WASHINGTON, DC — The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Board of Governors has approved $5 million in funding for research focused on the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
“Funding PCORI projects focused on PROMIS® will allow us to substantially advance the use of these tools in comparative effectiveness research,” said PCORI Executive Director Joe Selby, MD, MPH. “Working with the NIH allows us to build on its investment in a comprehensive, flexible, and patient-centered measurement system.”
Created in 2004, PROMIS® was initiated to address the need for comprehensive tools that are individualized, brief, highly precise, and valid for comparisons across the age spectrum and among healthy individuals as well as individuals with different diseases or health conditions. In 2013 PCORI formed the NIH/PCORI PROMIS® Task Force to explore how PROMIS®-related research could advance PCORI’s goals of building capacity to conduct patient-centered outcomes research.
Funding for the PCORI PROMIS® initiative, approved by the Board during its January 14 meeting (held by teleconference/webinar), will be competitive and open to any investigator interested in furthering PROMIS-focused research. The $5 million in dedicated funds will be made available as part of the next PCORI Methods Funding Announcement from PCORI’s research priority area on Accelerating Patient‐Centered Outcomes Research and Methodological Research. PCORI will fund individual projects for up to two years and up to a per project maximum of $500,000. Information and deadlines for upcoming PCORI funding announcements are available in the Funding Opportunities section of PCORI's website.
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.
