Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
AHRQ intends to publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to broadly solicit applications for research centers to participate in the “Developing Evidence to Inform Decisions about Effectiveness” (DEcIDE) Network, a component of AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program (see http://effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/). AHRQ plans to continue the collaborative research network that it established in 2005 with a specific focus on comparative effectiveness and patient-centered outcomes research (CER/PCOR) and methodologies that are designed to support evidence-base decision-making in patient communities served by (1) Medicare; or (2) State Medicaid and/or Children’s Health Insurance (CHIP) programs. Overall FOA objectives are to conduct original research and appropriately disseminate the results to stakeholders.
