PCORI Draft National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda
Introduction and Invitation for Public Comment
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 focuses on “comparative clinical effectiveness” research. These are studies that compare options for preventing disease and providing treatment and care. PCORI does so by:
- Identifying national priorities for research.
- Creating a research agenda based on identified priorities.
- Funding research consistent with these priorities and agenda.
- Providing patients and their caregivers with useful research information.
