Friends of PCORI Reauthorization Urges Congress to Reauthorize PCORI

On Monday, May 13, 2019, Friends of PCORI Reauthorization members sent letters to both the House and Senate expressing their strong support of the reauthorization of Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The letters urge Congress to enable PCORI to continue its work toward achieving smarter and more efficient health care spending by considering the following recommendations:

  • Reauthorize PCORI and its current funding mechanism for at least an additional 10 years.
  • Ensure PCORI stays true to its mission of patient-centered research by maintaining its mandate to conduct comparative clinical effectiveness research.

To read the recommendations in full detail, read the House letter and the Senate letter.
