Center for Medical Technology Policy (CMTP)

The Center for Medical Technology Policy (CMTP) was established as an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in January 2008 in order to improve the quality, relevance, and efficiency of health care research. We focus on the design and implementation of comparative effectiveness research to produce information that helps patients, clinicians, and payers make informed treatment and policy decisions. CMTP was established to provide a forum in which these decision-makers could play a meaningful and sustained role in all aspects of health care research, in hopes of generating better information about the comparative benefits, risks, and costs of health interventions.
