PCORI believes that requests for data must demonstrate scientific merit. As such, the Policy articulates criteria by which proposals are to be evaluated by the review committee. These criteria include but are not limited to: a scientific purpose that is clearly described; the data requested will be used to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge to inform science, medicine and/or public health; the proposed research can be reasonably addressed using the requested data; the data requestor team has the appropriate expertise to conduct the proposed research; and the proposed research includes question(s) and outcomes that are relevant to patients.
