Description

Patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and health system research in general require a robust health data infrastructure to ensure that high quality data is available to fuel evidence-based findings. Through the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Trust Fund (PCORTF), the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) has funded a portfolio of projects that build national data capacity and infrastructure and to help researchers leverage existing data for PCOR. We analyzed a subset of 11 completed projects and categorized the projects’ contributions to broader health system issues and strategic federal priorities. The PCORTF projects have produced highly practical solutions, including research-focused tools for aggregating, linking, and analyzing data, as well as tools designed to increase patient autonomy in managing their health records and contributing data to research, which have broad potential for use and utility in PCOR.

Learning Objective: -to identify available solutions offered by ASPE-funded projects
-to characterize the types of challenges they ameliorate and solutions they offer for PCOR
