Its mission is to fund research that will provide patients, their caregivers and clinicians with the evidence-based information needed to make better decisions.


How is it funded?

A trust fund receives income from the general fund of the Treasury and a fee assessed on Medicare, private health insurance and self insured plans.


How much funding does it have?

PCORI will receive $150 million from the general fund and $1 per member per year from insurance carriers and Medicare for a total of $320 million in 2013.


How many awards has it granted for research?

PCORI aims to commit to at least $350 million in support for patient-centered research in 2013. It has already approved 76 studies totaling $129.3 million overall.


What is its research agenda?

• Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options-projects that address critical decisions that patients, their caregivers, and clinicians face with too little information.

• Improving Healthcare Systems-projects that address critical decisions that face healthcare systems, patients and caregivers who rely on these systems, and clinicians who work within them.

• Communication and Dissemination-projects that address critical elements in the communication and dissemination process among patients, their caregivers, and clinicians.

• Addressing Disparities-projects that will inform the choice of strategies to eliminate disparities.

• Accelerating Patient-Centered Outcomes Research and Methodological Research-studies to address gaps in methodological research relevant to conducting patient-centered outcomes research.
