The Power of Partnership in Research: Improving Healthcare Outcomes in Rural Settings

March 9, 2013 - March 10, 2013

Hyatt Regency
Wichita, Kansas

Archived Webcast ButtonThe Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) hosted a regional workshop at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita, Kansas, March 9-10, 2013, called The Power of Partnership in Research: Improving Healthcare Outcomes in Rural Settings. It was a highly energized gathering of representatives from across the healthcare community who gathered to help build a patient-centered research community in the central states. Part of PCORI’s foundational commitment is to produce information which improves health and healthcare  outcomes, by keeping patients’ priorities firmly in mind.

Woman speaking at Wichita workshopWe welcomed patients, caregivers, and local healthcare leaders from Kansas and the surrounding states (Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Texas and Iowa) to join us in building a patient-centered research community, to learn about PCORI, and guide us on how to conduct “research done differently.”

The meeting was made available via public webcast so that those who couldn't attend could hear directly from those who are already doing research differently and others who shared their stories and vision of research “guided by patients, caregivers and the broader healthcare community.”
