New National Database Could Revolutionize Comparative Effectiveness Research

A little-known government research agency with limited funding is engaging in one of the most ambitious medical data-gathering projects to date. The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute PCORI is aiming to integrate patient data from 29 health data networks across the country to provide a diverse, national, ready-made database of information that can be used in comparative effectiveness research CER studies without the need to search for and recruit new participants. By mid-2015, PCORI plans to have PCORNet, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network, operational and ready to support CER studies.
