About Us

February is American Heart Month, and we at PCORI are working hard to fund research that provides useful evidence to people with heart disease and those who care for them as they make decisions about their care. Today, we are sharing a post about a joint PCORI and American Heart Association project to crowdsource ideas for new research questions that address difficult challenges related to cardiovascular diseases. This post appeared February 2, 2017, on American Heart Association News.

Crowdsourcing isn’t just a quick way to get things done on the Internet. When used right, it can accelerate medical research and improve global cardiovascular health, according to a new best-practices “playbook” released by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
