PCORI’s Portfolio is a searchable repository of PCORI-funded research studies and research-related projects. 

PCORI primarily funds patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER). We also fund projects designed to facilitate the meaningful involvement of patients, caregivers, clinicians and other healthcare communities throughout the research process. In addition, PCORI supports projects that disseminate and implement PCORI-funded research findings, and projects designed to improve the nation’s capacity to conduct patient-centered CER, including through a national resource known as PCORnet®

The fields below describe the various aspects of PCORI-funded research studies and research-related projects. Not all fields are included on all records. Rather, the fields included on each project page vary according to the type of funding received, for example, CER or CER-related study, engagement or dissemination and implementation project, etc.).


Approval Date
The year that PCORI approved the research study or project for funding.

Health Conditions
The health conditions that are addressed by or included in the research study or implementation project. These tags are added to a study or project's award page a couple of months after they have been funded.

Intervention Strategy
The intervention strategies being implemented by the research study, such as drug intervention, behavioral intervention, etc. Used only for research studies. These tags are added to a study award page a couple of months after they have been funded.

Organization
The primary institution or organization that received funding for the research study or project. The Principal Investigator (for Research studies) and the Project Lead (for other projects) are from the primary institution or organization.  

Other Principal Investigator
An additional lead investigator for a PCORI-funded research study. This investigator may be affiliated with a different institution or organization from the Principal Investigator. Used for Research studies and Dissemination & Implementation projects when applicable.

Principal Investigator
The lead researcher and primary contact for a PCORI-funded research study. Used for Research studies and Dissemination & Implementation projects.

Project Budget
The funding amount awarded to the research study or project by PCORI, which may be subject to modification based on award of additional funding.

Project End Date
The date the research study or project ended or is expected to end, which may be subject to modification to ensure the project can complete its objectives given unanticipated factors.

Project Lead
The primary point of contact for the PCORI-funded project. Used for non-research projects.

Project Status
View definitions of the life cycle of an awarded study or project.

Project Type
PCORI funds four primary award types, each with sub-categories of research studies and projects, as well as a category of Other Evidence Projects. 

  • Research studies are CER studies designed to improve patient outcomes by comparing two or more care approaches or to enhance the methods and infrastructure needed to support such research. 
  • Engagement in Research projects are designed to encourage better integration of patients and other health and healthcare communities into the CER process or dissemination of research findings. These are not considered research studies. 
  • Research Infrastructure projects are designed to enhance CER infrastructure; optimize use, accessibility, quality and interoperability of real-world data, such as through PCORI’s funding of PCORnet®; and foster the professional development and diversity of the CER workforce. 
  • Dissemination and Implementation projects are designed to support the uptake of findings from PCORI-funded research in real-world practice to improve health care and health outcomes and promote the use of effective shared decision-making approaches in healthcare settings to help patients, caregivers, clinicians, and other healthcare decision makers make choices that are best for them. 
  • Other Evidence Products fall within our broader research synthesis efforts, which take advantage of a wide variety of tools to pull together and analyze results for public use.

Populations
The populations for which the study is likely to yield evidence. These tags are added to a study award page a couple of months after they have been funded.

State
The state where the research study or project is based. Those studies and projects with multiple sites are listed in the organization or institution headquarter state.

Title
The latest title of the research study or project. In some cases, the title changed during the award. In those cases, the original title is listed on the project summary page and is supplied by the Principal Investigator or Project Lead.

Year Awarded
The year the research study or project contract was executed.
