PCORI's New Strategic Plan

As PCORI begins its second decade funding research to help people make informed health decisions and improve healthcare delivery and health outcomes, we have embarked on the development of a new strategic plan to guide our future work to fulfill PCORI’s mission.

In response to its legislative mandate, and after considering the environment in which it operates and listening to stakeholders, PCORI developed its strategic plan.

In November 2013, our Board of Governors approved this strategic plan. It focuses on

  • Funding and conducting highly relevant research that is likely to change practice and improve patient outcomes
  • Disseminating and promoting the implementation of the results of this research
  • Influencing how clinical research is done by others, so that a greater proportion of all clinical research is useful to patients and other healthcare decision makers

We see this plan as our current roadmap and will revisit and revise it in response to stakeholder feedback, changing circumstances, and what we are learning about what does and does not work to advance us toward our goals. It first presents the organization's mission, vision, goals, strategic imperatives, and core values and then describes how we will reach our long-term goals. The plan's third section outlines how we intend to monitor and report on our progress toward our goals and demonstrate that we are on track to make a difference.
