Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute announces 2 awards to Group Health
Date:12/27/2012

Seattle, WAGroup Health has been approved for two research awards from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to study ways to improve care for back pain and to connect patients with community resources. The projects are part of a portfolio of patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research that addresses PCORI's National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda.

Authorized by the Affordable Care Act, PCORI is an independent nonprofit dedicated to funding comparative clinical effectiveness research. In its first cycle of funding, with 25 projects approved nationwide, PCORI awarded two to Washington state, both to Group Health, a "learning health system" where research and care delivery inform each other:

Group Health Research Institute (GHRI) Senior Investigator Dan Cherkin, PhD, will lead a project on back pain, which is an extremely common condition. The project will develop and test a tool for finding out which patients are at risk for long-term back pain and which evidence-based treatments are most likely to help them based on their levels of risk. The tool will be based on one that was developed and found effective in England for tailoring treatment type and intensity to the needs of each individual patient with back pain. Many health care systems have expressed interest in using this tool in the United States, but Group Health will be the first to do so. Patients and health care providers will be involved in adapting the tool to be user-friendlyand will test and evaluate it in Group Health primary care clinics. Dr. Cherkin also directs Bastyr University Research Institute. His collaborators on this project will be Group Health Assistant Medical Director Martin Levine, MD; Research Associate Clarissa Hsu, PhD; Associate Investigator Andrea Cook, PhD; Senior Investigator Karen Sherman, PhD, MPH; and Research Associate Ben Balderson, PhD. Other significant contributors will be Group Health Director of Strat
