The PCORI Annual Meeting brings together members of the healthcare community, including researchers, patients, caregivers, clinicians, insurers, health system representatives, and other stakeholders. The event serves as a report to the nation on PCORI’s progress in funding initiatives to determine which care approaches work best, for whom, and under what circumstances.

In 2020, the meeting featured keynotes, plenaries, and breakout sessions that highlighted a range of timely and important topics, such as the evolution and future of patients' involvement in research; racism, discrimination, and bias in health care; implementing evidence within and across health systems; maternal mental health, individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities; telehealth; and COVID-19.
