Identifying priority populations and improving data infrastructure of research will have the greatest impact on the quality of care in US hospitals, a new patient-centred report by the US Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research has found.

The Council said that $400m in funds to be spent by the Health & Human Services Office of the Secretary should help doctors and patients to make informed decisions about healthcare.

More investment should be made in information dissemination and the results of comparative effectiveness research should be shared with physicians and patients, the report said.

It also found that more research needs to be done in helping to improve healthcare for underserved populations such as racial minorities, patients with disabilities or multiple chronic ailments, the elderly and children.
