Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute Commences Comment Period for Draft Methodology Report
July 23rd, 2012
Today, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) announced a public comment period for its landmark draft Methodology Report, which proposes standards for the conduct of patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). The report, which identifies 60 standards for PCOR, was produced by PCORI’s 17-member Methodology Committee, a panel of top research methodology experts appointed by the U.S. Government Accountability Office. The report is a critical step in guiding health care stakeholders towards the best and most appropriate methods for conducting PCOR. The AGS has been continuously engaged with PCORI, and will plan to submit formal comments by the September 14 deadline.
