About Us

PCORI has long prided itself on what we’ve referred to as research done differently. That means patients and other stakeholders are at the center of every step, from prioritizing research topics, to reviewing applications for funding, to refining research questions and study design, to dissemination of results. We had a strong sense that putting stakeholders in the driver’s seat would make our results more relevant and useful.

We also expected that others would adopt this concept in their work after we’d demonstrated that research developed this way gains quick adoption and affects healthcare and outcomes. Such a demonstration takes time, so we’ve been pleasantly surprised to see that the concept has already taken root elsewhere.

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.
