Integrating technology assessment and medical practice evaluation into hospital operations

Abstract

The Johns Hopkins Program for Medical Technology and Practice Assessment, established in 1986, assesses the clinical efficacy, safety, and cost of specific technologies; evaluates the costs and benefits of alternative approaches to management of clinical problems; and examines the clinical and economic impact of health care program innovations. For example, program faculty have conducted analyses of clinical economic, and health policy issues related to radiographic contrast media. The director of the program chairs a committee that formulates guidelines for the appropriate use of low-osmolality contrast media and that will develop a mechanism to ensure compliance with guidelines. Program faculty are currently studying variations in the pre-, intra-, and postoperative management of patients with cataract and the relationship between such variations and outcomes. Faculty are also attempting to develop an improved mechanism for paying health maintenance organizations that enroll Medicare beneficiaries. Program activities have had a direct impact on decision making within the Johns Hopkins Health System.
