Last week, OCHIN, Inc. was awarded nearly $7 million by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute to establish itself as part of PCORI’s new Patient-Centered National Clinical Research Network. Jennifer DeVoe, M.D., DPhil, OCHIN’s research director and an associate professor in OHSU’s Department of Family Medicine, is principal investigator on the project.
“By collaborating across the nation we hope to provide results that will inform policy and improve patient and population health outcomes,” Dr. DeVoe said. “This opportunity with PCORI comes at a time when our nation is working to transform healthcare and needs the best evidence possible to ensure that care is more patient-centered. I’m so proud to be serving on this team.”
