Pipeline Award Program Office (PAPO) West: Patient Centered Outcomes and Research

Funding Source:

Patient Centered Outcomes and Research Institute (PCORI)

Description:

PCORI was authorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 as a non-profit, nongovernmental organization and is charged with helping patients, clinicians, purchasers, and policy makers make better-informed health decisions by “advancing the quality and relevance of evidence about how to prevent, diagnose, treat, monitor, and manage diseases, disorders, and other health conditions.”

PCORI’s Pipeline to Proposal Awards (also called Pipeline Awards), a progressive, three-tiered funding approach, aims to accelerate research proposal submission and dissemination and to develop a nationwide foundation of patients, stakeholders, and researchers equipped and eager to participate in patient-centered outcomes research.

Because PCORI has a limited headquarters workforce, the operational, programmatic, and fiscal duties associated with Tier I Pipeline Awards was awarded to CFPHE because of our significant research capacity building and award management experience (e.g., grant and contract award administration).
