This year, nearly 1,000 members of the healthcare community will convene for a two-and-a-half-day conference. As part of this year's theme, "From Evidence to Impact: Putting What Works into Action," attendees will hear about results from PCORI’s comparative clinical effectiveness (CER) studies, efforts to promote essential findings, and those findings’ impacts. We will also discuss important trends in patient-centered outcomes research and connect with colleagues to share ideas for future research opportunities that will help patients and those who care for them make better-informed healthcare decisions.
We are pleased to host two keynote speakers:
- Amy Berman, RN
Senior Program Officer, The John A. Hartford Foundation
- Mark Smith, MD, MBA
Founding President and Chief Executive Officer, California Health Care Foundation
