NASHP is excited to announce a new learning collaborative for states seeking to develop or enhance processes for evidence-based health policymaking with a specific focus on using patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and comparative effectiveness research (CER). This project, with support from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), will convene multi-agency teams from three states to work towards achieving three primary goals:
- Increase the use of evidence, including PCOR and CER, within state health policy decision making
- Establish a structure for inter-agency collaboration on the use of this research
- Develop a strategy for the meaningful engagement of the patient in program and policy development within various state agencies
