To date, we've awarded over $44 million to support 222 projects through the Engagement Awards program.
In the past month, we approved over $2.6 million in new awards through our Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program. These funds will support projects including:
- A dissemination-focused project by the Alliance of Community Health Plans Foundation to capture best dissemination practices, covering both the content of information and the process for dissemination and adoption, that have been effectively used by nearly two dozen high quality health plans in changing clinical behavior and improving patient outcomes.
- The Institute for Patient and Family Centered Care’s project to plan and convene the 8th International Conference on Patient- and Family-Centered Care: Promoting Health Equity and Reducing Disparities, and to develop a featured track presenting exemplary partnerships with patients and families from diverse and underserved communities in PCOR and CER.
- The National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalition’s initiative to identify existing and emerging PCOR/CER findings highly relevant to the purchaser community, prioritize dissemination and determine implications for purchasers and related stakeholders with the goal of educating and informing healthcare benefits professionals to shift their current practices and those of their vendors towards a stronger evidence-based approach in their healthcare decision-making.
- Hemophilia Federation of America’s project to train stakeholders in the bleeding disorders community using a blended learning method to increase opportunities for their community to influence, collaborate on, and participate in all phases of PCOR and CER.
