PCORI Offers Funding, Seeks Ambassadors

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) has announced funding for collaborative efforts by groups and individuals, including hospitals, to produce meaningful patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER) projects.

The goal of the Pipeline to Proposals Initiative Tier I funding is to build capacity and engage individual patients, researchers, and other stakeholders who want to explore a specific health issue. Awardees, which include individuals or groups, can receive up to $15,000 for development of CER projects.

Interested applicants should submit a letter of intent by Jan. 20.

PCORI also has launched an Ambassadors Program to expand knowledge of and participation in patient-centered outcomes research nationally through appointed individuals and organizational ambassadors. Ambassadors would

  • engage with other ambassadors and health care professionals to promote PCORI research and findings;
  • work with a national network of patient-centered outcomes research;
  • help distribute PCORI research findings; and
  • promote PCORI initiatives and programs to stakeholders.

Additional information about funding opportunities can be found on the PCORI website.

Contact Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at eomalley@essentialhospitals.org or 202.585.0127 with questions.
