Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)

Our strategic partnership

PCORI is an independent, nonprofit research organization that seeks to empower patients and others with actionable information about their health and healthcare choices. Through our partnership, the National Alliance shares evidence-based research relevant to employers and other plan sponsors to support informed decision-making for employees and their families. In addition, the National Alliance is providing input into PCORI’s research agenda so future studies can better enhance and inform employer strategies.

Advancing Research and Building Awareness through a Multi-faceted Approach

  • Engagement Awards lay the groundwork for disseminating PCORI-funded research findings to spread awareness and increase knowledge about those findings.
  • Interactive Learning including webinars that bring together National Alliance coalition and healthcare industry leaders, principal investigators, and others to fulfill Engagement Award commitments and ensure a broad audience has access to trending research.
  • National Reach grows when National Alliance leaders convene meetings with advisors, reporting on findings, sharing expertise, and exploring pathways to create more meaningful patient engagement.

Our Work With PCORI

The National Alliance has been working with PCORI since 2017, sharing the belief that empowering patients and others with actionable information about their health and healthcare choices can be effectively and efficiently accomplished by rolling out Comparative Clinical Effectiveness Research (CER) through employers.
