PCORI Annual Meeting

October 31, 2018 - November 2, 2018

Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute Annual Meeting

Join colleagues from across the healthcare community at PCORI’s fourth Annual Meeting, an opportunity to learn more about PCORI-funded studies evaluating which care options work best for whom, based on outcomes patients care about. Our Annual Meeting brings together patients, caregivers, researchers, clinicians, payers, employers, policy makers, and others to explore how we can create a healthcare system that provides greater value to all.

There is no registration fee for this year’s event, which will highlight results of several dozen studies that can help patients and those who care for them make better-informed healthcare decisions. Register now.
