ICER Evidence Rating Matrix

The ICER Integrated Evidence Rating™ combines a rating for comparative clinical effectiveness and a rating for comparative value. The clinical effectiveness rating arises from a joint judgment of the level of confidence provided by the body of evidence and the magnitude of the net health benefit — the overall balance between benefits and harms. This method for rating the clinical effectiveness is modeled on the “Evidence- Based Medicine (EBM) matrix” developed by a multi-stakeholder group convened by America’s Health Insurance Plans.
