Atrial Fibrillation: Final Report

This final report is based on a review by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). ICER produced this set of complementary analyses to provide the New England CEPAC with information relevant to clinical and policy decision-makers in New England. This adaptation is not meant to revisit the core scientific findings and conclusions of the AHRQ review on “Comparative Effectiveness of Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation” but is intended to supplement those findings with: 1) updated information on catheter ablation published since the AHRQ review; 2) evidence regarding an additional management option, surgical ablation; 3) regional data on prevalence, utilization, and existing payer coverage policies; and 4) the results of a decision analytic model and budget impact analysis to support discussion of the comparative value of different patient management options.
