Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute Approves $142.5 Million for Expansion Phase of PCORnet, a National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Board of Governors approved nearly $142.5 million to support the ongoing development and expansion of an ambitious new resource for health research known as PCORnet, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network. The funds include support to add seven health data networks to this large, collaborative initiative, which is designed to link researchers, patient communities, clinicians, and health systems in productive research partnerships that leverage the power of large volumes of health data maintained by the partner networks. PCORI is developing PCORnet to enhance the nation's capacity to conduct patient-centered health outcomes research more quickly, less expensively, and with greater potential impact than is now possible. Through the active participation of patients and other healthcare stakeholders, PCORnet will ensure that research focuses on the questions and outcomes that matter most to patients and those who care for them.
