Discover how you can conduct efficient, patient-centric research, using a national resource.

PCORnet, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network, is an innovative network of networks advancing the use of electronic health data in comparative effectiveness research.

PCORnet is designed to make it faster, easier and less costly to conduct clinical research by harnessing the power of large amounts of health data and patient partnerships.

Webinar Takeaways:

  • Transform trials with information on the patient-centered ecosystem, the distributed architecture of the network, and access to data as well as disparate data sources
  • Obtain information on the health systems, health plans, and other stakeholders (communities and patients) involved in the infrastructure
  • Use PCORnet as a resource in conducting various types of research such as, large pragmatic clinical trials, prospective and retrospective observational studies
  • Gain advanced capabilities to recruit and enroll
  • Enhance ascertainment of outcomes through the increased ability to link to partners with claims data and patient reported outcomes
  • Optimize infrastructure with respect to specific conditions and communities
