As health care evolves to become more patient-centered, the role of patients and consumers in the evidence generation process is expanding. This expansion has given rise to a set of questions for comparative effectiveness research (CER) projects around how, when, and to what extent to engage patients and consumers in figuring out what works best for whom, and under what conditions. The research community will increasingly be called upon to take into account new perspectives and priorities according to the needs and interest of patients and consumers, but how?


In this session, panelists discuss ways of learning from patients- particularly with respect to leveraging new technology and electronic clinical data - and consider the implications of these lessons for improving health care and patient outcomes.
