Prior to its meeting, the BOFHP hosted a breakfast meeting with Joe V. Selby, MD, MPH, Executive Director of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Dr. Selby is a family physician who came to Washington, DC, in the Obama Administration after a 27-year career at Kaiser Permanente. In his remarks to the Bureau, Dr. Selby advised that the PCORI has established five priorities for 2012: 1) Compare preventive and diagnostic therapies; 2) Improve health care systems; 3) Impact communications and dissemination of information; 4) Address disparities; and 5) Accelerate patient-centered outcomes research. What do you think of these priorities? To demonstrate its commitment to establishing a relationship with the osteopathic medical profession, the PCORI is asking for our comments on these priorities.
