  • Studies on the lived experiences of those with disease, illness, and interventions
  • Clinical studies on a range of interventions including preventive, behavioral, medical, surgical, or delivery system
  • Comparative effectiveness studies
  • Prospective observational studies
  • Post-market evaluations of interventions that are already in use to assess safety and effectiveness in a sub-population and support label expansion

“The National Health Council (NHC) is proud to partner with PCORnet to engage patients to develop and use patient-relevant research, informatics, and regulatory infrastructure to rapidly conduct comparative effectiveness research that advances Learning Health Systems”

— Marc Boutin, JD, CEO of the National Health Council

“Patients don't always know the intricacies of the human body and role of medicine, and healthcare researchers don't know what it feels like to live with a chronic condition daily. How do we have intellectual humility to recognize true expertise in both and have the patience and willingness to teach, learn and co-construct research together? #PCORnet”
