence synthesis-related reports, and tools and software to aid researchers.
The Technology Assessment (TA) Program at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) provides technology assessments for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). These technology assessments are used by CMS to inform its national coverage decisions for the Medicare program as well as provide information to Medicare carriers.
