PCORI Help Center

If the interventions being tested include staff or interventions not already available at the site, such as pharmacists, dietitians, health coaches, or community health workers, would the contract cover these personnel costs?

PCORI prefers that the costs of clinical care, including such personnel costs, be covered by usual coverage practices. PCORI will cover personnel costs for administering informed consent and collecting data and other research-related costs. In special circumstances, the application’s Research Plan may explain how stakeholders, including payers, would consider covering the costs of these additional personnel should the interventions be found to be comparatively effective. In such cases, PCORI may consider covering these personnel costs in the study.
