On September 7, 2022, PCORI's Online System will open for the submission of Letters of Intent (LOI) for the following Cycle 3 2022 PCORI Funding Announcements (PFAs). LOIs are due October 4, 2022 by 5 pm ET and applications are due January 10, 2023 by 5 pm ET.
Telehealth to Optimize Management of Multiple Chronic Conditions among Vulnerable Populations in Primary Care
This PFA will solicit applications that respond to the following question: What is the comparative clinical effectiveness of different approaches to incorporating access to and use of telehealth to optimize management of multiple chronic conditions in primary care, particularly among vulnerable populations?
Healthy Aging: Optimizing Physical and Mental Functioning Across the Aging Continuum
This PFA will solicit applications for research studies that focus on different phases of the aging continuum and aim to achieve one or more of the following four goals: maintaining function and independence; facilitating chronic disease management; supporting individuals with significant functional impairment; or reducing caregiving burden and improving quality of life.
Phased Large Awards for Comparative Effectiveness Research
This PFA will solicit applications that respond to the following question: What is the comparative effectiveness of health system strategies to improve hypertension control for populations experiencing disparities in hypertension control and associated health outcomes, e.g., Black, Hispanic, rural, and/or uninsured individuals?
Broad Pragmatic Studies
This PFA covers four broad areas -- Addressing Disparities; Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options; Communication and Dissemination Research; and Improving Healthcare Systems -- that encompass the patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) that PCORI has long supported. Under this standing PFA for Cycle 3, PCORI will identify Special Areas of Emphasis (SAEs) to support innovative, high-impact studies that fit clearly within our core mission of patient-engaged and patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research. The PFA will be updated as SAEs are identified, which will occur no later than four weeks prior to the opening of the cycle.
Improving Methods for Conducting Patient-Centered Outcomes Research
Through this PFA, PCORI aims to fund studies that address high-priority methodological gaps in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and CER, as well as projects that address important methodological gaps and lead to improvements in the strength and quality of evidence generated by PCOR/CER studies. The PFA includes four areas of programmatic priorities.
