Essential Hospitals Join PCORI Initiative to Implement Research Findings

Ten essential hospitals are participating in a new Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) initiative to increase the adoption of health research findings into practice.

PCORI estimates an average 17-year lag between publication of results and their uptake in practice. The Health Systems Implementation Initiative provides $50 million for participating health systems to decrease the lag. Participants will engage in a learning network and can apply for up to $500,000 in additional funding for projects focused on preparing for implementation and program evaluation.

Among the program’s 42 participants are these America’s Essential Hospitals members:

  • Atrium Health, in Charlotte, N.C.
  • Harris Health, in Houston.
  • Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, in San Francisco.
  • Temple Health, in Philadelphia.
  • Nebraska Medicine, in Omaha, Neb.
  • UChicago Medicine, in Chicago.
  • UCSF Health, in San Francisco.
  • MU Health Care, in Columbia, Mo.
  • UF Health, in Gainesville, Fla.
  • Valleywise Health, in Phoenix.
