Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)

Posted on: December 9, 2013

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is authorized by Congress to conduct research to provide information about the best available evidence to help patients and their health care providers make more informed decisions. PCORI's research is intended to give patients a better understanding of the prevention, treatment and care options available, and the science that supports those options.

PCORI Funding Announcements (PFAs) are issued to support a portfolio of comparative clinical effectiveness research based on PCORI's National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda. PCORI's first Research Agenda includes five broad areas. Each area represents a line of research inquiry that addresses currently unmet needs of patients, their caregivers, clinicians and other healthcare system stakeholders in making personalized healthcare decisions across a wide range of conditions and treatments.
