Location: Your office or conference room (no need to travel!)


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, and implementation science
  • 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
