CTAF
July 14, 2015 9:30am - 3:30pm PT

Location: The California Endowment, 1000 N. Alameda St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

The California Technology Assessment Forum (CTAF) held a public meeting on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 to discuss the comparative effectiveness and value of several current approaches to manage obesity, including medications, devices, and surgical procedures. ICER produced a report that includes a systematic review of the published evidence, as well as an economic analysis that examines cost-effectiveness and budget impact of the various approaches. The report formed the basis for deliberation and discussion at the public meeting, where the CTAF panel voted on key questions raised in the report, and a policy roundtable discussed evidence-based practice and policy recommendations.
