The Center for Evidence-based Policy is a leader in evidence-based decision making and policy design in the United States. The Center works with U.S. federal, state and local policymakers in more than half of the states to use high-quality evidence to guide decisions, maximize resources and improve health outcomes. Established in 2003, the Center works with a wide range of stakeholders to improve public policy through innovation, collaboration, and use of best evidence.
As examples of our work which are underpinned by the quality and quantity of existing research, the Center organizes two large state collaboratives—DERP (Drug Effectiveness Review Project) and MED (Medicaid Evidence-based Decisions Project). Both conduct systematic evidence reviews and the synthesized information we provide to state partners is only as good as the evidence we are able to find. We have been advocates for evidence transparency and support the mission of AllTrials.
