Review Finds Cost Effectiveness of Complementary and Integrative Medicine in More Than Two Dozen High-Quality Studies

Επισκόπηση βρίσκει αποτελεσματικότητα κόστους της Συμπληρωματικής και Ενοποιημένης Ιατρικής σε περισσότερες από δύο δωδεκάδες υψηλής ποιότητας μελέτες.

by John Weeks - original article

Some interesting portions of the article follow:
In an interview for this blog, Herman stated: "I'm tired of this talk that there is no evidence for cost-effectiveness of complementary and integrative medicine. There is evidence. We need to move onto phase two and look at how transferable these findings are. We can take this evidence and run."

Herman is right that it's time to shift the dialogue from roundhouse dismissal of potential cost-saving contributions from what she and the authors call "CIM" (complementary and integrative medicine) treatments and providers. The evidence is there for proactive exploration of potential cost savings.
