In March 2021, PCORI's Board of Governors approved a set of four Principles for the Consideration of the Full Range of Outcomes Data in PCORI-Funded Research, which will guide how we implement our expanded authority to consider the potential burdens and economic impacts of healthcare services in the research we fund.

This authority, part of PCORI's 2019 reauthorizing law, clarifies that PCORI-funded studies should capture "the full range of clinical and patient-centered outcomes," specifically adding "the potential burdens and economic impacts" of healthcare services to the patient-centered outcomes and clinical effectiveness measures that have been the hallmarks of the research we have funded to date.

Learn more about how we developed the Principles here.
