Disclosure Acceptance

Disclosure Policy for AHRQ Effective Health Care Program Public Review
Original Implementation Date: July 22, 2010; Most Recent Revision: July 29, 2014

The AHRQ Effective Health Care (EHC) Program supports and is committed to the transparency of its public review process. Reviewers are not required to provide their name or affiliation in order to submit comments.

For draft key questions, comments will be taken into consideration and may potentially result in modifications to the final key questions; however, individual comments will not be identified or posted, except in summary form.

For draft reports, comments will be publicly posted on the EHC Program Web site within 3 months after the associated final report is posted on this Web site. Each review comment on the draft report will be listed with the reviewer's name and affiliation, if such information is provided. Please note that if reviewers include identifiable personal health information, it will be redacted. The report authors' responses to the comments (the "disposition of comments") will be posted on the same Web page as the associated final report.
