About Us

The People-Centered Research Foundation (PCRF) is committed to accelerating people-driven research that is faster, more user friendly for patients and providers, and less costly. Our mission is: to engage patients, families, research participants, clinicians, scientists, and health system leaders in the design, conduct, dissemination, and implementation of research and analysis that leads to improvements in the health and well-being of individuals and populations and the performance of health care delivery systems.The Foundation builds on the successes of PCORnet , which includes 33 partner networks that collaborate to conduct research that matters to patients, their clinicians, and health systems. PCORnet was launched with substantial financial investment from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Since its inception in 2014, PCORnet has launched over 20 studies and was featured in over 70 publications in scientific journals.
