The Lewin Group Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research

The Center manages, conducts, interprets, and supports the use of comparative effectiveness research (CER) to inform decisions that help achieve the most effective patient outcomes, health care policies, and deployment of health care resources.

We provide data-driven, evidence-based policy recommendations and decision support for clients who conduct CER or wish to implement its findings. How? By combining the consulting expertise of The Lewin Group and OptumInsight's expertise in data assets and management.

The collective strengths and innovations of these sister companies enable us to provide:
  • Data sets and registries
  • Expert analysis and data management
  • Tools to analyze longitudinal health outcomes for treatment effectiveness
  • Services to conduct and manage Institutional Review Board-approved comparative trials and registries
