Collaborative Research Groups

PCORnet’s Collaborative Research Groups (CRGs) catalyze new multi-network research. Each below CRG team is composed of content experts from within the Network focused on generating high priority, engaging research questions to leverage PCORnet’s unique infrastructure.

The CRGs collaborate with stakeholders including patients, caregivers, advocacy groups, providers, and funders early on to move research forward more quickly and more efficiently.

While the high-level focus of each CRG is broad, they may also contain Research Interest Groups (RIGs), that are dedicated to more specific research areas. For example, the Pediatrics CRG has specific RIGs for Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Pediatric Hypertension, and Sickle Cell Disease.

In addition to developing high priority research questions, the CRGs develop common data elements relevant to the CRG focus area for use in the Common Data Model, advance the science of patient-centered outcomes and pragmatic research through innovative methods, and assist the PCORnet Front Door with research requests.
