AHRQ Awards Grant to Engage Stakeholders in the Use of Clinical Decision Support to Incorporate Patient Centered Outcomes Research Findings into Clinical Practice

A new learning network grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will explore with stakeholders how patient centered outcomes research (PCOR) findings can be incorporated into clinical practice through health IT-enabled clinical decision support (CDS). Patient centered outcomes – defined as the results of medical care that are important to patients –can give patients and providers the power to make more informed health decisions. This network will bring together multiple public and private stakeholders and monitor and measure the dissemination and use of PCOR findings in vendor-based and open source CDS tools. Please visit the AHRQ website for more information on RTI International, the PCOR-CDS grantee.
