WASHINGTON, DC — The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) today named Kristin Carman, MA, PhD, as its new Director of Public and Patient Engagement. In this position, she will be responsible for leading and directing PCORI’s overall efforts to see that patients and other healthcare stakeholders are fully involved in and guide all aspects of PCORI’s work.
Carman joins PCORI from the American Institutes for Research, where she served as Vice President and Director of the Center for Patient and Consumer Engagement, and a Co-Director of the Health Policy and Research Group, a team of more than 70 health-services research professionals. In that role, she helped conduct research on issues of public importance in healthcare quality, access, and financing; comparative effectiveness; patient and family engagement; health systems improvement; public deliberation; and health-related communications. She also led groundbreaking engagement projects funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
“We are thrilled to have someone with Kristin Carman’s expertise and experience join us to oversee our ongoing efforts to ensure that the research we fund continues to be responsive to the needs of patients and others across the healthcare community,” said Jean Slutsky, PA, MSPH, PCORI’s Chief Engagement and Dissemination Officer. “Kristin has an impressive background in supporting efforts to engage a range of public audiences in the kind of research PCORI funds. We and all of our stakeholders will benefit greatly from her leadership and perspective as we continue to fund critical patient-centered studies and prepare to share a wealth of new research findings.”
Carman has spearheaded consumer engagement research projects funded through AHRQ and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. She has also previously served as a member of PCORI’s Advisory Panel on Patient Engagement.
