This year, nearly 1,000 members of the healthcare community convened for two and a half days of updates on how scientists, patients, caregivers, clinicians, payers, and others are working together to make health research more useful and relevant. As part of this year's theme, "Delivering Results, Informing Choices," attendees heard about the results from PCORI’s earliest-funded comparative clinical effectiveness (CER) studies and efforts to promote the use of those important findings in practice. They also discussed key trends in patient-centered outcomes research and connected with colleagues to share ideas for future research opportunities that will help patients and those who care for them make better-informed healthcare decisions. Read a recap of the meeting by PCORI Executive Director Joe Selby.
