Logos for Health Affairs and PCORI

PCORI is pleased to support the March 2019 Health Affairs theme issue on "Patients As Consumers." The issue offers an expansive look at consumers’ perceptions of and perspectives on their role in the health care system. Areas examined include patient engagement in choosing plans, providers, and treatment; payment and benefit models that encourage and support consumer participation; and consumer roles in research, organization, and governance of the health care system. At this briefing in Washington, DC, panels of authors—several of whom are associated with PCORI—presented their work and participated in discussions of other topics, such as Engaging In Care and Engaging In Research. Below, watch video interviews with several of the speakers/authors, as well as the full briefing.
