The use of PCORnet®, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network, is not required. Applicants proposing to use an existing research network infrastructure (e.g., PCORnet), research consortia, or related data resources (e.g., electronic medical records data from healthcare delivery systems or administrative claims data from public or commercial insurers) should address this with sufficient specificity in the Research Plan, as appropriate. Applicants should also refer to the PCORI Methodology Standards for Data Networks as Research-Facilitating Structures.
