AHRQ Launches CEDAR Application Programming Interface

A new application programming interface from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Center for Evidence and Practice Improvement (CEPI) makes it easier for researchers and clinicians to search, find, and use information from the agency’s evidence-based resources and repositories.  The CEPI Evidence Discovery and Retrieval (CEDAR) project allows health information technology developers to build platforms that can integrate AHRQ’s research findings into their systems, which can then be used by researchers, clinicians, and patients.  Repositories and programs include the Systematic Review Data Repository, the Effective Care Program, CDS Connect, and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendations.  CEDAR is free, publicly available, and uses health information standards and technologies that people are already familiar with.  Explore details about CEDAR.
