WASHINGTON, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Partnership to Improve Patient Care (PIPC) and Bloomberg Government today co-hosted "Achieving Patient-Centered CER: Looking Ahead to 2013," a forum on how implementation of patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER) is progressing at the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). After opening remarks by PIPC Chairman Tony Coelho, Dr. Joe Selby, the executive director of PCORI, gave a keynote speech and Brian Rye, healthcare analyst with Bloomberg Government, moderated a panel discussion with healthcare leaders and patient advocates.
Bloomberg Government and PIPC held the forum to discuss how PCORI is developing a patient-centered CER program, with focused attention on how input from stakeholders, including patients and providers, is being incorporated in PCORI's research priorities. PCORI was established to produce and promote comparative clinical effectiveness research that is responsive to the research gaps identified by patients, physicians, and providers, with the ultimate goal of helping people make better informed healthcare decisions. The forum brought together key stakeholders to help provide PCORI with information from the patient perspective, along with insightful solutions on how to best achieve patient-centered CER.
"Since coming together in 2008, PIPC has been very vocal about our dedication to ensuring that patients are at the center of CER, especially patient communities that are often overlooked in research – such as people with disabilities, minority communities and the elderly," said Tony Coelho. "We have shown great support for PCORI and we continue to stay focused on determining ways to incorporate input from patients and providers that will shape PCORI's work in a meaningful way and produce research that patients see as most pressing."
Participants on the panel included Marc M. Boutin with the National Health Council, Donna R. Cryer, a patient advocate, Mark Horn with Target Health and David Introcaso, a healthcare policy consultant.
The Partnership to Improve Patient Care was formed in November 2008 to support proposals to expand the government's role in comparative effectiveness research that are centered on patient and provider needs; raise awareness about the value of well-designed CER; and promote the important role of continued medical innovation as part of the solution to cost and quality challenges in health care. Partnership members include a wide range of health care organizations representing patient advocacy, provider, and industry groups.
