The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE): How Does It Work and What Are the Implications for the U.S.? (Executive Summary)

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE): How Does It Work and What Are the Implications for the U.S.? (Executive Summary)

A study commissioned by the National Pharmaceutical Council examines key learnings from the U.K.'s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), the organization that provides guidance to the National Health Service on the clinical and economic effects of various medical treatments. The study's authors, Dr. Michael Drummond and co-authors at the London School of Economics, provide an overview of NICE and present their conclusions about what the U.K.'s experiences mean for establishing a more formalized system for collecting comparative effectiveness information in the United States.

The full report is also available on NPC’s website.
