We at the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute are pleased that Congress has reauthorized PCORI’s funding for 10 years and the legislation has been signed into law. This means we can continue to fulfill our mission of funding research that helps patients consulting with their doctors to weigh their healthcare options and make the best choices based on their values, preferences, and circumstances.
In addition, reauthorization ensures that PCORI has the resources to continue funding new implementation projects, which employ practical strategies and approaches to get useful research findings taken up more quickly in a variety of care settings. It also allows us to fund additional efforts to enhance the methods for conducting rigorous research as well as more projects that build communities prepared to engage in and advance patient-centered research.
We appreciate the outpouring of support from more than 200 organizations and individuals who called for reauthorization of our funding. That affirmation and the broad bipartisan support that our reauthorization received in Congress are testaments to the important role PCORI plays in health research in the United States. PCORI is the country’s leading research organization dedicated to funding studies comparing which care approaches work best for which patients, focused on outcomes most important to them.
PCORI has also been acknowledged as a leader in influencing the US clinical research enterprise to become more patient centered. We rely on input from patients and other stakeholders to guide all our work. And we ensure that they have a seat at the table throughout the research process, helping to prioritize research topics, design and conduct the studies, and share the results.
We look forward to continuing to partner with patients and the broader healthcare community to support research that provides patients and their healthcare providers the information they need to make optimal healthcare decisions. Together, we can continue to improve patient care and outcomes and reduce the burden that some of our country’s most pressing healthcare issues impose on individuals, their families, and the healthcare system.
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.
