PCORI is hosting a series of community convenings across the U.S. as part of a strategic initiative to identify new National Priorities for Health to guide our mission-driven work and outline a Research Agenda that encompasses specific topic areas. The convening of Colorado community health leaders, joined by DeGette, offers local stakeholders opportunities to provide input and avenues to engage with PCORI during this important time in the organization’s evolution. Previous convenings brought together West Virginia and Maryland community health leaders to discuss themes relevant to regional stakeholders and PCORI’s proposed National Priorities for Health.
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is an independent nonprofit organization authorized by Congress in 2010. Its mission is to fund research that will provide patients, their caregivers and clinicians with the evidence-based information needed to make better-informed healthcare decisions. PCORI is committed to continually seeking input from a broad range of stakeholders to guide its work.
