Founded in January 2006 by Peter Neumann, ScD and Joshua Cohen, PhD, the Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health (CEVR) analyzes the benefits, risks and costs of strategies to improve health and health care.  CEVR undertakes projects to determine the cost-effectiveness of health care interventions, advances methods development, and helps train the next generation of practitioners. We also seek to inform national clinical and public health policy issues. Along with the Global Health Cost-Effectiveness Registry, CEVR has developed and maintains the Cost-effectiveness Analysis (CEA) Registry, a comprehensive data of cost per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) studies published in the English-language peer reviewed journals.
