Healthcare reform board seeks comment on research agenda

{mosads}”We want to hear from patients, caregivers, providers  and the wider health care community on whether our draft priorities and initial research agenda capture the broad areas where more evidence-based information is needed to make better decisions,” PCORI Board Chairman Eugene Washington said in a statement. “This is a major milestone in our work as we continue to collaborate with all stakeholders and to build on the work of others for what we  expect will be the most patient-centered research agenda yet.”

The draft National Priorities for Research identifies five areas where comparative effectiveness research is needed to support decision-making:

• Assessment of Options for Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment;

• Improving Health Care Systems;

• Communication and Dissemination Research;

• Addressing Disparities; and

• Accelerating Patient-Centered Outcomes Research and Methodological Research.

Comments are due by the end of the day March 15 and can be delivered via the board’s website. PCORI is also hosting a daylong dialogue about the agenda with stakeholders on Feb. 27.
