About Us

Last fall, we announced an exciting joint initiative from our two organizations—the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)—to support the training of clinician and research scientists to conduct patient-centered outcomes research within learning health systems.

Learning health systems align science—generated from health services research, patient-centered outcomes research, and clinical research—with informatics, incentives, and culture for continuous improvement and innovation, with best practices seamlessly embedded in the care process. They are an element of the growing digital healthcare landscape, with potential to improve patient care through real-time data and analytics. However, we need to expand the number of researchers who have the skills to excel in this fast-moving environment.


What's Happening at PCORI?

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute sends weekly emails about opportunities to apply for funding, newly funded research studies and engagement projects, results of our funded research, webinars, and other new information posted on our site.
