How We Evaluate New Medical Technologies

DVIF&G believes that it is very important to be able to offer our patients the best and most up-to-date technologies available. We review all new medical technologies, pharmaceuticals, and devices, as well as new uses of established technologies as they become available in order to help us treat our patients. Our technology review includes, but is not limited to:

• Reviewing medical research and scientific evidence on the safety and effectiveness of the medical technology.

• Considering position statements and clinical practice guidelines on how these technologies should be used in our medical setting.

• Determining whether these technologies are experimental or investigational.

We communicate these new and exciting technologies on this website in “News You Can Use” and Ask Our Experts. If you have any questions regarding any medical technologies that we offer, please call us at (856) 988-0072.
