The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is authorized by Congress to conduct research to provide information about the best available evidence to help patients and their health care providers make more informed decisions. PCORI’s research is intended to give patients a better understanding of the prevention, treatment and care options available, and the science that supports those options.
The Program Officer is integral to the programmatic functions of PCORI’s Research Synthesis team, a growing program that supports systematic and transparent synthesis of health studies in order to 1) increase access to high quality and up-to-date research evidence and 2) assist in setting research priorities. The Research Synthesis team strives to be innovative in approach to product development with the goal of producing work that is meaningful to a wide range of stakeholders such as patients, caregivers, physicians, researchers, payers, and policy makers. Examples of recent work include PCORI’s evidence map of Social Needs Interventions to Improve Health Outcomes and a rapid review to guide future research initiatives focused on Video Teleconferencing for Disease Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment (recently published in Annals of Internal Medicine). We are currently partnering with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to complete systematic reviews to inform strategies for reducing maternal morbidity and mortality as well as improving health of persons living with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
The Program Officer for Research Synthesis is responsible for strategic decision-making, management and monitoring of a portfolio of evidence synthesis products (e.g. systematic reviews, rapid reviews, evidence maps) that advance PCORI’s patient-centered research agenda. The primary responsibilities of the Program Officer include providing intellectual and organizational leadership to shape the Research Synthesis program agenda, work with stakeholders (external and within PCORI) to identify and develop topics, award and manage a diverse portfolio of contracts, and evaluate program activities to further the strategic direction of the Research Synthesis program. Specifically, the Program Officer will develop statements of work for contracts that will meet the requirements of stakeholder assessments, liaison across teams at PCORI, and work with Procurement to select meritorious contractors for the work. The Program Officer will then oversee the contractor’s work to provide insight on PCORI’s needs and requirements as well as to ensure timely completion of quality products. This position requires a deep understanding of clinical research study design along with additional key skills including careful attention to details, personal initiative, creativity, flexibility, and excellent relationship building skills. Experience with research synthesis products and methods is desirable.
