PCORI Issues Draft National Priorities, Calls for Comment

January 23, 2012

The Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is an independent, non-profit health research organization.  Its mission is to fund research that offers patients and caregivers the information they need to make important healthcare decisions.

PCORI has issued its Draft National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda, Version 1, which presents five prioritized research areas.  These focus on information that patients and caregivers need in order to make important healthcare decisions.  The priorities and agenda will guide PCORI’s first primary research funding announcement, and PCORI will work closely and continuously with all stakeholders to refine the agenda and to identify specific areas and questions where PCORI’s research can have the greatest impact.

PCORI seeks stakeholder input on the draft document.  Comments should be submitted through the online portal by March 15, 2012.
