This is Part 1 of a two-part series of convenings to explore ways in which the data infrastructure for PCORnet®, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network, might be enhanced. [View Part 2]

This webinar focused on expanding social determinants of health (SDOH) data across PCORnet, including discussion on current SDOH data collection by PCORnet network partners; challenges and opportunities to optimize accessibility and availability of individual-level, publicly available, and community-based SDOH data to support PCORnet research; and engaging stakeholders on short- and long-term infrastructure priorities to enhance SDOH data capture for networkwide research.

Hosted with NORC at the University of Chicago, the webinar offered perspectives from PCORnet network partners, PCORI, NORC, and thought leaders.
