Employer Insights from Patient Centered-outcomes Research Institute


The National Alliance was selected a recipient of two Engagement Awards through the Patient-centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) now underway through February 2021.  The purpose of both grants is two-fold; 1) Through the efforts of Alliance dissemination campaigns, employers will increase their awarenesss and utilization of healthcare research to positively impact patient-centered outcomes of their workforce and 2) PCORI research will become more relevant to Employers through their deeper understanding of healthcare issues that are important to the Purchaser Stakeholder.
