PCORI Invites LOIs for Patient-Centered Healthcare Research

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute helps people make informed healthcare decisions and works to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes by producing and promoting high-integrity, evidence-based information grounded in research guided by patients, caregivers, and the broader healthcare community.

PCORI is inviting Letters of Inquiry for its Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program. Through the program, the institute will award grants of up to $250,000 over two years to projects that encourage the active integration of patients, caregivers, clinicians, and other healthcare stakeholders as integral members of the patient-centered outcomes research/clinical effectiveness research (PCOR/CER) enterprise.

Applications may be submitted by any private or public-sector organization, including any nonprofit or for-profit organization, or any unit of local, state, or the federal government. All U.S. applicant nonprofit organizations must be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. Non-domestic components of organizations based in the United States and foreign organizations also may apply, as long as there is demonstrable benefit to the U.S. healthcare system and U.S. efforts in the area of patient-centered research can be clearly shown.

Letters of Intent must be received no later than February 1, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a complete applications within forty days of receiving the invitation.
