A team led by the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) has been approved for a funding award by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to develop and expand a health data network that will be part of PCORnet: the National Patient-Centered National Clinical Research Network. The Louisiana Clinical Data Research Network (LCDRN) is one of 29 approved for a total of $93.5 million from PCORI on December 17 to form this new national resource that aims to boost the efficiency of health research. Fellows from the Health Systems Analytics Research Center, co-directed by Dr. Lizheng Shi, Regents Associate Professor at the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, will be actively involved in the new network.
