Patient Centered Outcomes

The PCOR Unit facilitates clinical research that addresses the comparative effectiveness of different healthcare options from the perspective of patient outcomes.


The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Unit of the DCR was established to address the research needs and funding opportunities provided by the creation of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The PCOR Unit seeks to facilitate research through proposal preparation consultations, outcome measure support, and stakeholder engagement assistance to help investigators who are navigating the waters of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute or conducting PCOR studies.
