Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR)What is PCOR?
Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) incorporates the realities that treatment outcomes may be different in different individuals and that patients' priorities and goals of treatment also vary. PCOR relies on input from patients and families as well as healthcare professionals.
UTMB was awarded a $4.97 million dollar grant (R24HS022134) in 2013 from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to conduct patient-centered outcomes research. AHRQ's mission is to produce evidence to make health care safer, higher quality, more accessible, equitable, and affordable, and to work with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other partners to make sure that the evidence is understood and used. Dispersed over a five-year period, this federal grant is being used to establish the infrastructure for a center on Patient-Centered Outcomes Research in the Elderly at UTMB.
