InforMatrix is a decision matrix technique by means of which a group of experts on a subject (health condition) determine, on the basis of agreed criteria, an order of merit for the various available treatment options for that condition. The goal of the InforMatrix program is to make a rational selection of first-choice medications or drugs following the evaluation of the clinical value of available therapeutic agents. This paper describes the InforMatrix methodology, and also provides an explanation of the various selection criteria that are used by the InforMatrix technique of drug selection.
