Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute

The Alliance for Aging Research supports the work of Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Its goal is to “fund research that can help patients and those who care for them make better-informed decisions about the healthcare choices they face every day, guided by those who will use that information.”

In 2019, the Alliance for Aging Research and the Partnership to Improve Patient Care convened the Friends of PCORI Reauthorization, a coalition of patient and family caregiver organizations, health provider associations, biopharma/life science companies, payers, and other interested entities and individuals supportive of PCORI reauthorization.

In 2017, the Alliance received a PCORI Eugene Washington Engagement Award to develop a  Senior Patient and Family Caregiver Network (SP&FCN). This network addresses the significant under representation of older adults and their family caregivers in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and comparative effectiveness research (CER).
