Evolving Evidence Reviews

Evolving Evidence Reviews are designed to help clients develop policies and manage prior authorizations. Evolving Evidence Reviews are useful when a technology moves beyond emerging but the literature is not mature enough for a full Health Technology Assessment. Evolving Evidence Reviews provide a full-text appraisal of clinical studies, systematic reviews, and clinical practice guidelines as they relate to a specific health technology. Evolving Evidence Reviews provide Levels of Support indicated by these types of evidence. They also provide information on regulatory status, payer policies, and Hayes Insights.
