We’re just one day away from PCORI’s second Annual Meeting. I know that all of those who helped to put together this gathering look forward to hosting some 1,200 members of the healthcare community for an in-person update on our stakeholder-guided approach to comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER). We will be welcoming others via webcast.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Changing the Conversation about Health Research.” We think that aptly sums up what may well be one of PCORI’s most lasting impacts—seeking to make health research more patient-centered and stakeholder-driven. In our case, of course, the focus is on studies that compare different care approaches to show what works best, for whom, based on outcomes that matter to patients. The goal is to help patients and those who care for them make better-informed decisions about the healthcare choices they make daily.

We’ll explore this and related themes during our more than two days of exciting keynote sessions, plenary panels, and workshops. We hope you’ll join us by signing up to watch the plenary sessions via webcast and participate in our first Facebook Live session, on a crowdsourced topic: smarter use of antibiotics. You can also join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #PCORI2016.
