PCORI research is intended to improve the quality of the information that is available for patients who have the health condition under study in decision making as well as assist stakeholders who are most impacted by the problem the study addresses. Stakeholders may include caregivers, family members of patients, patient advocacy organizations, payers, clinicians, health system representatives, and others. For instance, if the study includes hard to reach or vulnerable populations, or patients with multiple conditions, patients and stakeholders engaged in the study should be relevant to those subgroups.
