PCOR Strategic Opportunities Project (SOP) Contract
The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) are partnering to lead a HHS cross-Departmental effort to identify strategic opportunities for building a comprehensive, interoperable and sustainable data infrastructure for patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). ONC has awarded a contract to the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago to assist with this effort.

During this effort NORC will be assembling multiple advisory groups to explore different standards, policies and services required to establish this infrastructure. In addition ONC will be posting documents from this effort for public input. Stay tuned for information on how to get involved in this important endeavor.

The Affordable Care Act of 2010 directs the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to build data capacity for PCOR, and makes available a cumulative estimated total of almost $200 million through FY 2019 for this purpose via the Office of the Secretary's Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Trust Fund.
