The authors reflect on the role of health care delivery organizations in contributing to the comparative effectiveness research (CER) knowledge base and applying its findings. They mention that the U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) has intended to set a broad, transparent and sustainable CER strategy. They state that the health care delivery organizations are both developers and end users of CER content. Opportunities for CER application are interactions among clinic staff and the patients.
