Research priorities report debuts

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), established by the Affordable Care Act, released its first major report on January 23, 2012 – Draft National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda – with a comment period open to the public until March 15.  The report does not identify specific diseases or conditions on which it intends to focus its generous funding ($4.5 billion through 2019); rather, it outlines broad categories under which research projects might be submitted for consideration:

  • Comparisons of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment options
  • Improving health care systems
  • Communication and dissemination
  • Addressing disparities
  • Accelerating patient-centered and methodological research

PCORI is looking for participation from patients, caregivers, researchers and the general public.  General information can be found at http://www.pcori.org/2012/priorities-agenda/.
