From Nov. 17, 2023 through Jan. 16, 2024, PCORI sought input from the community related to a draft Patient-Centered Economic Outcomes Landscape for Considering the Full Range of Outcomes in PCORI-funded Research.


PCORI-funded studies should capture, as appropriate, the full range of clinical and patient-centered outcomes. This includes costs and other economic burdens—these are the potential burdens and economic impacts of the utilization of medical treatments, items, and services on different stakeholders and decision-makers.

PCORI produced a draft Landscape of Patient-Centered Economic Outcomes that aims to lay out, in one place, appropriate and relevant outcomes, that capture costs and other economic burdens from a patient-centered, but multi-stakeholder, perspective.

The landscape is intended to serve as a reference for PCORI applicants to use when considering their research questions, patient populations, study contexts and settings, and what patient-centered economic outcomes might be appropriate and relevant.

The landscape does not present or prescribe what outcomes, measurement techniques, or analytic methods researchers must include. PCORI intends it to be a reference and not a blueprint. PCORI invited input from patients, families, caregivers, and all of our stakeholders, the broader healthcare community, and the public.

Request for Input

All comments were welcome, but we were specifically interested in receiving feedback on the following questions: 

  1. Do you agree with the structure and organization of the landscape?
  2. What patient-centered economic outcomes do you believe are missing from the report?
  3. What patient-centered economic outcomes noted in the report do not fully reflect your, or your community’s, perspective?
  4. What economic outcomes captured in the report do you strongly believe are not sufficiently patient-centered?
  5. What economic outcomes captured in the report are especially important to inform decisions made by you and others in your community?

​About this Request for Public Input
