PCORI's Proposed Research Agenda

The Public Comment Period is Now Open! (December 10, 2021 - January 31, 2022)

It endeavors to inform a portfolio of patient-centered research that addresses current unmet information needs of patients, their caregivers, clinicians, purchasers, payers, health researchers, and other healthcare system stakeholders in making personalized healthcare decisions across a wide range of conditions and treatments. The proposed Research Agenda includes six statements. Click the links below to learn more and provide comments.
