Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Programs


PCORI solicits applications for proposals for patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) based on their National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda. Each priority represents a line of inquiry that addresses unmet needs of patients, caregivers, clinicians and other healthcare system stakeholders in making personalized healthcare decisions across a wide range of conditions and treatments. Applications are evaluated based on a set of criteria that include scientific and technical merit, engagement of patients and other stakeholders, methodological rigor, and fit within our research priorities and research agenda.

PCORI Pilot Projects Program address a broad range of questions about methods for engaging patients in the health research and dissemination process. Their work will help to establish a foundation for patient-centered research that will give patients, caregivers and clinicians the information and tools they need every day. The Pilot Projects were selected by PCORI‘s Board of Governors through a competitive, multi-stage review process. The Pilot Projects will allow PCORI to learn more about evidence-based methods and strategies, with an emphasis on effectively involving patients in the entire research process, from the selection of research topics to the dissemination of results. Awards include those for projects designed to develop a range of tools and techniques aimed at improving patient-centered care and decision-making; create new patient-centered care measures; and improve delivery of patient-centered counseling and care in various health care settings.
