” INFORMATION WITH NO DATA IS JUST ANOTHER OPINION” Comparative Effectiveness Research in Health Care
In our days data miming is a major problem. Data is produced much faster than the possibility to analyze it. Another major problem is the fact that data is easily accessible to most people at least it is in the western world. Health Care is one of the branches of human knowledge mostly affected by this issue. Questions that often arise for patients, economists, politicians are:
- Is the cost benefit for a treatment correct?
- Which is the best treatment for a certain disease?
- Is this treatment validated by research and by a peer reviewed publication?
- What is the rational of a treatment?
What Swiss Health Care International (SHCI) intend with Comparative Effectiveness Research in Health Care is a engineered data miming process that allows taking health-care decisions. The process is designed in order to provide evidence on the effectiveness and/or harms, the cost/benefit ratio of different treatment options.

Reduce the incidence and mortality rates for a number of tumors with a trivial dose of aspirin every day
A new study reveals how low doses of acetylsalicylic acid – between 75 and 325 mg daily – may decrease the formation of digestive tumors up to 35% and the relative rate of deaths up to 50%.
